We met Richie in Long Beach last year and he’s truly a cool and interesting guy to hang out with. Check out one of Richie Jackson’s more famous video parts. We’ll let the video and steez do the talking, as Richie’s style is so unique, nothing else need be said.
and here’s some of our favorite Richie Jackson Instagram clips (must follow):
Here is your daily dose of inspiration. 9 year-old Sky Brown is one of the youngest pro skaters in the world whose dream is to compete in the X Games. Sky is a constant reminder that with the right attitude, you can do anything and it’s OK to scare yourself sometimes.
“Be brave, be strong, have fun and do it because you love it.”- Sky Brown
In this video from VL skate, they outline the ten things every beginner skater should know how to do well. This list of things may seem like it should go without saying, but many new skaters who pick up a board and immediately try to do tricks without a proper foundation will find that it is a lot harder to improve and move on to more advanced tricks down the road. If you are a beginner you want to listen and make sure you have these ten fundamentals down before you move on to the tougher stuff!
These days, some of the best skateboarders in the world are below the age of 20. Kids are stepping on their first boards at 5 and getting sponsors at the young age of 12. What better way to introduce your young one to skating than with a board designed especially for him or her. With Whatever you can design and order skateboards for kids for their next birthday, special occasion, or just because. We offer street and longboards in a variety of different sizes as well as trucks, wheels, and grip tape to complete your board. What better surprise for a kid than receiving a brand new board customized just how they want it.
There are endless benefits to skateboards for kids. Introducing your child to skating means introducing them to a whole new world. The main benefit of skateboarding for kids is that it gets them outside and active. When they’re stoked about boarding, they’ll want to get out and skate as much as possible. This is good not only for their physical health but also their mental health. Another awesome benefit of getting your kid on a skateboard is the close-knit community that comes with the sport. Friendships are a key part of a young person’s life, from childhood to teenage years, and by encouraging your kid to join in on the skating community you are helping to cultivate many friendships to come.
The coolest part about the skateboards we offer for kids at Whatever is that they can choose their own graphic or text to put on the deck. Whether they have their own design or photo in mind or want to browse our extensive online library of free premium options, they’ll be sure to end up with a board they can’t wait to show off at the skate park.
