One of the best set ups we have put together this year, this is another Hopkin custom build. We have picked the best components to match with the skate deck.
What we have is a Eternal x Sea Shepherd collaboration. We chose this deck because the graphic is amazing and it glows in the dark. Awesome cause - see below for more details.
A mini size, perfect for younger kids. It is a bit narrower, helps learning tricks easier because the board is lighter. Suit any beginner that is 4 years to 8 years old. Or anyone that wants a smaller skateboard.
We paired it with Independent Trucks (109 Stage 11) and Ricta 52mm Cloud wheels. The trucks are premium, Indy are the number one truck in the market, loved by millions of skaters and it is the defacto skate truck standard that everyone else is measured against. The wheels are 78a clear blue. Means they are soft and can roll around on rough surface, good for the street, footpaths. Tjhey are also a skateboard wheel that is excellent in the skatepark. So you have the best of both worlds. The softer formula is excellent for learns, it makes rising over imperfects easy.
Looks good, performs like a professional board. The ultimate kids skateboard!
Around the world sharks are in big trouble, with over 90% of the world's sharks wiped out through fishing, cruel shark finning and particular shark mitigation strategies, like nets and drumlines. As a result these, between 70 and 100 million sharks die a year.
Places where sharks have been wiped out have been drastically impacted by the loss, with effects ranging from collapse of fisheries, coral reef growth being stunted, to oxygen depleted dead zones. As important apex predators, sharks have shaped marine life in the oceans since the dawn of time and are essential to the health of our oceans, and ultimately to the survival of mankind.
Eternal Skateboards have teamed up with Sea Shepherd Australia to release a series of graphics to help defend sharks. A percentage of every sale wikll go towards protecting sharks worldwide and support more effective mitigation strategies thanks to Sea Shepherd's dedication to the cause.
