Default Re: Help With Skateboard Purchase

Hmm...where I'm from, a good skateboard costs a whole lot more than that. It's about $55-$75 for the deck itself, and then with everything else added (trucks, wheels, bearings, grip tape...) it comes to around $120.

I've seen some skateboards for sale at the local supermarket for around $50, but the decks were warped, the wheels were a squishy rubber, and the trucks were plastic. DON'T get one of those! If she's 11 and serious about it, get her something that isn't going to break while she's riding. Quality quality quality!
