It’s usually around the ages 10-13 when kids start getting all riled up about having their own skateboards and most parents are more than happy to oblige and get their kid a brand new skateboard. Skating is a great way for kids to go out and enjoy themselves and while they’re at it, they’re getting some much needed exercise as well. Besides, what parent won’t be proud of their kid once they learn all the awesome moves that take years to perfect?
All that is great but a bit farfetched to talk about before your child has even got their first skateboard. However, what most people don’t know is that when you order a skateboard online, you’ll receive it in a box and it’s going to need assembling. Of course, if you buy it from a sports store, they’ll assemble it for you before they place it on the counter but the fact of the matter is that these things don’t come assembled and in some cases, they don’t even come with an instruction manual on how to assemble them.
Sometimes you can even buy your skateboard piece by piece and end up putting together a completely customized skateboard of your own, which is an exciting thing to do, even as a beginner. At Thrill Appeal, you’ll find the most comprehensive guide to assembling your own skateboard at home whether it’s a Christmas present for your kid, or even a new skateboard that you want to build. Of course, it’s not hard to figure out how to build a skateboard by yourself but we really recommend following the guide just so you put everything together the best that you can.
