Everything You Need to Know to Become a Core Skater

January 26, 2018

new electric skateboardSkateboarding can be an excellent hobby for anyone but it also can be so much more rewarding for those who are considered "core skaters." 

If you want to borrow a board from your friend and skate once or twice a year, that's fine -- go for it! But if you want to really enjoy all the benefits of being part of the skateboarding culture, you need to get out and skate a lot more and do a few other things. Here is everything you need to know if you want to become a core skater: 

You have to skate, and skate A LOT
Typically, a core skater is someone who skates at least 26 times a year, but you really should get out much more than that. Skating two times a month is fine but you won't really feel like you're getting much better if that's all you're doing. You don't have to be a great skater to be part of this scene, but you do have to put some effort in. 

You have to get a little dirty
No one likes the skater who plays it safe 100% of the time. Obviously you need to always be careful and wear proper safety gear, but as you're learning how to skate you just need to go for tricks you know you can't do yet and keep trying until you get them. Get out and fall and scrape up your elbows and knees and get a little dirty. One of the most important aspects of skating isn't landing a trick, it's falling down and getting right back up. 

You have to be ready to evolve
Skateboarding is always changing and it's up to the skaters to fully embrace these new changes. You can hang on to the history of skating forever, but you should be willing to accept the future of the sport as well. For example, skate electric is the new wave that has made its way to the skating community and it's important to embrace it. Keep your old boards but find some quality new electric skateboards and give it a try. These new electric skateboards are so much fun and much faster than traditional boards, so there's no reason you can't have both. 

Stop waiting to join this fun group of worldwide skaters -- all you have to do is pick up a board and get outside. Good luck and have fun! If you want to learn more about motorized skateboarding or find great new electric skateboards, contact Evolve Skateboards today.
