The Best Skateboard for Beginners 2021

December 16, 2020 3 min read

I think we can all agree that 2020 was a year we’d like to leave in the past. 2021 is about starting fresh, and what better way to do that than to start skateboarding?! We believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn how to skate, but with so many different brands and retailers out there, it can be hard to find that perfect beginner skateboard and jump right into skating. Braille is here to help you sort through the unlimited options for starter set-ups by offering our Braille Blank Complete Skateboards as well as our Natural Braille Starter Package!

What is a Braille Blank Complete?

Not up to date on all the skater lingo yet? Don’t worry about it! A Braille Blank Complete skateboard is just that; complete. You’re not buying just a board, or just some trucks and wheels. The Braille Blank Complete comes with a beautiful blank deck which is available in three sizes; 7.75”, 8.0”, and 8.25”. Along with your blank deck, the Braille Blank Complete includes 52mm Braille wheels with Braille bearings, Braille trucks with Braille hardware, and of course some Braille Griptape! 

What is a Braille Starter Package?

This starter package not only comes with a complete skateboard but also a digital download of Skateboarding Made Simple Volume 1. The tutorials included in Skateboarding Made Simple Volume 1 are some of the most in-depth skateboarding tutorials ever made. Not only will you learn the fundamentals of skateboarding, but you’ll have a blast doing it, too! Aaron Kyro has a knack for explaining skateboarding to beginners in a way that guarantees progression, so if you’re new to skateboarding, this is definitely something you’ll want to look into! Along with your Braille Blank Complete and SMS Volume 1, the Natural Braille Starter Package also includes Braille stickers and a Braille poster. It truly is the most affordable way to ride! We made this package with the beginner skater in mind, though it’s perfect for skaters of all skill levels.

What Makes the Braille Blank Complete the Best Skateboard for Beginners in 2021?

We are so confident in our Braille Blank Completes because of the high-quality products we use, and the all-around versatility of each component. First, let’s start with the Braille Blank deck. The Braille Blank is a pro deck made with 7 plies of high-grade Canadian maple. We use U.S glue to ensure those plies stay together no matter how hard you skate. All of our available board sizes are the perfect width for skating street, park, transition, and even vert! No matter how you want to skate it, the Braille Blank pro deck is an all-around amazing choice.
Next, let’s talk about the trucks. Braille trucks are made of aluminum and matched to the decks’ width for the best board feel. We also use capped bushings in our trucks for optimized turning and long-lasting life! Whether you are learning to ollie, or 360-flipping the three-block at the Braille House, these trucks will definitely hold up. Speaking of long-lasting life, our 52mm medium hardness Braille wheels paired with our Braille bearings are designed to ride on all different surface types. Whether you’re skating smooth concrete at the park, rough cement sidewalks, or slippery wooden ramps, our Braille wheels and bearings provide the perfect amount of traction and speed and are built to last.
Last but not least, our medium grit Braille griptape will keep your feet in place while not shredding your shoes too quickly, which is common with higher-grit griptape. It also features our classic “b” logo, which automatically makes the board that much cooler!
