OXELO

Our urban sports brand offers expert advice for your skating.

You should choose your skateboard based on your standard: novice, intermediate or expert. There's a whole range of skateboards out there, from beginner boards for younger kids to technical boards for old hands.

 

1. YOUR STANDARD

Oxelo offers three types of skateboard depending on your skill level:

2. BEGINNERS' SKATEBOARDS (FOR YOUNGSTERS)

PLAY 3 skateboard

This board is slightly smaller in size and the slanted bearings limit the speed to reduce the risk of falling off – perfect for children aged between four and seven years who want to learn to balance.

MID 3 beginners' skateboard

The steering components (trucks, wheels and bearings) on this skateboard improve the sturdiness, glide and ease of handling. Get it for kids aged four to 10 who want to learn to skate, turn and do a few tricks.

 

3. TECHNICAL SKATEBOARDS

MID 5 skateboard

This board is sturdy so that your child can nail their first tricks. It’s aimed at kids over 10 who are intermediates and learning to ride in a skate park.

TEAM skateboard

This skateboard is dynamic, fast, manoeuvrable and allows riders to perform an array of tricks, so buy it for teenagers and adults who have more experience.

Falling over is a normal part of learning to skate. If you want to prevent injury, it's best to wear a helmet and protective pads
