Skateboarders Candy Store

I used to ride skateboards as a kid. My skateboard consisted of a piece of wood with metal roller skate wheels screwed into it. We'd FLY down hills in a straight line as fast a we could on these scary contraptions, much to the horror of the neighborhood moms. There was more than one severe case of road rash as a result of these skateboard runs.

One day a kid came along with a new fangled skateboard that had rubber wheels with shock absorbers that allowed for smooth turns. We took turns trying it out and such a skateboard was soon on everyone's Christmas list.

Alas, this occurred shortly before my gang got our driver's licenses and once we were all driving, the skateboards were uncool.

Nowadays skateboards are very sophisticated. My son has a skateboard that costs more than my first used car! All the kids still love the thrill of riding on a skateboard, their tricks these days are way above anything I ever hoped to do on a board when I was a kid. Heck, I'd be afraid to ride one now!

But being the parent of a 13 year old boy, I need to know where he can get the best deal on skateboards and skateboarding gear. is a great place for the kids to get Element Skateboards, Baker Skateboards or Complete Skateboards. They also have all the replacement parts, custom wheels and skateboard decks for the skateboarding aficionado. Check them out.
