SKATEBOARD SIZES & BUYING GUIDE

If you’re looking to get going straight away, a Complete Skateboard is the right choice for you. With a wide range of designs, colours and deck sizes to choose from, there’s a complete set-up for everyone. Remember that when buying a complete skateboard, it’s always good to look out for high quality trucks and bearings so that you do not have to replace parts all the time.

Here we look a bit more indepth to help pick the right size board for you. (Please note that this is a rough guide and skateboard sizes are mainly benefitted on self preference).

 

What size skateboard should you get? We recommend starting with a skateboard deck width that is proportional to your shoe size. If you wear men’s size 6.5 to 9, start out with a deck width of 7.5 to 8.0 inches. If you wear shoes 9.5 or larger, we recommend getting a deck between 8.0 and 8.5 inches.In general, skaters who like flip tricks, manuals, ledges, flat bars and technical tricks usually prefer boards on the narrower side of the spectrum (7.75 – 8.25 inches). Those who skate big bowls, hand rails, or like to jump down large gaps and stairs are usually more comfortable with a larger board (8.25 – 9.0 inches). Wider boards are also great for transportation because they offer a more stable and comfortable standing platform.
TIP: Don’t be afraid to try out different sizes to find out what works best for you. There’s no exact science about deck size – only personal preference.
