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.
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…
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.
