Back in the 1950s, surfers decided to make boards with wheels so they could ‘sidewalk surf’ and get a thrill when they weren’t on the waves – and so skateboarding was born. Now one of the most popular extreme sports, there’s a huge selection of shapes, styles and designs to choose from. Enter, Freeride Surf & Skate.

Complete skateboards for NZ thrill seekers
If you’re just getting started on your skateboarding journey, then a skateboard complete is the perfect option for you. When it comes to picking a skateboard, you might be wondering “Should I buy a complete skateboard or build one from scratch?”. The answer is, it totally depends on your needs. Unlike custom made skateboards, a complete is a pre-assembled skateboard that’ll support you as you get used to riding. Hugely popular among new and beginner skaters, they’re the most practical way to start your skateboarding journey. Once you get the hang of things, you’ll start riding with confidence, and be able to figure out what your riding style is, what you enjoy and how to cater to your strengths.
A complete is one of the best and most cost-effective routes to go down when you’re in the process of buying your first skateboard. No need to choose your new skate trucks, deck, bearings, wheels, hardware and grip – because when you invest in a ready-to-ride complete, you’re getting a ready-to-ride skateboard. There are pros and cons to custom-built skateboards and completes, but complete skateboards are designed for new skaters who want to focus on getting familiar with skateboarding and learning the basics.
