Why Does My Kid Need A Smaller Skateboard?
When a younger kid is ready to start skateboarding, providing them with a smaller deck can make it safer and simpler to learn. A smaller deck is easier for them to steer since they aren’t trying to move an adult-sized skateboard. You wouldn’t teach a child to ride a bike with an adult’s bike, right?
What Makes Carter SB Different?
Stain, Not Stickers!
Our boards are stained so you can still see the wood grain. We then apply graphics (using a TOP SECRET method), that makes them extremely durable. They even hold up to the key-scratch test! You'll be able to pass these boards down to siblings and they'll look like new for years to come!
We are a family-run company based in Everett, WA in the beautiful Pacific NW. Scott (dad) is in charge of making the decks, Carol (mom) does the books, and Carter (daughter) is in charge of final design approval. You'll never struggle to reach us!
Made in the USA!
Our 7-ply, Canadian Maple decks are made right here in the U.S.A. Most kids’ skateboards are made with cheap materials, and a giant sticker is applied over the whole deck which easily rips off and leaves edges. We use a series of heavily tested finishes and graphics applications that make them the most durable decks around.
“Our son skateboards an average of 30-40 hours a week. We usually go through decks fast due to chipping and overall wear – he abuses his boards. Carter SB decks have been a gift to skateboarding! No more chipping and the finish preserves the artwork like I’ve never seen! I will be a Carter SB customer for life since the board sizes grow with your child all the way up to an 8.5! Truly a great value and solid craftsmanship!”

“With so many brands out there to choose from, Carter SB got our eyes because of the beautiful colors and sweet graphics. After trying the decks, my kids are more than happy with the durability and how light the boards are!”
Camila McManus (Kevin and Dylan’s Mom - @surfsk8groms)
“I am absolutely loving my Carter SB deck! I can be pretty rough on my boards and my Carter SB deck is really durable. The graphics are awesome and the stain colors are pretty awesome too! So many options to choose from and you can even have a custom deck made! Every skateboarder needs to get a Carter SB deck!”
