How to Choose the Right Skateboard Deck


There are a lot of different parts on a skateboard, but one of the most obviously important is the skateboard deck. The skate deck is the flat board that you stand on when skateboarding. A shortboard, as opposed to a longboard or cruiser, is ideal for street skateboarding and vert skateboarding. It also remains the very best option for doing tricks, whether you are a beginner or a pro.

There are a few things to consider once you decide to build a complete skateboard, and picking the right size of deck is the first of many choices you'll make. Choosing board shape is also super important. The length, width, materials, and concave of your skateboard deck determine what you will be able to do on your skateboard.

7.5" to 8" - Standard board for adult riders skating streets or doing more technical tricks
8.0" to 8.25" - Skating pool, ramp, rail, and parks
8.25" and larger - Vert, pools, cruising, and just going old school

Depending on how hard you skate, you'll want to replace your skateboard deck anywhere from after a few weeks to a year. Once the sides, nose, or tail of your skateboard deck show signs of splitting, it's time to start with a fresh board. Riding in wet or cold areas can also warp the shape of your board and make your skateboard wheels uneven, so be sure to replace your board if you feel or see any signs.
