The change of season may not always require skaters to change and upgrade their boards and existing apparel in their wardrobes. The key is to check what's needed an update or replacement to fully enjoy shredding sessions. Comfort and safety are the utmost priority in making a decision to shop for a skate deck or a complete skateboard, as well as proper clothing.
Not every skate upgrade requires getting a complete board. You will need to check your board on a regular basis to see which hardware needs replacement, or if the deck is still strong enough to endure long hours of shredding, grinding, and everything else in between. The normal wear and tear of your board can tell you if it's time to replace a worn out part, or if it's time to get a complete skateboard. Any of these decisions can also alter the way you skate and/or lets you see if you have acquired enough skill and experience to choose a more technically advanced skate part or complete board to complement your current needs.
