All SkateXS Skateboards are designed to offer young skaters the opportunity to develop and learn to their highest potential with the properly sized, lightweight, high performance SkateXS bamboo based skateboard decks.  

The difference in each series comes from the choice of component parts used to complete the board.  

Our Beginner Series is by far our most popular. We use slightly softer wheels on the beginner which makes for smoother riding on a the widest variety of neighborhood surfaces while remaining fully capable at the skatepark. As the beginner uses all in-house components, including our hollow kingpin responsive trucks, we are able to offer the board at an incredibly good value for its features. 

The Advanced and Pro are designed for the skater who anticipates doing most of their skating at the skatepark. We use harder durometer wheels on these boards, so they will roll a bit faster than the Beginner series. We are also using the top brand name components in skateboarding on these boards.

The Advanced Series Skateboards features Thunder Trucks, Bones 100s Wheels and Mini-Logo Bearings. 

The Pro Series utilizes the same Thunder Trucks, but includes upgraded Bones Bushings for an easier to maneuver board. We then use Spitfire Wheels and Bones Reds Bearings for a top notch competition ready skateboard.

Skateboarders absolutely enjoy swapping out and/or upgrading parts over time.

All SkateXS skateboards can have their parts swapped or upgraded, typically with any leading brand of wheels, bearings or bushings you might find at your local skate shop. 

We also offer the option to immediately upgrade the bushings in our Beginner and Advanced with Bones Bushings (already installed on the Pro).

All boards also have the option to ship with Ricta Cloud Wheels as replacements or spares for skater's dealing with especially rough surfaces.

Weight should be the primary driver to determine the board size rather than age.

Our graphical size chart shows the age segments along with an average weight ranger for that age group.

If your child's weight falls outside their age range, just follow the size recommendations for their weight.

Please note, even our smallest board can easily support the weight of adult size skater. Sizing recommendations are for the benefit of the skater finding a board that is an appropriate size to provide stability while remaining easily maneuverable.

If your skater is about to cross into the next size, by all means moving up a size is a reasonable option.
