Spot Digger

This app is useful if you are looking for new places to shred. Locations will be marked on a map near your local area. You can also rate the run up and the run down on each spot. There is also another rating for the best time of the day to skate each spot. The only catch is that not all skaters will want to let everyone in on their secret. Those  are still only available by word of mouth.

Skull Candy

Skull Candy has created an app for skaters and snowboarders. This is one of the best skateboarding apps that has the information for each location such as conditions, weather, and ratings, qualifying it on the list of top skateboarding apps. You can also listen to streaming music.  This app is like a skate google map and a radio combined into one!

The School of Skate

If you are looking for a way to up your skills, this is the app for you. Learn tips from pros on how to do tricks. The motto of this site is “Helping the world progress one trick at a time.” We chose this one as one of the top skateboarding apps since we support their motto, and agree with what they are trying to do for the skate community.

Nike SB

The big name Nike has created their own skate app and we are not disappointed. This app helps you connect with skaters from around the world. Upload videos of tricks to share with everyone. Pros also post up challenges for people to respond to. If your trick is sick, you have a big chance to be featured on their app! This is a great way to put yourself out there and to be noticed.

Boarder Lounge

Connect with other skaters through Boarder Lounge to talk about all things related to skating. You can also post videos through this app. This app is like a live skate forum for your phone.


This app is more about entertainment. You can watch the latest and top rated skate videos through this app. Catch up on the latest tricks and contest updates through videos posted by the skate pros.


Our list would not be complete without a skate game. Touch grind makes it on the list of top skateboarding apps since this is the best app skate game out there. This game lets you customize your board, which we are all about. You use your two fingers to skate through the virtual skate park. It is like a virtual tech deck!

We are stoked about these 7 top free skateboarding apps out there that provide an outlet for creativity, community and fun. Hope you all enjoy these apps!

Design Your Own Skateboard Trick? Syrmo Skate App & Trick Tracking Hardware From The Future

The future is here! Syrmo is a new skateboard app and accompanying trick tracking hardware that lets you track and check any of your tricks and locations. Want to design your own skateboard trick? Syrmo is a pad riser approach to a skateboarding “wearable”for your skate, but it comes complete with an app that shows your tricks, check you in, and can auto-edit footage for you. It appears they’ve CNCed their own designs for the riser and have cool little pieces that slide in to track all sorts of skate and trick stats for. They even included a way to 3D replay your tricks!

It pretty much has to be seen to be believed so here’s their gorgeous Kickstarter video…

One of the best features in that demo is the automatic editing of skate vids. Did you just make your own skate trick or come up with a custom skateboard trick? Catch the stats and the 3D replay for sure but if your buddy is filming you through the app it will auto-locate that spot in the skate video and let you add filters or slow mo. This is definitely the best looking skate Kickstarter we’ve seen in a while. It really adds tech + skating to get something new and awesome. Check out some pics of the Syrmo app if you want to drool over the future of skating…

We’re pretty stoked on this; we’d love to see this Syrmo Kickstarter fully funded so we can get the latest and greatest in the future of skate technology. There are still a few days left to go on this Kickstarter so get in there and back it so we can ours! Click here for the Syrmo Kickstarter
