Skateboard Racks were a natural development after skateboarding became popular not only in the United States but worldwide.  Skateboarding is a relatively modern recreational activity and some people also consider it to be an art form, a sport, or a method of transportation.  There are approximately twenty million skateboarders in the world and about 85% of those are under the age of eighteen.  An approximately 75% of those young users were male.  These racks offer security from theft in any location where skateboards need to be stored temporarily.  They are commonly found in skating parks, near store fronts, and in schools.

 

Modern Skateboard Racks have been developed for use in securing skateboards and their cousins, mini scooters.  These racks are designed to be durable because they will be primarily located outside and subject to harsh weather conditions.  They are constructed of heavy gauge steel and are zinc plated and/or covered with a thermoplastic finish.  Although some rack models can be wall mounted, the majority are surface mounted on concrete or brick.  Usually these surface mounted models have several options to include a high single or double side post.  The Skateboard Racks are designed for users to place their skateboard or mini scooter in the open space between the tubes.  Each tube has a ring that will slide and can be maneuvered forward for locking purposes.  Simply slide the rings on both the tubes above and below the skateboard or mini scooter and they can be locked together and thereby secure the skateboard or mini scooter to the rack. 

 

Skateboard Racks are offered in different sizes but a common wall mounted rack would measure 24 inches in height, 12 inches in width, and 10 inches in depth.  It would weigh about 35 pounds.  A common surface mounted rack with a one rack post unit would measure 30 inches in height, 12 inches in width, and 12 inches in depth.  It would weigh about 70 pounds.  A common surface mounted rack with a two rack post unit would measure 30 inches in height, 12 inches in width, and 24 inches in depth.  It would weigh about 105 pounds.

 

Skateboarding was referred to as “sidewalk surfing” during its early days in California.  Although the exact origin of the skateboard and skateboarding is muddled, it was developed by surfers sometime in the late 1940s or early 1950s. It was developed as an alternative activity when surfing conditions were not suitable for surfing. Usually this meant there are no waves and the surfers had nothing to do.  The first skateboards were probably built by several people and were made by attaching roller skate wheels to the bottom of a wooden box or board.  The goal was to emulate the turns, twists, and maneuvers that characterize surfing.  Over time improvements were made to both the board and the wheels and the popularity of the sport soared.  Of course, when skateboarders are taking a break they sometimes need a secure place to store their favorite skateboard.  Thus Skateboard Racks were born, providing a safe and convenient storage option for all skateboard riders.
