100% Skater Satisfaction Guaranteed

Skateboards of Choice is skater owned and skater run to deliver 100% Skater Satisfaction - guaranteed!

The site was set up in 2004 by Ed Slateford, an oldschool skateboarder who refuses to grow old gracefully.

All quality, all the time
We're called Skateboards of Choice because we only deal in top-quality skateboards and equipment.

A skateboard is a precision instrument and you need to feel confident that the deck beneath your feet won’t break after a few weeks (or days) of use.

We don't sell inferior products. That’s why you can't buy a £9.99 skateboard on our site.

100% Skater Satisafaction Guaranteed
If for any reason you're not happy with your purchase, send it back and get a refund or choose something else!

In stock for same-day despatch
We keep our stock in our own warehouse, so you can be sure of prompt delivery.

If a product is out of stock, leave your email address and we will email you as soon as it’s back in stock.
