Before purchasing a skateboard, you must first understand several important parts of the skateboard:
1. Board surface. The material, size and concavity of the board surface are the most critical.
1. Materials. At present, skateboards are made of various materials, the mainstream is still wood, and maple is the first choice for professional board production. At present, the best skateboard board is Canadian maple, and board friends love to call it “Jiafeng”. The grades classified according to the board are imported plus maple board, domestic plus maple board, and domestic middle maple board. The price also decreases accordingly. It is recommended that beginners choose the domestic Chinese maple board. Because it is both economical and affordable, but also can meet the needs of beginners.
2. In terms of size, it is mainly the width of the board. Beginners should not have any requirements in this regard. If you have to choose, you are advised to use a relatively wider board for beginners, because the wider point is easier to control.
3. There is also the concavity of the board surface. Board friends are used to calling it “foot socket”. Nowadays, the professional boards are all concave boards, that is, when viewed from the side, there is a downward arc between the two bridges. There are deep and shallow foot sockets. It is recommended that beginners choose shallow foot socket boards, which will be more stable when stepping on. Easy to control.
Second, there is also the problem of board layers. For beginners, it is irrelevant. Most boards now have 7 layers. Some Zhongfeng boards are made of 9 layers in order to ensure the strength. It will be heavier. It can be seen from the side of the kanban, the third and fifth layers of the board will be heavier in color because the two layers of boards are laid horizontally. Beginners mainly learn the control board and some of the most basic movements, so there is no need to worry about how many layers and the weight of the board.
Of course, if you have sufficient funds at the time of purchase, it is recommended to choose a board with high strength, good toughness and small weight.
