How To Customize Your Skateboard

There are a lot of questions to be asked when customizing your first skateboard and it can be a pretty intimidating process, but Team Bonzing is here to get you rolling.

Think of it this way, a skateboard is like your body with your arms and legs like the trucks, hands and feet like the wheels and your brain is you having a great time on the board.

Ask yourself these questions before deciding on what customization is best for you:
1. What is most important to you - stability, speed, commuting, tricks
2. Wheels make a difference do you want soft vs. hard
3. Which length is best for what you want - long vs. short board

Let’s choose your new customized board.

Bonzing has really cool decks that are designed by our Team of skateboarders, pick the one you think is just plain cool.

The truck (metal T shaped rods) that attach your wheels to the board, are what allow you to  turn on the board. There are different types of trucks the “standard” is best for flip tricks, and riding bowls.  Reverse Kingpin trucks are better for cruising, commuting, and mountain bombing.

Let’s choose the wheels, they come in all different sizes and colors but generally smaller wheels are better suited for flip tricks and bowl skating.  Larger wheels are better for cruising and commuting.
