The Ultimate Skateboard Holiday Gift Guide

11/22/16

Big news: holiday season is in full swing. Sure, it might seem like you have plenty of time to check all those items off your list, but we’re here to tell you otherwise. The truth is that you need to start your shopping yesterday – especially if you want to find the best deals, score great shipping rates, and get everything on your list while it’s still in stock. As Santa Claus himself once said, “Failing to plan is planning to fail.” The last thing we want is for your Christmas to be failure!

To that end, we’re helping you out with a plan. That’s right – our Ultimate Skateboard Holiday Gift Guide is here. Don’t waste time trolling Google and digging through product reviews. Forget roaming a big box store and searching for a deck that won’t immediately snap in two. It doesn’t matter if you’re shopping for a skater about to go pro or a first timer who wants to learn the ways of the deck. Warehouse Skateboards has something for everyone, and it’s all on this list.

So sit back, pour yourself a tall glass of egg nog and have an extra piece of gingerbread. The hard part is over – all you need to do now is browse and buy. Merry Christmas!

A Complete Skateboard, Ready to Ride 

A complete skateboard is one that comes with all the bells and whistles, pre-assembled and ready to ride. This is a great option for those who are new to skateboarding and don’t know how to put their own deck together. It’s also great for well meaning parents who want to get their kid an awesome gift but aren’t sure how to pick out the right components. At Warehouse Skateboards, we make shopping easy. You can either build your own board or buy one ready to go. Either way, the lucky guy or gal who unwraps this gift will be able to enjoy it before Santa makes it back to the North Pole.

Safety Gear, Because Duh

It doesn’t matter if your an Olympic athlete or a brand new to the skating lifestyle – safety gear is a must. Not only does it protect you from gnarly spills and nasty falls, it also gives you the confidence you need to attempt new tricks and take your skating to places it’s never been. Warehouse Skateboards carries the best safety gear you’ll find. If you’re getting anyone a skateboard for the holidays, it’s only right to deck them out in safety gear, too.

A New Skateboard Deck

Skateboard decks only last so long before they need to be replaced, especially if you use them all the time and give them a beating. A new skateboard deck is always a welcome gift, especially when there are so many awesome brands and designs to choose from!

A Cruiser Skateboard, Ready to Ride  

Cruisers are a type of longboard. They have higher, looser trucks and softer wheels, which makes them easier to turn or “carve.” This type of skateboard is great for, well, cruising around town or through a college campus. If the person you’re shopping for likes to surf, they’ll probably love a cruiser – it mimics the feeling of carving through some gnarly waves.

Skateboarding isn’t just a sport – it’s a lifestyle. Keep your skater looking as good as they feel when they’re tearing it up at the skatepark by giving them some sweet shirts from their favorite brands. From t-shirts to flannel to hoodies, they’ll be able to proclaim their love of skateboarding and show off their style at the same time.
