Shaun White Supply Co Review and Giveaway.

If I say Shaun White would you know who I am talking about?    If so you would recognize the name of the two-time Olympic gold medalist and skateboard champion.    He is definitively a guy passionate about sports as he excels in skateboarding as well as snowboarding.   What you probably don’t know is that Shaun White has partnered with D6 Sports to create his own action sports product line, Shaun White Supply Co. (SWSC). SWSC creates, producesimage and delivers authentic products at the highest specs at price point.   Shaun White Supply Co. offers a product line that includes skateboards, BMX bikes, stunt scooters, protective gear, ramps, rails, and other various products. 

So when I got approached with the opportunity to review a product from SWSC, I was ecstatic and fearful at the same time.   Why?  Well my oldest son has been wanting a skateboard for quite some time and honestly I wasn’t too comfortable with it – knowing how he is at home going to fast and hurting himself all the time.    But I also sensed that it was time for him to grow and learn to be wise.  So why not…?    However, I also asked for an helmet to protect his head (and all my other kids head eventually) which was granted.  Keep reading to find a special announcement at the bottom of this review!

The Black Helmet.


The black helmet comes in two sizes – small/medium and large/extra-large.   We received the L/XL helmet and let me tell you that it is quite comfortable.  The helmet has been built specifically for Shaun’s demanding riding style.   It has been designed to protect you just in case you don’t land.    The outer shell is quite hard and it is ergonomically designed for a better fit.   Comfort lining is included and you can also add some more if necessary.  Also the straps are made of durable nylon and the buckles of hard plastic.   With this helmet on your head, you can be sure that you head and brain will have the highest protection possible.  

Here’s how the helmet look like on myself…  now I am unsure I will venture on the skateboard once the spring season comes back but I know my kids will have the highest protective gear for their head. 


The skateboard.

I have received the Sketch Hand Skateboard.   This skateboard is a complete deck built to the specs of Shaun White with Urban and Street skaters in mind. The deck is 31.875” long by 8” large. Let me tell you that I am impressed with the size of it.   It is well made and the wheels turn smoothly.   Check out the design under the skateboard.


I particularly like the fact that the top of the skateboard is quite large to allow your child to slowly build up confidence with it.    Sorry no picture of me on the board – my confidence is not there yet! LOL

However, I can tell you that I am impressed with the quality found in the board itself.  The thickness and the way the wheels are attached to it is impressive.  Okay I will admit that I am not a grand connoisseur of skateboarding but I have seen other skateboards in stores and this one surpasses them.

Also I have learned that every product has been rigorously tested, changed and tested again until Shaun and his team felt the SWSC standards were met. It was important to White that not only could SWSC’s products be used by him in competition, but that they could also be used by youth and beginners.

So as you can see, any of the products of SWSC would be the ultimate gift for the action sports enthusiast, or someone just getting their feet wet.  This holiday season is the perfect time to get kids moving and introduce action sports to those who have always wanted to shred like their favorite professional athletes!   Why not get a skateboard and an helmet to encourage your kids to get out and try something new this year? 


Shaun White Supply Co. also offer ramps and other protective gears for the kids.
