First things first, let us tell you why we are going to keep this buyer’s guide short and sweet. The thing is, if you’re not an expert skater, you will likely have a lot of difficulty interpreting very in-depth technical stuff.
This is precisely the reason we think a short, simple but practically useful guide is what novice or beginner skaters need to choose the right skateboard.
That being said, if you’re an expert skateboarder, you can go straight to our product section and choose one of the wide range of options we offer; you probably don’t need to know any of what we are going to talk here anyway. The rest of you, however, would want to stick around.
Complete Or Custom
The first question you will face when going for a skateboard is whether you want to get a complete set or build a custom one. Of course, the latter option is usually for those that are into some advance skateboarding, or even those that are looking to be professionals.
However, if neither of these is the case for you, you may want to stick to a complete set. This basically means buying a pre-assembled skateboard, which is usually ready to use straight out of the box.
If you’re a beginner, it may save you a lot of headache, though it may also mean you may not be able to perform very advanced skills – which is somethingyou’re unlikely to do anyway as a beginner. Not to mention, putting together a custom skateboard can be a massive challenge, especially if you don’t have someone experienced by your side to assist you with the process.
It’s crucial to figure out what the right skateboard deck size is going to be for you, as if you don’t, you may have a hard time getting used to it. It may also make the learning process much more challenging and probably even dangerous in some cases.
Now, in most cases, if you’re over 13 years of age, with your height being at least 5’3” and your shoe size being 9 or up, you would likely want to go for a full-sized skateboard deck which too is 5’3” or larger. However, there’s even more to consider than just that.
If you’re looking to perform a lot of advance tricks, you would likely be more comfortable with a skateboard deck sized 7.5” to 8”. Similarly, if the skating pools or parks is where you’re usually going to be, 8.0” to 8.25” may turn out to be the ideal size for you.
Finally, for old school stuff and just cruising around, you can consider a very large skateboard deck size of 8.25” and larger. However, it’s important to note here that these are general guidelines and you may want to put in some effort and thought into finding out what’s going to work best for you.
