Summer might be slowly coming to an end, but sunshine has never been a British speciality – and our particular brand of dreariness should never stop you from exploring your surroundings, especially if you’re a skater. In fact, the litany of country roads, abandoned car-parks, winding suburban estates and grimy back alleys that litter our country provide the perfect platform for any would be skater. Indeed, some of the most influential, paradigm-shifting skaters of the last 20 years have been borne out of the unique circumstances of British urban geography – think Geoff Rowley and Tom Penny.

New to Zavvi this autumn is British brand Osprey Skateboards, who produce a wide range of ready-to-go skateboards at fantastic prices. From longboards and cruisers to your standard street and vert decks, Osprey have a very cool selection of graphics to decorate their high quality decks. Below is a quick preview of the Osprey range, but take a look through our full election of Osprey Skateboards and find the right board for you.

 

Osprey Longboards

Similar to a standard skateboard, a longboard is – get this – substantially longer. Rather than for street or vert tricks, a longboard is much more of a means of transportation, perfect for turning a 30 minute walk into a 5 minute ride. They’re most commonly used for cruising around town (looking like a boss), downhill racing, slalom and generally sliding about and having some good hearty fun.

You can find a wide range of Osprey Longboards here at Zavvi. But if you’re looking for something a little smaller…

 

Osprey Cruisers

Osprey Cruisers

Smaller and more stylish than their longboard cousins, cruisers are inspired by the original shape of the plastic skateboards that first began to grow as a subculture in the 1970s. Modern designs now are generally made of the same multi-ply construction as the normal street skateboard.

Our Osprey cruisers come in a variety of styles to cater for every skater.
