A Skateboard is a Simple Machine, isn’t it?
The correct answer is: not really. Basically a skateboard is a flat surface (the deck), to which two pairs of rollers are attached underneath (the trucks, bearings, axles and wheels). You put one foot on the deck, push with your other foot, and the wheels roll you away from where you started. Sounds simple, but the components are quite variable. Ideally the deck, the trucks, and the wheels should all blend in design to make the kind of board you want. If you know all this already, you can talk to the staff at Skaters about what you want and they can build it. If you don’t know all this, you should listen to the staff at Skaters so they can put together the best board for you. The variety of the inventory allows for lots of choices.
Snowboards and All the Fixings
For the winter season, Skaters has a wide variety of snowboards for sale, principally made by Burton and Ride, two of the premier names in the sport. The shop also carries bindings, boots, goggles, gloves and mitts, ski pants, sweaters, jackets, and all of the other paraphernalia that go into gracefully, handsomely, and successfully gliding down mountain slopes. They also have trained technicians who can properly fit the garments and put all of the equipment together in safe working order.
Shoes, Shoes, and More Shoes
In addition to boards, Skaters has an array of shoes that complement its other offerings. With names like Lakai Limited, Circa, Emerica, Supra, and Vans the ground is covered, as it were. Skaters has been in business since 1982, during which time it has seen much of the history of boarding–both skate and snow–so you can rely on their expertise.
