“Life is a lot like skateboarding.” – lil Wayne “I consider skateboarding an art form, a lifestyle and a sport. ‘Action sport’ would be the least offensive categorization.” – Tony Hawk “Skateboarding teaches you how to take a fall properly.

Custom Skateboard Quote Designing Tips

So when designing your custom skateboard, there are a few things to keep in mind. When you design the board, always keep in mind the trucks on the bottom side of the board. The trucks will be a part of the design once it is installed, unless this is a board that will hang on your wall. So… if you are putting a skateboarding quotes on the board, make sure it is on either sides of the trucks or in-between the four indicated dots on the template. Or else, you may get a board that looks funked up.

Some Short Skateboard Quotes

You could always put a long skateboard quote on the board, but sometimes a shorter one will do. Shorter skateboard quotes are easier to incorporate in to the design when creating a custom skateboard. With less words, you can play with the text size and placement of the text. This makes it easier to add style to your design and helps with creating a bold impact. Here are some short skateboarding quotes that are good for this type of custom skateboard design. “Skate or Die”, “Keep on Rolling”, “Go Skate Day”.

The base unit for BLOCK Risers are the original BettyBOX. The BettyBOX is a tough 3/8″ riser unit made to fit on any truck setup. If you’re looking for light, durable skateboard risers the BettyBOX is designed to minimize the riser weight while still providing a stable rise usable by even professional downhill longboarders.

Unlike most skateboard risers the entire BLOCK Riser BettyBOX series is also able to be used as longboard risers, even with drop through trucks.

With the GoBLOCK, you can add an extra feature to your custom skateboard. The GoBLOCK adds a GoPro camera mount feature to your riser. The design lets you install the camera in a spot that is out of the way from your feet, both when mounted above and below the deck. With vibration restraints and a secure hold, the GoBLOCK will help you capture smooth skateboard footage. Its the most useful skateboard riser we’ve ever seen. Combine with the soft durometer BLOCK Riser Pads to get good footy even over sidewalk cracks. The GoPro attachment easily locks into the BettyBOX housing. so you can attach and detach your GoPro easily.

The StashBLOCK has a secret compartment that slides in and locks into the base BLOCK Risers BettyBOX. The box is perfect for storing keys and small items that you might need to bring along on the ride but don’t want to get mangled. If you hate skating with stuff in your pockets the StashBLOCK locks in securely and doesn’t fall out while you’re out cruising or ripping. Not too big and not too small the StashBLOCK is the perfect size.

Looking For More BLOCK Riser Blocks?

The latest addition from BLOCK Risers includes a GoPro light mount to give you an option of a bottom mounted light or a top mounted light that help you avoid cracks and stack crazy clips at night. Mix and match your BLOCK Risers boxes, both straight and wedge risers, and find your style.

Custom Skateboard Features

It is the details that count, and with these innovative BLOCK Risers, you have the option to upgrade your custom skateboard to get the best ride. They come in 5 bright colors of red, green, blue, purple, and black.

I’m Buying a Gift, What’s a Riser?

Risers are slab of durable material that is screwed between the skateboard deck and the skateboard trucks. They help the skateboard “rise” up a little and are useful when you want to use larger wheels without getting wheelbite or you have a skateboard that sits too low to the ground. They can also help reduce chatter and rumbling when going at higher speeds or skating on harder wheels. You can also use them to get a change in your pushing and carving. Most risers are flat though BLOCK Risers offers both flat and wedge. Typically skateboard risers are simple pieces of high durometer plastic. The difference with BLOCK Risers is their innovative design that allows you to actually use the riser for multiple purposes other than just additional height.

Ahhh That Brand New Custom Skateboard Smell

There’s just nothing quite like that new custom skateboard smell.  Today we got one of our own designs printed on a Perfecto 39 for some serious downhill cruising, and I have to say it came out COMPLETELY AWESOME.  Snapped a couple photos of this beauty before and after putting the trucks on.

Custom Whatever Longboard (Perfecto 39)

How to Create This Custom Skateboard (With Our Whatever Skateboard Design App):

This deck was designed here on the site a couple weeks ago with our board designer app. It took about 15 minutes playing around with settings and effects. Here’s the steps I used:

  1. Backgound (Step 1): using the circuitry background from the stock library in the design app
  2. Upload Images (step 2): uploaded a color paint splatter image found online and the One Giant Media “OG” logo in black and white
  3. Set Some Blend Modes (Optional, While Adjusting any Image): setting the blend mode in the “cool effects” panel on the OG logo and splatter to different options until it looked like this.  Blend modes allow the images to be similar to transparent, but with different modes that make the colors mix in interesting ways.
  4. Added Text (Step 3): “Whatever” Text at bottom

I have to say the pictures don’t do the super crisp and vibrant print justice but it is SO clean with such good resolution the whole image really pops and the board looks amazing.

Here’s a link to this OG skateboard design if you’d like to try to customize it, change it (edit the text to your own or whatever), add to it, or just buy this sweet deck as is – WHATEVER!
