Skateboards for kids – The right choice is crucial!

In the website category “skate”, you will find a sub-category for Kids Skateboard Completes. All skateboards in this section are shorter and more narrow than a “standard” skateboard, making them perfect for smaller skaters with a height of about 1,30m. If you’re shopping for a skater who is a little taller than this, check out our normal-sized complete skateboards.

Why is a complete skateboard a good start for young skaters?

The complete skateboards in our shop give you the certainty that all components of the skateboard are optimally fitted and professionally assembled. A complete skateboard is a bit more complex than it may seem at first glance. If you’re not sure of which component sizes or styles to choose, a complete skateboard will take all the guesswork out of the purchase. A complete skateboard for kids will be designed for children to easily control as well as foster their learning and progression. This not only makes skateboarding more fun, but also more safe.

What makes skateboard completes for kids different from others?

Our skateboard completes for kids are easier to control for children 1.30m and under than a full-sized complete skateboard for several reasons. Kid-sized completes have a narrow and relatively shorter deck than a standard skateboard. Therefore, the smaller overall size makes them easier to turn, learn tricks, and it offers a more suitable standing surface for smaller feet.

The wheels used on children’s completes are also usually softer than a standard wheel hardness. As a new skater, one is primarily focused on learning to ride, cruise, and turn the board with confidence. Softer wheels make this much easier due to the increased grip and smoother ride that they provide, as well as the fact that they are much more ideal for rougher asphalt surfaces. This is especially important for skaters who don’t have a beautiful skatepark next door! Even on smooth concrete, softer wheels will offer more grip and a smooth, stable ride.

The trucks used with kids boards are durable and generally just as high-quality as the premium trucks of larger boards. However, they are generally equipped with soft bushings for easy and responsive turns. This is critical because the turning response of the skateboard is completely reliant on the weight of the skater. For young skaters who don’t weigh much, they will need soft bushings to steer properly. In addition, the nut found in the center of the axle (kingpin nut), will be tightened or loosened by the skater to adjust the steering response to their liking. Please keep in mind that even when you have a complete, adjusting this kingpin nut to the skater’s desired steering response is necessary and requires a simple wrench tool.

Why should I buy a complete skateboard from an actual skate shop?

You may have seen complete skateboards for kids on sale at large department stores or malls. The difference between these skateboards and what we sell is best described by a classic rule – you get what you pay for. The skateboards found in department stores are truly, noticeably lower quality than the skateboards found in our shop. These skateboards will not last close to as long as what is sold in our shop or be nearly as safe. Our shop only supplies skateboards from established skateboarding brands who ensure premium-quality and even safety in their products. In addition to Titus brand skateboards, you will find skateboards from iconic brands like Powell-Peralta, Creature, Toy Machine, MOB-Skateboards, etc. All kids completes from these brands are built to provide the optimal skateboard for young skaters to learn on. You’ll also find that their skateboard decks are made with seven plies of the best quality wood, offering the same level of performance that their professional skate teams expect from their products.

An important feature of the skate products and components offered in our skateshop is that they are all standardized unless explicitly stated. Whenever two components will be used together, such as the mounting holes on a deck and the mounting holes on a truck, all skateboard components are generally standardized. In our shop, every bearing will fit in every wheel and on every truck axle that you can find on the site. The advantage: All individual components can be replaced should any component of your complete skateboard break. Remember, don’t throw away your whole skateboard just because the wooden deck has broken or gotten old! This actually makes a complete skateboard more sustainable for the environment and also for your wallet. A complete gives you a great base set-up with parts you can use for your next skateboard. If price is a concern, be sure to check out Titus brand complete skateboards which offer the same premium-quality at an affordable price.

Here’s some important tips for caring for your first skateboard and taking your first pushes

There are several things to note about properly caring for your new skateboard so that it stays in the best shape and continues to ride great. Of course, jumps, slides and grinds are a part of everyday life for a skater and that's what skateboards are designed for. Therefore, skateboards are generally pretty tough. However, there are some things that will quickly destroy your skateboard. These things are moisture and sand/dirt. Specifically, the bearings of the skateboard are a critical component to care for. If water or dirt gets its way into the bearings, they will rust and quickly become destroyed and unusable. It’s not just the bearings though. The wooden deck is not waterproof and it will absorb any moisture that it comes in contact with. This will give the skateboard the impression that it is very heavy and it will feel weak and soggy, especially when doing tricks. Avoid these things and you’ll be able to enjoy your skateboard for even more skate sessions!

After a skater feels comfortable standing on their skateboard and they’ve got the hang of turning and riding, most skaters are excited to start learning some tricks. You might even get to this point in the first day of skating! But, how the heck do skaters make the board seemingly “stick to their feet”? The Titus Skateboard Guide can show you some of the basics as well as offer some trick tips. Especially when just getting started, we recommend learning to skate with protection gear. Even though you may have seen older skaters without pads, their experience generally gives them a better ability to assess danger and control their falls better. When children are just starting to skate or especially when venturing out onto the ramps for the first time, pads are highly recommended. We offer a huge selection of premium-quality kids protection gear here: Children’s protection sets. They should also at least have a Kids helmet to keep their head safe.

This should be all you need to know to get started with a complete skateboard for kids. Many skaters remember their first skateboard for the rest of their lives, leading them to a lifelong passion for skateboarding. One thing is for sure, a skateboard certainly guarantees a lot of fun!
