How an eleven-year-old boy started his skateboard gear shop

Post by rosariodach » Wed, 27 May 2020 10:25 pm

Are you a skateboard enthusiast? Do you love skateboarding? I guess the answer is Yes. There is also a boy who just like us but has started his own business of skateboards from a very young age. This story was shared by Skateadviors. I really admire this boy and really want to share his story with you.

Spencer Semien was an incredible boy since he stood on a skateboard by himself when he was at the age of three.

His mother said skateboarding came to him by surprise, and it became her son's passion. If you are parents, you will know that to afford a child’s passion, you will need to have a lot of money. Spencer needed to have a part-time job to pay for his passion. Fortunately, the boy already had some computer skills and had his own website. So, it was not hard to build another website devoted to skateboarding.

At the age of eleven, Spencer got his skateboarding site up and put it into operation with the help of a local skateboard shop and his mother. Like other kids, Spencer also started with a skateboard designed especially for his age. If you are parents and your kids are about to learn skateboarding, you can refer to this list of best skateboards for kids - good skateboards for kids.

The site mainly sells skateboarding equipment to intermediate and professional skateboarders. People can buy fully assembled skateboards and singular skateboard parts and accessories like wheels, trucks, grip tape, etc. Skateboard repair tools and safety equipment also can be found on the website.

The website sells not the only skateboard for those who skate in the warm weather but also skateboards for the cold weather, proven by a selection of snowboard and protective gear.

You can find a full range of skateboarding service on the website along with equipment supplies. Visitors to the site can find the technical support page to read about skateboard or find tips to build a skateboarding ramp on their own.

The site uses video technology where skaters can find and study tricks from video clips made by skateboarders chosen by Spencer. He always chooses ones that he thinks are worthy of being sponsored. Many “sponsor me” were sent to the website. After reviewing all of them, a few were selected to receive free merchandise from this site.

Visitors who are not skateboarders are also welcome to the site. So who are those non-skaters? They are maybe parents or those who want to learn about a friend’s pastime.

The site also dedicates a section for the skateboarding history. In this section, you will find the process of evolution of skateboarding from the early 90s to today. The site also addresses the difficulties that have hindered the development of this sport over the years, regarding the safety level.

If you still want to play skateboard but something less dangerous, let’s try cruiser skateboarding. If you haven’t had a board to play this game then refer to this best cruiser boards - best cruiser skateboards under $100

It may be hard to believe that people didn’t use to wear a helmet and other protective paddings when they got on their skateboards.
Sad things happened in the late ‘70s when many skateparks were shut down due to security liability issues. The site points them out all.

This site helps to make clear of misconceptions about skateboarding. It works to increase its bottom line and help the sport grows at the same time. therefore, Spencer and his mother should feel proud to have brought a very useful website for everyone.

You may wonder what that name of the website is. I will tell you right now, it is the Allproskate. This website has more than 9000 products to choose from.
When you come to Allproskate, you will be secured 100% to order online. You will also receive discounts and specials from brands like Zero, Hookups, Habitat, Zoo York, Element, etc. If your total purchase is more or equal to $150, you will receive free shipping.

Allproskate also dedicates a section to update news, information on the latest skateboard contests, and events. You are allowed to post and view skateboard contest videos from all over the world.

Besides Allproskate, you can visit Skateadvisors to read more useful information about skateboarding.

It's a protected profession here (i.e. reserved for locals) as the local uni pushes out more than enough architect grads every year. Also you need to be registered here etc.
