From Checkered Kicks to Off-Road Skate Decks

 - Dec 13, 2012
If you've got teenagers, Lil Wayne or any other skateboarding enthusiasts in your family, theses gifts for skaters will come in handy.

Skateboarding became popular in the 1970s and has had an increasingly huge following ever since. With notorious skaters like the "Z" Boys and Tony Hawk, skate merchandise began and continues to be very profitable. A huge part of the skate world is now reliant on sponsors, advertising collaborations and merchandise featuring certain key figures. Skate culture is constantly expanding and there are tons of vintage and new-age inspired options out there. You can opt for footwear and even pick up some classic navy blue slip-on Vans, a skate shoe worn by the first skateboarders.

Gifts for skaters are readily available and a great option for Holiday gifts.
