As a parent or somebody unfamiliar with skateboarding, it can be tricky to know what products to buy the young skater in your life. There are tons of brands to consider, different size products, and a seemingly never-ending list of options when it comes to style and design. In order to help make your gift-buying process easier, we created this buying guide for skaters between ages 6-12. The products on this list are the ideal size for this age group and are popular amongst current skaters.
Completes are the perfect gift for any skater, because it comes with everything that they need to shred right out of the box. Complete skateboards range in size, but the best sizes for young skaters tend to have decks between 7”-7.3” wide. Along with the deck, a complete skateboard includes grip tape, trucks, wheels, bearings, and hardware – all assembled and ready to go. For a complete skateboard they’re guaranteed to love, check out our top selling completes for young skaters below!
