Free Skateboard Contests

Online free skateboard contests list

By

Free skateboards are tough to come by, so I've collected a list here of sites that give away free skateboards. Most of these sites have monthly free skateboard contests that you can sign up for, or some other way to win a free skateboard. If you know of another site giving away free skateboards, please e-mail me and let me know!

Element Search + Win

Free Skateboards - Element Skateboards
Element Skateboards

This is a weird idea, but it has the potential to get you some free Element skateboard gear. You simply go to this website, and download a free Element search engine bar for your internet web browser. Then, any time you do a search using the bar you downloaded, you earn points that you can spend towards skateboards and other Element skateboard gear. The search results are from Google and Ask.com. I have no idea how many points you have to earn before you get something for free, but I'm guessing you need A LOT.

Free Independent Trucks

Sign up for the Independent trucks newsletter, and sign up to win a set of 149 Mark II Silver trucks.  They promise not to mess with your info, of sell it, or give it away.

All you gotta do is sign up for their monthly free skateboard givaway!

How 2 Skate Giveaway

Alright, I think this one looks pretty sketchy. It might not be legitimate at all - you might just be signing up for spam mail! Here's what they say-

"In our first give-away, we are going to give away a $25 gift certificate in an online skateshop. $25 to spend on whatever items you prefer. A new deck, new bearings, some slick wheels, a cool shirt or a hat, the choice if yours"

If you want to risk it - go to the site and see!

At the time I type this, Black Label is offering the chance to win free stuff if you register for their newsletter, and if you get a picture of yourself with riding a board with Hensley on it, or with one of his stickers - something like that.

5boro.com offers a chance to win a skateboard, if you fillout thier survey.  Not a bad deal, and they SHOULDN'T sell you info to anyone.  At least that's what you hope!

Free Skateboard from Twitter

Twitter Win Skate Stuff
Twitter

This is a contest put together by subpublic.com. They want to give away skateboard gear every week, to help skate brands get exposure, and to give stuff to readers like you! Here's how to sign up:

  1. First you have to sign up with Twitter.com
  2. Go to the winskatestuff page and click 'follow'
  3. Tweet this phrase: "I've entered to win a pro skate deck from Bacon Skateboards. You can too - just follow @winskatestuff and retweet this!"
  4. Check the winfreeskatestuff page on Wednesday at 7 PM (PDT). They will post a question about a video, and the first person posting the correct answer on the video's wall wins the skate gear.

In effect, you have to provide advertising for Twitter to try and win, but if you win it might be worth it!
