    Posted: 19 January 2022 at 3:34am

The mini skateboard is the choice for smaller skaters who are under 4 or 5 years old or anyone who wants to keep fit during the warm season. Although your kids can still manage to skate on a bigger board, it is way better to find the best fit for them. 

Since children can not choose their mini skateboards on their own, parents are the ones who make the decision. Therefore, I would like to show you the easiest way to choose a good mini skateboard for your kids


The very first skateboard was invented in the 1940s in California with the initial purpose of bringing surfing on land. Therefore, skateboards at that time were just ordinary boards, and people attached wheels to them. Then, polyurethane wheels were born in the 1970s and made skateboarding more and more popular.

Nowadays, skateboarding has made its way to becoming one of the official sports in the Olympics. Although skateboards have gone through several changes, the basic structure is still similar to its ancestor as what other pro skaters at SkateAdvisors discussed about the evolution of skateboards. 

Modern skateboards are constructed from several layers of rock maple or bamboo and two pairs of wheels are attached to the underside of the deck. Urethane wheels are still widely used in the skateboarding industry like in the past. 

When getting to a local skate shop, parents must be amazed by the variety of categories that the store offers. Skateboards are available in different types such as longboards, fingerboards, cruisers, old school skateboards, and mini skateboards. 


When referring to mini skateboards, we can understand that all skateboards with the size of less than 24 x 6 inches and intended to be used for small kids are classified as mini skateboards. Despite the humble size, a proper mini skateboard can withstand up to 80 kg which equals the weight of a teenager. 

Sometimes, parents may encounter a sort of skateboard called penny boards which are practically mini skateboards. The deck is also made of wood or plastic but Chinese maple is the more popular material. 

With the purpose of providing smaller boards for kids, some manufacturers even manage to produce skateboards shorter than 17 inches and the width is only about 5 inches. However, these boards can only be used for riders weighing less than 50 kg. 

Due to the availability of low-quality mini skateboards, parents can easily choose a cheap product that is available at any mall. Even though the cost for purchasing is low, these boards can not work well when skating as well as they are easily broken. Hence, it is definitely not safe to use for kids. 


I myself prefer buying skateboards from well-known brands to avoid low-quality products. If you have no idea about which brand you should purchase from, why don’t you visit SkateAdvisors and see what professional skaters suggest?

By reading through some reviews, parents can easily point out the pros and cons of each brand. Then, based on what they want for their kids, picking a good skateboard is just a matter of time. 

I strongly recommend buyers check the technical specification provided by manufacturers on their official website to avoid choosing the wrong model when purchasing from a third party. 

Based on what I know, mini skateboards are classified based on the size of the deck which includes micro decks, mini decks, medium-sized decks, and full-sized decks. Remember that a larger skateboard may work fine for small kids; however, a too-small deck will cause several problems for kids. 

Trucks and bearings also need attention as safety and maneuverability depend critically on them. Aluminum or durable plastic is popular in the skateboarding industry. Some countries that are famous for manufacturing reliable bearings include Japan, Germany, Sweden, and the USA. 

Finally, we should consider choosing suitable wheels for kids as they just get started with skateboarding. For this reason, small and soft wheels are the ideal choices to enhance traction and facilitate the ride. Parents can spend some minutes learning about the durometer and diameter of skateboard wheels to understand the provided information by the seller. 

This is just a suggestion but having a close look at the date of manufacture can help you to get the best mini skateboard. This tip is only right for wooden boards since the longer these boards are stored in the warehouse, the drier they become. Eventually, they can delaminate soon after you purchase them. 


Choosing a skateboard should also follow the interest of your kids so you may want to take them with you to the skate shop. After all, an ugly skateboard will never interest small kids in this sport.

If you can not sit regularly, you can sin on a chair.
Good luck for the umrah.

This from a little research on internet:

One should sit as close to the optimal sitting position for tashahhud as one reasonably can.

If you can’t rest on your right foot (which is recommended), you should still try (if reasonably able) to keep the bottom of the toes of the right foot facing the qibla, because this is a confirmed sunna. However, if you cannot comfortably do even this, then do what you can comfortably.

If it is difficult you can start with fingerboard. It is a source of fun and enjoyment. Like skateboards, these handy items let you perform tricks and dodge obstacles, but with your hand instead.

I always considered that skateboard matters a lot when it comes to your first ever skateboard. And you are just getting into skateboarding with great confidence and enthusiasm for the better future. But low quality skateboards lose the confidence of the beginner and sometime it leads them to leave this field. Also, not only the quality matters, the suitability of skateboard matters a lot. Whether it suits your style of riding or not. And the surface can be the decision making thing as well. All these things should be covered before reaching for the skateboard. And make sure to have the safety gears and comfortable body wear clothes for better experience.
