The rider chooses the deck, trucks, wheels, risers, bearings and grip tape! Don’t know what all those parts are? No worries, BOARDLife is also happy to teach you everything you need to know and can even laser etch a special message, picture, name, design, or slogan onto the board to make it true one-of-a kind!
