Pick The Ultimate Skateboard Quote

Skateboarding is a lifestyle. It has transcended the concrete bowls into its own culture with fashion, entertainment, and super stars. A lot of inspiration as risen out of the world of skateboarding, and we can learn some things from the big skate stars that have helped skateboarding evolve over the years. Here are some inspirational skateboard quotes to feed your need to skate, and to help you get started on creating a custom skateboard with your own skateboarding quotes!

Classic Skateboard Quotes

Here is a collection of some memorable skateboarding quotes from some skaters.

“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. If you try to kickflip down some stairs, it might take you thirty tries – and you just learn how to take a tumble out of it without getting hurt.” – Bam Margera “My whole life has been the skate life. I don’t really remember doing anything besides skateboarding.” – Ryan Sheckler “When I was a kid, everywhere I went people said I should be a model, but I was more into skateboarding.” – Daria Werbowy  

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”.

A solid product in its own right, the BettyBOX really shines when used as intended and combined with the rest of the BLOCK Riser setups. Unlike most skateboard risers the entire BLOCK Riser BettyBOX series is also able to be used as longboard risers, even with drop through trucks.

BLOCK Risers GoPro Red BLOCK Risers GoPro Purple

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.

StashBLOCK Drawer Block Risers

BLOCK Risers StashBLOCK BLOCK Risers StashBLOCK 2

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 entire premise behind BLOCK Risers is to keep adding new blocks and there are no signs of stopping. 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.
