What is CONCRETE WAVE?
Before we dive deep into the styles, let’s learn a little bit about skateboard culture and some of their interesting terms. Knowing the origin and the culture of skateboarding can help you successfully develop a sense of this style.
●First question, what is Concrete Wave? It is a slang term for skateboarding. You can say, “Let’s ride the Concrete Wave!” when you’re heading to the park with your skateboarding squad.
●When you see skaters riding straight off something and freefall to the ground, here comes a perfect Acid Drop.
●As for Airwalk, it is an aerial trick that a skater grabs the nose of the board, kicks the feet out while in the air, and then quickly back on when he's about to land it.
●Steez is the common way skaters describe another skater’s style. It’s not about their clothing style, it’s about their rider.
●When skaters call someone a Snake, they’re referring to somebody that drops into the bowl when it is not his turn and cuts other people off. It can also be used as a verb as "I was waiting to drop in when that dude snaked.”

Skate Pants & Joggers
“Get out and skate”
The skater style is all about functional and non-restrictive items that are suitable for doing various tricks and provide some protection. Some skater styles exaggerate the ensemble with tight pants or very loose-fitting baggy sweatpants, but be careful, they might hinder you when you’re trying to perform tricks. In this case, slim fit joggers will be an excellent option to give you a snazzy laid-back vibe while providing you great durability and comfort.
These Core Black Space Dye Twill Jogger Pants and Black Marl Fleece Jogger Pants are your best go-to since they easily go well with anything that already exists in your wardrobe. These modern fit black joggers are also the best solution for beginners who might fall off frequently when practicing new tricks.
Depending on the types of skater you may want to be, your style may differ. You can get a little bit creative and play with colors in our Tobacco Side Zipper Pocket Twill Jogger Pants. These Tabacco joggers offer a similar aesthetic to black joggers while adding a modern touch to the look.
If you’re looking to nail the skater style, embrace your male boldness with these White Fleece Core Jogger Pants. Show off your advanced skateboarding tricks in these true fit comfy white joggers. Whatever creative ways you may want to try, just keep in mind that the main rule is to always try to be original and go for what fits you best.
Cargo Joggers have always been the staple. We expect all kinds of accidents such as twisting, falling and the board might smack into your legs when you’re trying new tricks.
Since Cargo joggers are easy to move in and happens to be one of the most fashionable elements in today’s trend, these Charcoal Grey Cargo Pocket Twill Jogger Pants will be your next favorite go-to. You can easily rock the skater look with any hoodies, anoraks, tank tops or denim jackets
Skate shorts will help you stay cool while looking cool this summer. Their unrestrictive design is perfect for bowl or vert skating since they provide you with more flexibility and comfort.
If you are dealing with advanced tricks, add a pair of knee pads to strengthen protection. Try out these White Printed Space Dye Heat Seal Shorts that finish above your knee and feature a straight fit. For warmer days, channel the skater style with tank tops and graphic tees. Add a snazzy denim jacket or hoodie to layer up when the weather becomes cooler at night.
