This skid plate combo from Seismic is perfect for decks like Moonshine’s Nick Beaulieu and Cirus‘ Flamingo – just bolt ’em on and go.
Or, you know, ask really nicely and one of our Experienced Workshop Technicians will install them for you when you buy a deck at the same time.
These are Seismic's new skid plates, made using some high-grade proprietary compound designed to resist wear, and tested by professional freestylers Tony Gale and Stefan "Lillis" Åkesson. They're slightly grippier than a regular skid plate, so if you find most skids a little too slippery, these are worth looking into.
They're also shaped considerably different to most skids; that curve along the bottom side gives something a little extra to lock onto for caspers, a better point to grab for airwalks and fingerflips, and reduces the overall weight by 5g compared to other skids of a similar size.
We sell them individually because some folks like leaving one end "au naturel", but buy two of these and you'll be saving money in the long term - trust us on that. Each one comes with the necessary hardware to mount it to a deck, but you will need a drill to put them on.
This particular shape works well on the Tony Gale, Lillis Åkesson, and Felix Jonsson boards from Moonshine, the Postcard from Mode Skateboards, and the tail of the Nick Beaulieu deck from Moonshine - but that deck needs a different skid for the nose.
(Don't know how to fit skid plates? Look in the description below for a handy installation guide.)
After the success of their first skid plates, Seismic decided to make some new shapes out of the same high-grade proprietary compound. Like the original skids, these last longer and are slightly grippier than regular skid plate material - only now you can use them on directional and single kick boards.
They also keep Seismic's curve along the bottom edge of the skid, giving you something a little extra to lock onto for caspers, a better point to grab for airwalks and fingerflips, and reducing the overall weight by 5g compared to other skids of a similar shape and size. Each one comes with the necessary hardware to mount it to a deck, but you will need a drill to put them on.
This particular shape works well on the nose of the Turi Zoltan deck from Cirus, the Denham Hill, Nick Beaulieu, and Kill Your Idols boards from Moonshine, the Deco and Mike Rogers decks from Mode Skateboards, and the nose of most typical 1980s reissues like the Mullen Chessboard. All of those decks will need a different skid for the other end of the deck, however.
It's also useable on both ends of the Toshiaki Fujii deck from Moonshine, so make sure you pick up two of these if you're planning on using this skid for that deck.
