Beginner Skateboards: Find the Best Skateboard for Beginners

Finding the best skateboard for beginners can seem like a daunting task.  Lucky for you, at Magneto we specialize in beginner skateboards and are here to help you choose.  


Good skateboards for beginners will feature three main components:  stiff flexibility, soft, urethane wheels, and premium quality materials throughout the board.  There are four different types of skateboards we designed for first-timers, and all feature these three pillars of good skateboards for beginners:

Micro Cruisers
Mini Cruisers
SUV Skateboards
Kids Skateboards


These boards can be used by all ages, however (and needless to say) we designed our Kids Skateboards specifically for children, and recommend either the SUV boards or cruiser boards as the best skateboards for adult beginners.


CRUISER BOARDS

The best cruiser skateboards for beginners are our Micro Cruisers and Mini Cruisers.  Superior than the penny boards (which are made from plastic and have been known to snap in half), our Micro and Mini Cruisers feature a maple wood cruiser deck and urethane cruiser skateboard wheels.  


Micro Cruisers
At 22 inches in length, our Micro Cruisers are the most compact of the Magneto skateboard lineup, making them super portable and perfect for taking anywhere.  

  • 7-ply maple wood deck 
  • 6 inches wide gives ample space to perfect your stance
  • Gravity-cast aluminum trucks for stability while learning
  • Soft, high-rebound urethane wheels grip the road and reduce vibrations

 

Mini Cruisers
Our Mini Cruiser skateboard is one of our best sellers.  At 27.5 inches long and 7.5 inches wide, we created this cruiser board with the everyday skater in mind.  It’s fun, portable, and easily fits into the trunk of your car or under the table at your favorite cafe.

  • 6-ply Canadian maple deck 
  • 7.5 inches wide for lots of surface area to find your stance
  • Gravity-cast aluminum trucks for stability while learning
  • Soft, high-rebound urethane wheels grip the road and reduce vibrations

 

SUV BOARDS - THE “SKATE UTILITY VEHICLE”

We designed this as a beginner’s first skateboard that can do a little bit of everything.  It’s a perfect street cruising skateboard that’s also ideal for skate parks, transitions, street cruising, pump tracks, bowls, and even a bit of downhill skate board riding. You can even use it as a cruiser board to skate your favorite spots. We also included a couple of extra riser pads to prevent wheel bite if you decide you like your trucks on the looser side.

Each of our SUV boards includes a free skate tool.

  • Canadian maple wood deck 
  • 31.5 inches long, and 8.5 inches wide
  • Gravity-cast aluminum trucks for stability while learning
  • Soft, high-rebound urethane wheels grip the road and reduce vibrations
  • Skate board gear (tool) included

  • Canadian maple wood deck 
  • 31.5 inches long, and 8.5 inches wide
  • Gravity-cast aluminum trucks for stability while learning
  • Soft, high-rebound urethane wheels grip the road and reduce vibrations

KIDS SKATEBOARDS

We designed this collection specifically for kids and teens looking for their first beginner skateboards.  Made with Canadian maple, our kids skateboards feature double kicktails that make basic skateboard tricks easy.

  • Canadian maple wood deck 
  • 7.75 inches wide for greater versatility in foot positioning
  • Gravity-cast aluminum trucks for stability while learning
  • Soft, high-rebound urethane wheels grip the road and reduce vibrations
