What is a skateboard
A skateboard is usually made of a specially designed 7-ply maple plywood. The trucks are mounted on the underside of the skateboard and keep your skateboard wheels and bearings attached to the skateboard and provide with turning and grinds for more advanced skateboarders. There are 4 wheels attached to a skateboard made from polyurethane. Soft wheels are best for cruising, transportation and longboarding. Medium durometer wheels are great for beginners and for street skating on rough surfaces.
A skateboarder moves by pushing with one foot and other foot balanced on the skateboard or by pumping one’s legs in bowls or halfpipes. A skateboarder is typically more comfortable by pushing with their back foot.
The two main types of skateboards are shortboards and longboards. Shortboards have a shape, concave and heightened nose an tail which is all necessary to perform tricks. Longboards are made for longer and faster rides such as cruising and racing.
