Summer 2020 is the season for custom skateboards. We might say that every summer (because when is it not time to skate) but this one’s different. Seriously, Minneapolis just announced it’s constructing 20 new skateparks this year, skating is confirmed as a special addition to the 2020 (now 2021) Tokyo Olympic Games, and people are desperate to get some fresh air and exercise during a pandemic. So what better way to upgrade your summer than with a custom skateboard?
Spend Your Summer Skating
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or new to the skate world, this summer is the time to get out there. Not only is it one of the more socially distanced sports, but you can use outdoor spaces exclusively and never have to set foot inside. Especially with the uncertainty of a pandemic and anxiety of being in crowded spaces, skating is really the perfect pass time to keep you active, out in the sun, and away from crowds.
Impress With a New Custom Skateboard
Custom skateboards will take your summer to the next level. Whatever Skateboards is a small company dedicated to completely customizable skate products. We know your boards are important to you– they’re a personal investment in something you love. We think you should be in complete control of that kind of purchase. From the specs to the design, you can build your board from scratch and hit the pavement with something that is one of a kind. Our products prioritize quality. You can rest assured that you’re designing something that will last. Our boards are all made with high quality Canadian maple wood and high resolution printing that create a crisp image on a sturdy board built to perform. And we don’t just know this from producing them– we ride our own Whatever skateboards almost every day.
Don’t wait until the season’s over and winter weather starts to hit. Make some fun memories in the sun this summer with a custom skateboard from Whatever Skateboards.
The numbers don’t lie; Americans are spending a lot more time outdoors lately. The pressure from stay-at-home campaigns during the pandemic has roller skates selling out everywhere and people clamoring for creative ways to get some socially distanced sun. “People are fiending to skate,” According to Marshall Reid of All Together Skatepark in a recent Seattle Times article. With streets less crowded and traffic reduced, the timing couldn’t be better to buy new, custom longboards and pick up some new skills with it.
Cruising on Custom Longboards
Whatever Skateboards is one of the only places where you can get a longboard that is entirely your own because YOU design it. You can choose to build the specs individually or pick one of our complete models and customize everything from the deck to the grip tape. Don’t just buy a board this summer; create something that is an expression of your style. Custom longboards are the perfect summer hobby and set of wheels. Whether its for fun or your go-to transportation, your longboard should be a high quality and personal purchase, something that you can love for years. Customization allows you to decide exactly what your board looks and feels like. Our platform is easy to navigate for all levels– from buying your first board to experienced skaters.
Skating During a Pandemic
As always, we want to make sure everyone is staying safe while cruising around this summer. Make sure to give other skaters and pedestrians 10 feet of space and stay aware of your local regulations around masks and recreational spaces. Outdoor activities are one of the easiest ways to have fun this summer, even while some businesses remain closed and large gatherings pose risk. Nows the time to invest in a custom longboard so you can stay active no matter what your summer looks like this year.
Summer is right around the corner which means warm weather, longer days and more time to skate outside. You may have your favorite skate park, shopping center, boulevard or boardwalk but what about creating your own park?! This Summer, we’re looking for people to post the most creative, non-conventional skate trick videos for a chance to win your very own custom skateboard. Here’s how it works:
We want Creative, Never Before Seen Footage!
To clarify, we aren’t seeking videos of kickflip done off a 50 foot house (it would be cool but we don’t want anyone to kill themselves during this competition) we want to see you create funny videos using props from your garage, bedroom, local park etc. Use ladders, chairs, ply wood, trampolines, ANYTHING! The world is your oyster. Find a cool spot in the woods or on abandoned fishing dock. Go explore, or stay in your backyard but wherever you decide to film, be creative! If you need some inspiration, and a good laugh, check out the video from @me_5j
Enter your videos by tagging @whateverskateboards in your caption along with hashtag #whateverbackyardsummer for a chance to win your own custom skateboard. Winners will be selected and reposted on the last day of Summer! GOODLUCK AND HAVE FUN!
