Skateboarding is a modern recreational sport that was developed in the late 1940’s as a surfboard on land. That is quite odd but actually that is how it was designed to be. Skateboarding is hugely popular in the U.S. where it is actually one of the favorite pastimes of teenagers, and some not so young people. But skateboarding is not all about skateboarding and freestyle moves and kick flips. Skateboarding is also about the skateboard apparel. You must have the style, the look, the appealing aura towards onlookers. If you are a skater, you know what that means.
Skateboard apparel is specially designed to fashion skaters. There is a huge collection of different t-shirts, skateboard shoes, sweatshirts, jackets, hats, shoes, and even accessories for those skaters out there. There are various designs for both the young men and ladies. But that’s not all, gears like helmets, and bags are also available. You can find them in any sports oriented store or for an easier wide range of selection; you can access the internet to find online stores.
Unbelievable as it may seem, there is really a specified fashion that is designed for this kind of recreational sport. For the ladies out there, clothing recommended are jackets (that is to protect their skin from any scars or cuts that would result from any fall) and vividly colored t-shirts with some cool designs for the girls who love to speed up in their designer shirts. Specific brands for ladies include Alva, Enjoi, and Spitfire, to name a few of a huge stash of branded t-shirts for skateboarding.
Bright colored T-shirts are recommended for skaters (that is for both boys and girls). It would be easier to identify them from a short distance with these shirts on them. More popular type for men is the short sleeved shirts with its cool designs and vivid colors.
Though it would be a debate whether to wear skateboarding pants or skateboarding shorts; the either way still has it great benefiting joint. Skateboarding pants are less comfortable and is less preferred by skaters but otherwise is safer as it protects them from cuts and scars. Skateboarding shorts are comfortable as it allows the skater move freely, but it has its dangers of wounding after falls. But either way, it is up to you skater what you have to choose.
Sweatshirts are also included in our skateboard apparel as it keeps the skater warm (that would therefore not be effective for hot environments). Sweatshirts are available in different designs; there are crew cut designs, some with a hood and others with small collars. Other designs have zippers that are half-way through the sweatshirt or the entire length of the sweatshirt. Sweatshirts are worn loose to make the skater look huge.
Caps and hats are also part of the skateboard apparel if you want to look rather cool. But if you prefer to be safe, helmets, elbow and knee pads are worn. Save not from the cool skater accessories like bracelets, and chokers if you really are into fashion. Shoes, and slippers are quite cool; you can choose from these both.
And to end all these chatter, you end up not only a skater but you would even look like a skater having selected from these skateboard apparel. Have fun then and skate to wherever or however you like.
