Buy a New Board, Upgrade Yours, or Tune It Up - Just Get Out And Ride!

By April 25, 2013

Follow me on:

Steve Cave and Dave Dormaier working on skateboardsSpring has sprung, and skaters are coming out to enjoy the sun! A lot of you are looking for a new skateboard for this season, or to upgrade the board you have. Check out my article, Build Your Own Pro Grade Skateboard, and get some ideas for your new board, or what parts to upgrade. Upgrading can be as simple as buying a new set of wheels, or new bearings!

And if you want a cheap and simple way to tune up your skateboard, think about buying a new set of bushings. They're cheaper, and will make your skateboard ride like new. If youve become a veteran skateboarder, you might want some softer bushings. Or, if you prefer to put more weight into your turns, you might want some stiffer ones. Check out How to Replace Your Bushings for simple instructions.

And if you don't want to spend any money at all (understandable), you can always simply clean your bearings, tighten those trucks, and hit the streets!
