Skateboarding is an extension of land surfing. Skateboarding offers more freedom than surfing, which is limited by climate and geography. Therefore, it is very popular with young people in the United States and quickly swept the world. Skateboarding has grown since then.

Since skateboarding was born to satisfy people's desire to enjoy the thrill of surfing on land, skateboarding culture in the 1970s had a strong surfing imprint, and even many skate parks built simulated surf terrains that were more suitable for skateboarding.

In this way, skateboarding and surfing are completely separated, and skateboarders devote themselves to skateboarding, forming their own language, skills, clothing style and music preferences.

Learn about the structure of each part of the skateboard.

1. Sandpaper.

The surface is rough, the back is glued to the board surface, and the sandpaper has evenly dispersed small holes, in order to make the sandpaper and the board surface better fit and prevent the generation of air bubbles.

Sandpaper keeps the shoe on the skateboard and adds friction. To control the skateboard, in the later pursuit of skateboarding skills, sandpaper played a very key role.

2. Board surface.

Including head, tail and foot sockets. The deck is the obvious constituent board and plays an important role in skateboarding. Several layers of wood chips are pressed on each board surface.

3. Stand.

The things that connect the deck to the wheels are an important part of the skateboard. It is the most durable part on a skateboard.

There is PU in the bracket, and there is a light-colored Microsoft irregular thing in the middle of the bracket. This thing is mainly to control the limit of the front and rear movement of the skateboard.

There are also side mothers, which are screws at both ends of the bracket, used to fix the part that cannot be separated from the bracket when the wheel slides.

4. Bridge nails.

A total of eight, the connector between the board and the bracket.

5. Wheels.

It's an underrated part of skateboarding, but the wheels define the ride.

How to maintain the skateboard in the later stage?

1. Skateboards must not come into contact with water. If water enters accidentally, first remove the wheel, then take out the bearing, wipe it with a dry towel, and then dry it with a hair dryer.

Definitely not! Take it out in the sun, water-soaked boards will crack or delaminate in the sun.

2. After the skill is proficient, you can try to adjust the tightness of the bridge you like, and replace the wheels as needed.

3. When skateboarding, try not to let the sandpaper get wet, which will easily reduce friction.

4. It is recommended to check the screws regularly and replace the deformed screws to prolong the service life of the skateboard and reduce the risk when playing the board.

5. Avoid water as much as possible. When lubricating the bearing, the life of the bearing can be extended.

Skateboarding is a sport that resonates with life, not just a sport, but a life.
