When searching for the perfect gift, it can often be hard to find something that is simultaneously unique yet still relatively affordable and still something which they don’t already have.
These days, there seem to be an endless number of passions, hobbies, and interests, and one which is entirely inaccessible unless you are someone who is involved in it is that of skateboarding. Skateboarders are a creative, expressive, and individual types of people who are dedicated to progressing the sport to as far as they can take it.
So here, for your reading pleasure and, of course, information, are some fabulous birthday gift ideas for that competitive skateboarder in your life.
Obviously, not every skateboarder’s first consideration when heading out for the day is safety, which is why a gift of some protective yet stylish accessories from expert and passionate suppliers such as Triple 8, will both be a fantastically appreciated and thoughtful gift but will perhaps provide them with some safety features that they were not previously privy to.
From knee pads and elbow pads to wrist guards, gloves, and hip protection, you can choose some fantastically stylish and ‘cool’ skateboarding protective wear while at the same time not breaking the proverbial bank.
Footwear is of optimum importance for skateboarders of all ages and at all skill levels, and therefore what better gift for your loved one’s upcoming birthday than a pair of old-school skate shoes.
Vans is the classic brand that skateboarders across the length and breadth of this country and beyond covet, and you can’t go wrong with a classic black and white checkerboard style shoe. With padded heels and collars, the recipient will be both sporting stylish skateboarding shoes and still be protected when they’re skateboarding.
If you are looking to spend a bit more money for the perfect skateboarding gift this year, then why not consider investing in a Go Pro action camera. This way, if you are someone who enjoys watching your loved one enjoying their favorite hobby or even professional activity, you can watch the action from the comfort of your own home.
Capturing winning moves is part and parcel of the desires of a skateboarder, and with a GoPro or similar brand of action camera, they can wear the small device around their neck when they are boarding or else even attach it to their shoe.
Another, admittedly slightly more expensive, birthday gift idea is that of a launch ramp set, which is absolutely certain to put a smile on anyone’s face who is passionate about skateboarding.
The beauty of such a gift is not only will you receive numerous brownie points and ‘street cred’ for the purchase, but you and other loved ones will be happy in the knowledge that the birthday star is practicing their skateboarding moves, jumps, and tricks on a safe and secure ramp. Additionally, this means they will no longer have to trek to their nearest skateboarding park and can instead practice and hone their craft right there in their own backyard.
