I'm back again with some skateboard deals :D Again with these, they are more for beginners or like myself, those getting back into it, to see if they have it (or any of it left, h… Read more
Hi, How do any of the ones on offer at Skatehut compare to the ones in this OP please as a beginner board for a 10yo? The ones in the sale are here https://www.skatehut.co.uk/skateboards/complete-skateboards?product_list_order=price_asc
In my mind cliche is the better brand, that setup also has good trucks (tensor) all the others are cheap i believe, its also the smallest deck, 7.35" is the width of the deck, you definitely wouldn't want more for an 8 year old, it will be heavier and awkward. Recommending 8" decks for a 7 year old? sounds insane to me.
Would agree. Some of the cheap boards can be flimsy and actually quite heavy. If they are particually small, maybe look into 7.5" options, although many kids are riding 8" wide boards just fine nowadays :)
Heya, I check every few days to see what's dropped and honestly haven't seen the prices jump. The best prices that I've seen on beginner completes recently was probababy the Blueprint ones, which were more expensive. I'd put the Heart Supply ones as better value overall. Can't be 100% on every one in the list, but usually I'd post if I spotted it. The HS Rasta is £54.50 elsewhere and £43.99 here, so around a 19% saving and the cheapest around. I still think it's a worthy shout for those looking. Route One had some good offers back in August, but not the HS completes Obviously if you're sure you saw them at that price, fair enough. I could have missed them :) Lowest prices anywhere by a good amount, mind.
The wider they are the more stable they are but they then become harder to do tricks on, the 7.75 or 8's here would be fine for a 7+ year old, its far more important to get a reasonably decent board like these rather than a toy skateboard that you find in some places. Remember to get a skate helmet and perhaps some knee/elbow/wrist pads, they will fall but that's all part of the sport and you learn just as much if not more from your failures in skateboarding.
