Skateboarding has become a popular extreme sport that is far removed from its days in the underground. Skateboarding is now part of mainstream culture with all aspects of the skating lifestyle infiltrating our everyday lives. From Tony Hawk computer games to The Simpsons movie it has become part of popular culture. One of the big success stories of skateboarding has been the transition of skate clothing brands into high street stores.
Are you an adult who has a passion for professional skateboarding? For so long, this has been largely considered a youth sport only. Those times are past now that the original skateboarders, the baby boomers, have grown up. Skateboarding is the sort of thing that one has to invest years into to become really good at it. After such an investment of time, it’s not something that you can just put behind you. Thus, today we have a world full of skateboarders over the age of twenty-one.
When it comes to skateboarding, fashion is just as important as the skills you apply in the sport and this is why you have to get the right skate clothing. The clothes you wear represent the type of skater you are. There are various options to choose from when it comes to the kind of clothes a skater wears depending on the kind of image you want to portray.
If you’re serious about having good, safe fun skateboarding, then you need to buy the best skateboard that you can afford. However, you can skimp a bit on what you want to wear while riding on your pricey skateboard. Depending on where you live, you may have to wear some protective gear before you can get on your board.
Great skater brands include but are not limited to the following: Zoo York, Element, Etnies, Vox, Ipath, Vans and DC. These are just a few popular brands. Skate shoes are made with a heavier non-slip grip sole, designed to help the skater balance and stay on the board. These shoes are also reinforced at the seams. The manufacturer knows the people wearing these shoes need them to withstand impact, and wear and tear.
