I don’t know about you, but when a new year begins I like a make small changes to my look, wardrobe, what I eat, and what I ride! Changing up when I always skate on is important because you never know if that will be the factor of improving tricks, and landing the perfect tre flip. If some of your New Year’s resolutions involved improving your skateboard skills, start with a new clean slate. Customize your own skateboard! Here are some ideas for your new custom skateboard:
Choose Images that make YOU Happy
You will perform better when you are riding on something you have personalized. Especially a skateboard with a design that makes you happy! Maybe it’s your name across the deck that will motivate you to shred harder. Or maybe it’s your icon, or favorite celebrity. Whatever or whoever it is, you can easily upload any design to your deck. You can also add texts and stickers to vamp up your board. Another special touch, it creating your own design or logo. Whenever you design something that is your OWN, you automatically feel a different way about it, compared to buying a basic skateboard brand. Regardless of the design you choose, have fun with it and don’t be afraid to get creative!
Riding on your New Deck
Riding on a brand new deck is more than a feeling. It’s a mentality! There’s something really special about starting over and making new memories on a skateboard. So, if you had some trouble with landing tricks last years, try using a different or new board. Even if it’s just mental, there’s something powerful about starting on a fresh canvas, and in this case, a fresh deck.
