Skateboard Buying Guide

Get On Board

Decks

Skateboard decks come in a whole range of shapes and sizes. We could be here forever talking about different types like cruisers, longboards and everything in between, so for this guide, we’re sticking to your regular skateboard. The most common shape is the popsicle, which features a round nose and tail, it's an ideal shape to start with. Sizing for skateboards is based on the measurement across the with of the deck in inches. 

A basic guide to finding out what size is best for you:

  • Height 5’ and under: 7.75”- and smaller
  • Height 5’1 – 5’4: 7.75” – 8” Board
  • Height 5’5 – 5’8: 8” – 8.25” Board 
  • Height 5’9 – 6’: 8.25” – 8.5” Board

The size of your board is a personal preference, a skinny board will react quickly and flip faster, a wider board will feel more stable and provide more to land on. If you’re stuck, an 8” board is a great place to start for most.
