New to the forum and couldn’t find any specific ‘sticky’ threads regarding this topic. If there is one please send me the link and forgive my ignorance!
I skateboarded a bit with terrible cheap skateboards as a kid and then rollerbladed (aggresive inline) for longer until I quit in my early teens. Roller blading is probably the devils talk here so sorry
For the last few years I’ve watched skateboard videos and had the urge to learn how to skateboard and as I’ve recently turned 29 I don’t want to wait too long until i’m too old.
The problem is I’ll be moving to New Zealand in about 4 or 5 months (time dependant on the COVID situation) so I don’t want to sink lots of money into my first board as it’s highly unlikely i’ll be able to bring it with me.
My main question is would the below be ok for me? I’m 5’11’’, 84kg and have a size 11UK shoe.
I’m mainly interested in flat ground skateboarding for now and skateparks will probably be something in the distant future I can aim for.
And if the above isn’t suitable then does anyone have any good suggestions on brand, size, equipment etc.? Approx. £40ish seems reasonable if I have to get rid of the board or if I somehow give up in a months time
Thanks for the help and I’d appreciate any other advice you have.
