Complete Skateboards Guide

Complete Skateboards Guide

Complete skateboards are ready to ride, pre-build skateboards which are perfect for beginners who want to start skating as soon as possible. When it comes to completes there is an endless selection, but it can always be tough decided which ones are actually good enough quality and worth buying.

You’re probably familiar with those £10 skateboards you might see at Tesco but those contraptions don’t even deserve to call themselves skateboards. They are made with very low quality wood, plastic trucks and even worse plastic wheels. From the view point of a skater, these are a complete waste of money. You should view a skateboard as an investment; you get what you pay for. As a general rule of thumb, the more you spend, the better quality skateboard you’ll receive (as you should expect).

At Aylesbury Skateboards we are always happy to encourage young people to start skating, especially if it means they’re not riding a scooter. We made sure to find the best possible beginner completes for the money to stock so you know they will hold up a hell of a lot better than many other completes out there.


Rocket Skateboards make the best price point complete skateboards. They retail at around £35 and are significantly better than many others at the same price point. These skateboards are perfect for younger beginners (aged 4-10) who want to try out skating for the first time. It should give them a good taste of what skating is like with a decent quality setup. They come with a range of great board graphics to choose from which all come with matching wheels. Bearings are often abec 5s but some come with abec 7s. The great thing about these boards is that they use all standard skateboard components so that they can be upgraded when needed.

We also offer a selection of mid-to-upper-range completes for older or more advanced skaters. These are ideal for anyone who wants the quality of a professional level skateboard but not the hassle of selecting individual components and putting together a setup. They come pre-built and ready to skate straight out of the box with all-round higher quality materials. For example, at the moment we stock a few Cliché, Almost, Flip and Santa Cruz completes to name a few. These are all huge brandnames offering higher price point setups for the more discerning skater. These completes range from around £55-£85 depending on brand and size.

We have also started to create our own custom completes which are available in store or online. We offer the option to pick any deck from our range, and add a complete undercarriage kit to make it a whole board. We’ll even throw in some free Jessup grip, some bolts and assemble it in store to get you skating straight away. The undercarriage kit is £40 and the decks usually range from £40 – £55 meaning you can throw together a custom complete setup with the deck of your choice for as little as £80.

You can view a full range of completes on Aylesbury Skateboards, or come in store and pick one out in person.
