Skateboard size guide

Picking the right skateboard is all about checking out its size, especially how wide it is. The width really makes a difference in how comfy you feel cruising and pulling off tricks. Go too wide, and those quick flips might get tricky; go too narrow, and turning and carving can be a bit of a challenge. So, figuring out the perfect skateboard size that fits your style is key as you kick off your skating journey with us!

 

 

Skaters who are into flip tricks and technical moves usually dig boards on the narrower side, like around 7.75 to 8.25 inches. It's all about those lighter weights and quicker spins.

Now, if you're all about big bowls, handrails, or sending it down huge gaps and stairs, you might want to look for a wider board, like 8.25 to 9.0 inches. Wider decks bring that comfy and stable feel, perfect for cruising and getting around. But hey, keep in mind, these wider ones are a bit heavier and won't spin as fast when you're pulling off tricks.

And for the little shredders just starting out, a smaller deck in the 7.0 to 7.5-inch range is the way to roll.
