How to Get a Skateboard That is the Right Quality for You

This is an article on how to get a skateboard that is the right quality for you!

When starting out as a skater, it is very hard to know how much to pay for a skateboard. I mean you don't want to go pay two hundred bucks, when all you need is a fifty dollar board; and you don't want to go pay fifty bucks, when you really need a two hundred dollar board. You get the idea, but I'm sure you are wandering, "How much should I pay?" I had to learn the hard way. I wasted my money on Wal-Mart boards and such, but here is how you don't have to make the same mistake.

First of all, there are two main factors that affect how much you need to pay for a board that will fit your needs. Ok, so those two main factors are; how heavy you are, and what you will be doing with your board (usually more advanced tricks, do more damage to your board.)

What I'm going to do, is give you some examples and situations to give you an idea as to what quality board to get. Ok, so the first example I'm going to give is let's supposed you are just getting started as a skater and you are very serious about it. In other words, you plan to practice at least an hour a day, you plan to be able to kickflip in a month or two, and you plan to eventually get sponsored in a few years. You're just REALLY serious about it. You definitely want to go ahead and get a nice, good quality board. Ok, but how good should the quality be? Now that depends on your size. If you are 70 lbs. or below, you will need to get anywhere from about a $40 to $60 board. If you are anywhere from 70 to 100 lbs. then you will need anywhere from about a $70 to $100 board. If you are anywhere from 100 to 200 lbs. then you will need anywhere from about a $100 to $200 board. So if you are a serious skater, those are the ranges you will need.

Next, let's suppose you are not too serious about skating, you just want to learn a few simple tricks like a basic small Ollie, a Manuel, etc. And you just skate every now and then, like maybe half an hour every other day. Here are the ranges if that is what you plan to do with your board. If you are 70 lbs. or below, you will need to get anywhere from about a $20 to $30 board. If you are anywhere from 70 to 100 lbs. then you will need anywhere from about a $30 to $60 board. If you are anywhere from 100 to 200 lbs. then you will need somewhere from about a $60 to $100 board.

Last, let's suppose you are not very serious about skating. You do not plan on doing any tricks; you just plan on riding around with it. If that is what you plan on doing with your board, then here are the ranges for you. If you are 70 lbs. or below, you will need to get anywhere from about a $10 to $20 board. If you are anywhere from 70 to 100 lbs. then you will need anywhere from about a $20 to $50 board. If you are anywhere from 100 to 200 lbs, then you will need anywhere from about a $50 to $100 board.

This should give you an idea, of how much to pay for your board.
