How to Pick the Right Skateboard Deck Size

Skateboard

So... which deck size is right for you? ๐Ÿค”

Well, it mostly depends on your body measurements but there're 2 basic principles to follow:

  1. your shoe size should determine the optimal deck width
  2. deck length should be relative to your height.

Also keep in mind that deck sizes are offen represented in inches (1 inch = 2.54 cm) so you might need to convert them first.

Here's a deck size chart to get a better understanding:
