New Popular Skateboard Designs Couldn’t Be Farther Apart

supreme clothing onlineOnly about 3.1% of skateboard sales happen in physical sporting goods stores. Although you can find skateboard decks, Supreme shirts, and Supreme apparel all over, buying your gear and Supreme clothing online is the way to go. Even though skateboarding has moved into the mainstream, the sport has maintained its independent culture. In addition to massive skateboarding companies like Vans, you’ll still find Do It Yourself entrepreneurs releasing new and exciting skateboarding gear and apparel. Case in point: according to Grind TV, Carson Kropfl is making a name for himself manufacturing and selling skateboards to kids across the country. Kropfl takes used skateboards, cuts them down, smooths them out, and then resells them asLocker Boards for profit. He hopes to sell 200 by the end of the holiday season. While 200 boards doesn’t sound like much for a skateboard company, Locker Boards is far from your average skateboard company. “I’m in sixth grade, and it’s my first year having a locker,” said Kropfl. “But the lockers are like, really tiny — too tiny to fit a skateboard — almost no teachers let you bring your boards into class.” That’s right, Kropfl came up with the Locker Board idea because he is 11 years old, and this young entrepreneur turned a regular 11-year-old problem into a profitable business venture. He’s selling these boards for $89 a piece, and if he reaches his goal of 200 boards by the end of Christmas, he will earn $17,800. Not bad for an 11-year-old. Another skateboard design that’s gaining some attention is a little more… traditional. The “Louis XIV” is a skateboard entirely constructed (aside from the trucks and wheels) from oak beams taken from a 17th century church in France. According to Highsnobiety, the 300-year-old board is 16 inches long, 9.45 inches wide, weighs 20 kilograms, and is 11 inches high. The “Louis XIV”, though historically significant and certainly stylish, probably won’t do too well with Kropfl’s demographic, as not too many of those boards are going to fit into middle school lockers. Whatever style of skateboard you decide to purchase, whether it’s a small Locker Board, a 300-year-old log, or a normal board, make sure you shop for Supreme clothing online afterwards to find the perfect style match to your new board.
