The market seemed to have shifted more towards meeting the skate boarding needs of the generation rather than basketball. Keeping the state of demand in view, a new brand of Nike shoes was designed specially for skate boarding when this product was re-launched in 1998. Based on the purpose of release, this brand was named Nike dunks SB. However, both the sports have a lot in common. Thats the reason collating both the brands at the same time werent much of a trouble as it was already a popular name for basketball in the market. There were some significant changes made for Nike dunks in order to fit the skate boarding culture.
The Element Skate Boards company was created in 1992 by Johnny Schilereff. Coming from a troubled childhood, he aspired to develop a company that intertwined his passion for skateboarding with a positive influence on todays youth. The company was started when Johnny was given the opportunity to take over the failing company, Underworld Element, for which he was currently employed. He viewed the opportunity, as his chance to turn his dream into a reality. With consistent, positive, hard work, he turned the failing company around, and made it what it is today.
The average size board is 7.75, now if your going to be vert skating or getting a great deal of speed (like down hill) it would be better to go with a wider board for stability. And so you dont get speed wabble. So the best thing to do is go look at a couple boards and stand on them to find which is more comfortable for you. My personal favorite for boards is a blank mini logo, I love mini logos. They are great boards. And i also like zeros. They are more expensive boards, but they are very much worth it.
Health and safety is quite crucial for skate boarders because the sport involves rather high speeds and wheels. A good number of injuries that are treated, are usually attributed to either the loss of balance or a stunt gone wrong. For this reason it is very important that you, as a sensible skater don the right protective gear, comprising of a helmet, knee and elbow pads. You could possibly think it looks uncool, however, not being capable to skate thanks to the injuries you might have just sustained.
