In the vast universe of extreme sports, few have captured the essence of freedom and personal expression quite like skateboarding. This sport, born on the streets and beaches of California, has become a global icon, an art that combines creativity, skill, and a profound connection with the asphalt beneath us.

Skateboarding is not just a sport; it's a way of life. The skateboard is the extension of your ideas, your dreams, and your emotions. It's your canvas on which you paint your movements, your means of transportation through the urban landscape, or the spark of your imagination on a skatepark ramp.

Beyond the Classics: Waveboarding for a New Wave of Fun

The world of skateboarding offers a variety of unique experiences, and waveboarding is an exciting addition to this list. This fun and versatile board sport brings the energy of surfing directly to city streets. In waveboarding, riders use a special board called waveboard, also known as a caster board or vigorboard.

Waveboard or Casterboard

Some surfers use waveboarding to stay in shape during the off-season, keeping their passion for surfing alive. But waveboarding is not just for experienced surfers; it can be enjoyed by people of all ages and is a fun way to improve balance and stay active.

Thanks to the unique design with two wheels, the possibilities are endless. Waveboards can be used as a means of transportation for daily commutes, for street carving, or to try out some spectacular tricks. So, if you're looking for a unique and dynamic skateboarding experience, waveboarding might be exactly what you need.

The Essential Parts of a Skateboard

Skateboards are wonderful machines of creativity and adrenaline, and every skateboard has a similar structure, composed of the following key components: deck, trucks, wheels, bearings, hardware, and grip tape.

Skateboard Decks

Skateboard Decks

The deck is the beating heart of the skateboard. Made from seven layers of sturdy maple wood, this component is the central element upon which to build your skills. The shape of the deck defines its character and your riding style. Explore the different shapes available in our skateboard deck section.

Skateboard Trucks

Skateboard Trucks

The trucks are the metal joints of the skateboard that connect the wheels to the deck. Comprising a hanger where the wheels are attached and a baseplate that connects to the deck, the truck is what allows your skateboard to steer with agility. Choose from a variety of trucks available in our skateboard shop.

Skateboard Wheels

Skateboard Wheels

Skateboard wheels are typically made of urethane and are available in various hardness levels, widths, and sizes. These wheels determine how your skateboard performs on the road. At Xtreme's skate shop, you can find the wheels that best suit your skateboarding style.

Skateboard Bearings

Skateboard Bearings

Bearings are small yet crucial components that allow the wheels to spin freely. With various models of skateboard bearings to choose from, make sure to find the ones that meet your needs in our dedicated skateboard bearings section.

Skateboard Hardware (Mounting Kit)

Skateboard Hardware

The mounting kit consists of essential screws and nuts for assembling the various parts of the skateboard. Ensure you have the right kit for your skateboard and securely put everything together. Explore the mounting kits available in our dedicated skateboard hardware section.

Skateboard Griptape

Skateboard Griptape

Griptape is an adhesive tape similar to sandpaper that is applied to the top of the deck. It provides the necessary grip to perform tricks and maneuvers successfully.
Discover the fantastic and colorful griptape from top brands available at Xtreme Skate Shop.

Skateboard Truck Bushings

Skateboard Truck Bushings

Bushings, also known as cushions, are small urethane rubber bushings essential for skateboard control. These components, mounted inside the trucks, influence your skateboard's turning ability.

When you purchase a new set of trucks or a pre-assembled skateboard, you'll find suitable bushings already installed. However, you have the option to customize your riding experience by choosing harder, softer, or specially shaped bushings to match your style.

At Xtreme, we offer a wide selection of skateboard truck bushings from top brands. Take a look and find the perfect ones for you.

Riser Pads and Shock Pads: Add Comfort and Control

Riser pads and shock pads are components that can be mounted between the truck baseplate and the skateboard deck, if desired.

  • Riser Pads: These are elevators that increase the height of the trucks. They are useful when you want to mount larger wheels without them touching the deck.
  • Shock Pads: Shock pads are thinner and serve as shock absorbers. They are mounted between the truck and the deck to absorb impacts and make your landings smoother. They are ideal for those seeking a more comfortable riding experience.

Both of these components are optional and provide a way to further customize your skateboard. Find high-quality riser pads and shock pads at Xtreme and discover how to enhance your comfort and control while riding.

Your Safety Comes First

In the world of skateboarding, safety is a fundamental value. To ensure safe and enjoyable practice, it is essential to invest in proper protective gear.

Skateboard Protection Sets

Skateboard Protection Sets

Protection sets include elbow pads, knee pads, and wrist guards, essential for protecting your joints and wrists during your skateboarding sessions.

Elbow and knee pads offer crucial protection in case of falls, absorbing impacts and reducing the risk of injuries. Wrist guards protect your wrists, which are often one of the most vulnerable areas in a fall.

Remember, wearing the protection set not only helps you avoid injuries but also provides you with the peace of mind needed to experiment with new tricks and improve your skills. At Xtreme, we offer a wide selection of high-quality protection sets designed specifically for skaters. Visit our dedicated section and invest in your safety.

Skateboard Helmets

In the world of skateboarding, your head is the most important thing to protect. That's why skateboard helmets are essential for your safety. A quality helmet can make the difference between a harmless fall and a serious injury.

Skateboard helmets are specially designed to provide maximum protection to your head during skateboarding sessions. They are made with impact-resistant materials and often have an aerodynamic design that ensures maximum comfort and stability.

Wearing a skateboard helmet is not only a wise choice but also a sign of responsibility towards yourself and the other skaters around you. At Xtreme, you can find a wide range of high-quality skateboard helmets designed to protect your head while you have fun on your board.
