View Beginner Skateboards for Kids
Riding the right size skateboard will help beginner skateboarders learn faster, and stay safer. Smaller skateboards are easier for kids to control and steer.
Our decks are made in the USA with 7-Ply Canadian Maple. Just because this is a beginner skateboard doesn't mean you'll lose quality. These are pro-level decks, with super durable graphics and finishes.

Our skateboards come in various sizes including an XS which is perfect for beginner skateboarders around 5 years old. We also have a S skateboard which is great for kids ages 6-9 years old. Check out our Sizing Guide for more information on what size deck is right for your beginner skateboarder.
Why do I need to buy a beginner skateboard?
What makes our skateboards the best for beginners? We made a list:
1. High-Quality Decks: Made right here in the USA, we use 7-Ply Canadian Maple. Our skateboards are built to last and take some shredding!
2. Stain Not Stickers: Most skateboards (especially kids skateboards) get a layer of plastic applied to the deck which easily rips off and leaves edges. Our decks are stained which means the finish is more durable, and there's no risk of ripping.
3. Super Durable Graphics: We have done extensive testing and research to create a finishing process that is unmatched in durability. Our graphics are applied using a TOP SECRET method, and our decks are finished with a few layers of clear polyurethane. This method leaves them ready to stand up to the toughest treatment.
4. The Right Size Deck: A smaller deck makes controlling and steering the board much easier. Using an adult size deck is like asking your kid to learn to ride a bike on YOUR bike!
“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!”

“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!”
