Buying a Skateboard
Active started selling skateboards in southern California in 1989 and now we carry all varieties of skateboards from the traditional trick decks used in street and transitional skating to shortboards, old school cruisers, and longboards. We've got one of the best collections of decks, wheels, bearings, trucks, griptape, and hardware, right here online, making it easy to find everything you need to build a custom complete and to customize your whole setup.

In its beginnings Hard Luck started as a wheel company and has over the years morphed and evolved from wheels, to clothing (t-shirts, hats, beanies, sweatshirts socks), limited edition skate decks and now some of the best high performance skate bearings in the market.
