Tips for the New Skateboard Owner

Congratulations! You have a new deck. Now here are some tips about how to take care of it--and take care of you, too.

Skate And Ride Safely: Don't skate beyond your ability. The skateboarders pictured in our catalog are professionals, and we would make them wear safety gear if we could. Do not follow their bad example. Always wear protective gear and watch for traffic. Protective gear is located in the Accessories sections of the online skate and snow catalogs.

Board Breakage: The main cause for cracks or breaks is improper foot placement when landing jumps. CCS (or the store where you bought your deck) will not replace broken boards or ones with pressure cracks, so skate smart.

Water Damage: If you want your skateboard to last, stay out of the water! It will rust your bearings, cause your deck to come apart (delaminate), destroy your bushings, and possibly cause your deck graphic to smear. Avoid wet conditions.

Adjustments To Completes: Since the nuts may loosen during shipment, make sure they are secure when you receive your complete. Even though all the hardware is self-locking and should stay snug, check it regularly anyway. Your trucks' king pin nuts should be tightened or loosened to turn to your liking. At first, you may notice that it seems like the trucks stick to one side or that all of the wheels don't touch the ground when you step on your deck. This is due to the new urethane bushings in the trucks. The bushings will take time to break in, depending on the amount of use the trucks receive. Also, wheels should have a slight bit of "play" without being loose.

CCS gift certificates - the perfect gift for giving...and getting.

Great men are always of a nature originally melancholy.
