11/16/17

It’s that time of year again! Santa isn’t the only one making a list and checking it twice, and once you start to take stock of everything you need to buy, the to-dos just keep coming. You finally realize you should have started shopping… last month.

Don’t sweat it; we’ve got your back. If you’re having trouble figuring out what to give the skater on your list, check out some of our top picks listed below in the annual Holiday Buying Guide! Warehouse Skateboards has some of the best deals and varied skate supplies, so you can get the top products shipped right to your door in time to fill those stockings.

Build Your Own Board

Already know everything from decks to trucks and grip tape? Cool! If you feel confident constructing a quality board for a friend or family member, our custom board builder is the way to go. We take you through the process step by step; that way you don’t forget anything important and your board is ready to go upon delivery!

Complete Skateboards

Don’t have time to customize a board on your own? Or maybe you want to get something special for an experienced skater and haven’t got a clue what the differences between brand bearings and trucks are? No problem! Warehouse carries all the best brands of complete skateboards, assembled entirely before they even arrive on your doorstep, and the info to help you make a sound purchase.

Ready-made Cruisers

If you’re looking for something more suited for day-to-day commuting, or know someone who prefers to coast, consider one of our cruiser skateboards. Cruisers are a type of longboard, which means a longer deck and higher, looser trucks for a ride that actually mimics the sensation of surfing.

Sweet Decks

We’ve got tons of awesome brands and designs for you to choose from, either for you or for someone on your shopping list. A new skateboard deck makes the perfect gift for an avid skater, especially since Santa can’t exactly bring a new one around every time your buddies take a beating for the sake of a trick!

Regardless of your skill level, every skater ought to invest in some quality safety gear. Luckily, we’ve got some rad equipment to keep you up and about long after the last gifts have been opened. And if you’re getting someone a skateboard for Christmas, maybe drop a subtle hint to mind his or her head with the addition of some extra padding and protection.
