The Best Skateboard Forums On The Web

by Dressler Parsons March 20, 2017 2 min read

Whether you've been skating for years or you've just barely picked up a board, you know that most of the appeal of skateboarding is in the super tight, welcoming community. And what better place to find an online skateboarding community than on one of the many skateboard forums?

We rounded up the top five skateboard forums for your benefit. Click through, look around, and see if you find a niche.

5. Boardworld

This forum isn't crazy active, but has a dedicated skateboard section and a consistently updated "News, Videos, and Events" page that has a ton of cool stuff--like a trailer for this movie about skateboarding on frozen sand. 

4. Skatebook

Skatebook is a little more active. The community seems pretty small, but it's supportive. It's a great place to ask for suggestions on the size of the board you should be riding, or to share a vid of you finally nailing that kickflip. There's also an "Introduce Yourself" page, so you can meet the other skaters in your neck of cyberspace. 


3. Skull and Bones Skateboards

Another fairly active forum, this one has over 20 skateboard-specific threads--even some that dive into parts of the industry, like manufacturing and screenprinting. There's also a skateboard art thread specifically, which is more than worth a scroll. 

2. Sidewalk Skateboard Magazine

Super-active, rated, and armed with a backlog of thousands of threads? Yeah, this seems like a pretty great place to spend your time. Plus, they've got a thread full of skate gifs, and another one literally called "Continually Updated Personal Footage." Settle in, look around, and start posting!

1. Slap

Yeah, I'm sure you've heard of this one. And if you haven't, plenty of skaters have. Super, super active and absolutely filled with skaters from all walks of life. Whether you're looking for news, tips, friends, or just trying to keep your finger on the pulse of the skate world, Slap is definitely the place to go.
