Træsort

Når du skal ud og investere i et skateboard deck, skal du som regel vælge kold-limet ahorn træ. Ahorn er i vores optik det bedste valg, fordi det både er hårdt, slidstærkt og formstabilt. Ahorn kan derfor holde til hårdhændet brug helt uden at blive deformt eller at knække. Ahorn er faktisk så formstabilt, at det bl.a. også bruges til eksempelvis: møbler, gulve, finer og køkkenredskaber. Ahorn har desuden et meget lille svind og er derfor især godt til produkter, som ikke må give sig – såsom musikinstrumenter. Derudover bruger man som bonus også ahorn til diverse skulpturer og træsko.

Deckstørrelse

På HVS Boardshop kan du købe deckstørrelser i 7,5”, 7,75”, 8.0” og 8,25” tommer som er de mest udbredte størrelser inden for skateboard decks.

Når du skal finde den rigtige størrelse, er det primært længden på din fod, der er afgørende for størrelsen på dit skateboard deck.

  • Lille fod (str. 35-40) bør du vælge skateboard deck der er mellem 7,25” – 7,75” tommer.
  • Stor fod (str. 44- og derover) bør du vælge et skateboard deck der er mellem 8” – 8,25” tommer.

Hvis du derimod er rampe-skater, har fodstørrelsen ikke så meget at sige, da det for rampe-skatere er bedst, at købe skateboard decks, der er 8,25” tommer eller derover – da det uden tvivl, er lettest af lande rigtigt på.

  • Høj: Højprofil bruges til større hjul, og er designet til at cruise. Det sikre valg til longboards, og bruges ofte til 56mm hjul.

Skateboard hjul

Skateboardhjul måles i millimeter, mens hjulets massefylde måles i durometer på en “A” og “B”- skala, som angiver hjulets hårhed. 

Streetskatere foretrækker ofte små hjul, da den lave vægt gør det lettere at flippe boardet. Rampe og transitions- skatere foretrækker større hjul da disse giver mere fart.

How To Clean A Skateboard

So you have your prized beauty, you are able to complete and show off many unbelievable tricks on it as well, but have you ever considered that your skateboard might need some tender loving care as well?

 

Choosing a Skateboard

First of all, it is important that you know what skateboard is right for your needs. For example, if you want to do flip tricks, ollie stairs or grind rails, then you need a traditional skateboard. If you prefer to cruise while doing cutbacks, it’s either a longboard or waveboard you need.

Skateboard deck

A high quality skateboard deck is made withCanadian Maple as it is the strongest wood species. A skateboard deck is typically about 27.5 ” – 32.75 ” (70-83 cm) in length, and approx. 6.75 ” – 8.6 ” (17-22 cm) in width.

The size and width of the deck is often assessed by size in shoes – smaller shoe sizes (below size 38) typically fit with a skateboard deck of approx. 7 “. Medium size (size 38-43) typically fits with a 7-7.5 ″ skateboard deck. If you have feet larger than size 43, you will often need a 7.75 ”or higher skateboard deck.

Skateboard wheels, trucks and bearings

If you want to skate street, you will often need smaller wheels as they weigh less and keep your skateboard deck closer to the ground, providing stability.

Your trucks should preferably be as wide as your skateboard deck. In addition, your trucks must also be light and incredibly robust, which is often a compromise. You will also need 8 pieces. The ABEC scale is used as an indicator of the quality of the bearings, the higher the value, the more accurate and fast the bearings are constructed. ABEC 7-9 is used e.g. often by ramp skateboarders, whereas street skaters often settle for regular ABEC 5-7.

You must also remember Griptate! It’s basically a piece of sandpaper pasted on the top of the skateboard deck so your feet won’t slip off the skateboard.
