Choosing the right Skateboard
It’s easy to be seduced by these cheap £20 to £30 skateboards online. It’s a plank of wood with wheels on it, right? How can they be so different?
Well, there are a few things to consider when buying a new skateboard. Firstly, what is important to you? Is it a cool graphic? Quick wheels? A nice pop for ollies? Because skateboarding is quite a versatile activity there might be a certain style that suits you.
Do you have a skatepark nearby? Will you be just cruising round the streets? Perhaps you just want to learn tricks in your garage? Or maybe it’s a bit of everything.
What we will not do, here at Sk8 or Die, is get you to part with your hard earned money for something you’re not going to love. That is why we have a short list of recommended skateboards for you and all less than £100 and with free delivery in the UK.
Tony Hawk’s own brand Birdhouse is one of the top brands Sk8 or Die stocks and can ship for free within the UK.
Graphics on the decks vary from classic monstrous designs, with the well known bird skull to more bold simple and understated designs. These Birdhouse stage 3 complete skateboards are £84.99. It would be difficult, maybe impossible, to find better quality for less. When you give the wheels a spin the bearings won’t let you down. Decent quality trucks offer good control.
The Birdhouse Stage 3 also offer a range of widths from 7.75″ to 8.125″.
Birdhouse Stage 3 skateboards have proved a hit with the girls, especially as Birdhouse pro Lizzie Armanto has her own range of signature completes. Each one with a very cool design. See her in action here.
Powell Peralta / Mini Logo
The only 2 things that separate the Powell Peralta and Mini Logo completes is the name and a fiver.
I suppose there is also the identifiable graphics too. Either way both brands offer a fantastic complete skateboard that you can buy through Sk8 or Die and get free delivery to boot.
The Powell completes are decorated with the well-known graphics like Ratbones, the Vallely elephant, Cab’s dragon and the Ripper. The Mini Logo completes come in plain colours or nature images.
Both have Mini Logo trucks and the excellent Mini Logo bearings which are great spinners.
Powell Peralta and Mini Logo both come in sizes up to the wider 8.25″ which is perfect for bigger kids and adults.
Sk8 or Die recommends Birdhouse, Powell Peralta, and Mini Logo completes as best value for money for quality completes, low prices and free UK delivery.
That’s not to say the other brands aren’t just as good. Complete skateboards by REAL, Creature, Santa Cruz, Anti-Hero, Chocolate, Girl, Primitive, DGK, Zero, Flip, Jart Plan B to name just a few of the ones we stock, are all pro names that offer great completes for under £100. To add, all these complete skateboards qualify for free delivery in the UK. Check the site for these fantastic completes and remember, free delivery on all orders over £70.
