Skateboarding can be unpredictable. As much as you know what to do with that board, outside forces can always take over the outcome of a situation. Security and rainy weather are two common examples. Even airport bag checks can be difficult while traveling with a complete skateboard.
The act of skateboarding will always come with its obstacles, and those are part of the reason why street skating is so fun. But there are things we can all do to help ourselves out as skateboarders. The new Element “Travel Well” deck comes complete with a travel board bag. That’s useful for keeping your board dry and for the skateboarder that has their board while riding a bike or at school.
Now, there are no worries when carrying your board to school, through the rain to the covered spot, or when flying to a new city to skate with friends. It’s not always easy to have a skateboard with us at all times, even though some of us would like to. But buying a bag for your board can help make it easier to have your board everywhere.
Aside from that, Element has been in the game since 1992 and making quality boards from quality wood for its entirety. Part of the ethos of Element Skateboards is to travel often and experience much within and outside of skateboarding. So it makes sense that they would bring the “Travel Well” deck to us, to skateboarding.
We hope more of this exists in the future, and we’re stoked that it is available now. You can find it on our website or at some skateshops now. Now get out there, go skate, and Travel Well.
