What Skateboard Size Should You Get? - Skateboards Size Guide

Cruiser, longboards or Electric Skateboards – what size should I get? Not tough to imagine why a dilemma prevails over the skateboard size exists. You keep looking for the 'expert' to say it, but they say it's personal preferences that should inspire your choice of a skateboard. Does that mean they're avoiding your direct question? It's not true! 


Let's get you through the skateboards size guide with a better understanding. 


Personal preferences over technical tricks or ledges or big bowls or handrails vary from person to person. You can't be the 'other' person and pick a skateboard best suited for their purpose, right? So, first things first, consider your shoe size and a proportional board to match. How? 


If you wear a shoe size between 6.5" -9.0", a board of deck width 7.5" -8.0" is ideal for you. Similarly, people wearing shoes larger than 9.5" should opt for boards with a deck between 8.0" and 8.5" or more. 


If you are a newbie or a parent trying to help your kid, you should go for a broader deck like 8.25" -9.0" as it provides a comfortable and stable platform for rides or cruises. Smart tricks can work for you if you keep learning and practicing them.
