Building Your Own Old School Skateboard: A Nostalgic Ride


Skateboarding is not just a sport; it's a culture, a lifestyle, and an art form. For those who appreciate the roots of skateboarding, old school decks are more than just pieces of wood; they're time machines that transport us back to the golden era of the '80s. The charm of old school decks lies in their unique shapes, sizes, and designs that reflect the creativity and rebellious spirit of early skateboarding culture.

Building Your Own Old School Skateboard: A Nostalgic Ride

Skateboarding has evolved tremendously over the years, but there's something undeniably cool about the old school boards that started it all. Whether you're a seasoned pro who's been carving up the streets since the '70s or a newbie with a passion for retro, building your own old school skateboard is a journey worth taking.

The charm of old school skateboards lies in their simplicity and the nostalgia they evoke. These boards remind us of a time when skateboarding was not just a sport but a lifestyle that represented freedom and creativity. Today, we have the opportunity to blend the best of both worlds – the classic designs of the past with the advanced technology of the present.

To start your build, you'll need the basic components: a deck, trucks, wheels, and bearings. The sizes and shapes may differ from the modern boards, giving you a unique riding experience. Old school decks are typically wider, providing stability and a solid platform for cruising and carving. The trucks are robust, the wheels are larger for that smooth glide, and the bearings, while simpler, are just as effective in delivering a seamless ride.

When selecting your deck, consider the width and shape that suit your style. Do you want the responsive agility of a narrower board or the stable, roomy feel of a wider deck? The choice is yours, and the possibilities are endless. Remember, the deck is the soul of your skateboard, so choose one that resonates with your skating spirit.

Assembling your skateboard is like piecing together a puzzle of history. Each component, from the slide rails to the riser pads, tells a story of the skateboarding era it represents. By building your own board, you're not just crafting a means to skate; you're creating a personal tribute to the generations of skaters who paved the way.

So, grab your tools and let's get started on building the ultimate old school shredder. It's not just about reliving the past; it's about taking a piece of it with you as you carve your path into the future of skateboarding. Happy building, and even happier skating!
