What width Skateboard Deck do I need?
Choosing the right size skateboard deck is never easy. There is one thing which has helped up size decks over the years. Inches, all decks are measured in inches. For example 8.00” or 8.25” these numbers relate to how wide the skateboard is. Typically the smaller your feet the smaller deck you should start with. For example, a size UK9 shoe would be well suited to an 8.25” deck. This will allow for ease of turning, plenty of room to move your feet whilst skating and when & if you get around to learning flip tricks it’ll provide enough room to catch your kickflips. Though a lot of sizing comes down to personal preference. Through skating your friend's boards, trying new sizes and just skating in general you’ll quickly determine which size you like. Some people never settle and will continuously change the size of the skateboard they skate.
