Skateboard skid plates have no serious purpose other than for pure fun, and maybe freaking people out a bit. Read on to learn about some of the best skid plates available for skateboards today.
- Tail Devil Skid Plates. Tail Devil Skid Plates are skid plates that, when stuck to your skateboard, will cause a series of sparks to fly from your board. The magnitude of the sparks will depend on a few factors, including the strength of force applied during skateboarding, the quality of the street on which you are dragging your skid plate and the length of time you spend dragging your skid plate on your skateboard.
- The Outlook Tail Skid Plate. This skateboard skid plate is made to fit on the tail of your skateboard deck. This type of skateboard skid plate is designed to fit on new-school-type skateboard decks. Again, like with all skid plates, use it in good fun with your friends during late night beer runs, or for any kind of good-natured tomfoolery that will be prolonged by the addition of skateboard sparks.
