Skateboards are back in fashion.
For the past few years, skateboarding’s reputation has been under assault by a handful of companies that have been accused of exploiting its appeal for cheap, mass-produced products.
With an increasing number of brands making their skateboards in China, and skaters who have found themselves frustrated with the competition in China due to the high price, the popularity of the sport is on the rise.
The industry has also been hit hard by a recent spike in the price of Chinese products, which have seen a drop in demand from China.
According to Skate.com, the average price of a skateboard in China has increased by nearly 50% in the last year.
However, some of the biggest names in skateboarding, including the likes of Skate King, Skate Skates and Skateboard, are still making skateboards for under $1,000.
Although this may not seem like a lot of money, it is actually quite a bit cheaper than it used to be.
In 2015, Sketchers UK revealed that the average skater was spending between $600 and $700 per month on a skateboard, and that many of them were using the cheaper boards to make a living.
These cheap boards have seen an increase in popularity as well.
Skate King recently released its first ever full-size skater, which retails for £849 (around $1.8 million) on Amazon.
This is in addition to the cheaper models sold by the likes aero, Skat, and Skater UK.
There is also a huge demand for cheap skateboards from other countries.
Recently, we caught up with the skater and skateboard designer, Matt Gannon, who has been making skateboard-inspired products for over ten years.
He explained that skaters in China have been able to get cheap skates for under a dollar because of the country’s strict regulations and the increased availability of cheap skateboards in general.
Gannon is also responsible for the designs that make up the most popular boards on the market, including SkateKing, Skater King, and even the skateboards of the likes, The Skate Crew and Skateshop.
“The main problem with Chinese skateboarding is that Chinese skateboards are basically a collection of parts,” he explained.
“I wanted to create a skate board that was as cheap as possible.”
As I started out designing boards in China I started to realise that a lot more expensive skateboards were coming out in China.
The cheaper boards were selling faster than the more expensive ones and the prices on the cheap boards were going up because people were just starting to look at skateboarding as a hobby rather than a business.
When I started designing boards for Skate Kings in 2015, I knew that it was going to be a long journey.
I was hoping that by the time I finished, I could have the boards available to all the brands and people who want to buy them.
“I wanted a board that would be made in China that was cheap, but would still be durable and look good in the hands of a skateboarding enthusiast.
The problem is that the Chinese skateboard market is very small, so the quality and design of the boards has to be high.
As the number of Chinese skate brands have increased, the prices of Chinese skates have gone down.
A number of the Chinese companies that are making skateboarding boards are making skates that have some form of metal construction, and many of the most expensive boards are made of aluminum.
While some of these boards are still relatively affordable, most are no longer made by Skate Kingdom, which is now making skaters that are all aluminium.
But there are still some cheaper boards out there.
Despite the increase in prices of cheaper boards, many of these are still made in factories in China with Chinese workers working at incredibly high temperatures, with a large proportion of the skateboarding machinery being made in the country.
Many of these skates also have no wheels, meaning that they have no grip and are very difficult to ride.
We asked Gannon what it was like to design boards in a factory, which he said was “very hard”.”
The manufacturing process in China is very different to what it is in the US,” he said.
It’s really difficult.
I think you’ve got to be incredibly passionate about designing boards because you’re basically just designing a skate.
You have to have a certain amount of patience to do it, and you have to make sure that it’s made in a way that is consistent with the skateboard industry.
One of the things that you’ve just got to really work hard at is that everything that you’re designing, everything is designed to be able
