What size of skateboard to choose? (video)

What size board? How to choose a skateboard by Michael Relevant

What is the most common skateboard deck size?

Styles of skateboard deck


Shortboards are the shortest style board and are designed and shaped for getting air and performing tricks. If you’re leaning towards street or park skating, a shortboard style deck will be a perfect match for you.


Cruiser boards often have kicktails, but are more designed for simply cruising around. The decks are typically mid-length. Cruisers are versatile and maneuverable, making them good for cruising the streets.

Old School

Old school boards typically have a flat nose and kicktails. They are usually asymmetrical, with a wider nose. Old school boards are an awesome choice for skating pools, ramps, or carving the streets.


If you’re not interested in doing tricks and want a skateboard to push around on for transportation, longboard skateboards, or cruisers, are a great option. Some longboards are specifically designed for downhill racing. Downhill longboards tend to have a symmetrical shape, sit lower to the ground, and have wheel cutouts, which allow larger wheels to be used.
