How to choose your skateboard Elbow pad size

How do I know my elbow pads size for skateboarding?

A good fit in your elbow protection pad will ensure full protection and the ability to move your arms the way you want to. Too tight elbow pads will limit the ability to bend your arm.

Step 1: Measure your arm

Like with all size charts it starts with properly measuring your arms, you will only need a soft measuring tape or a string with a ruler, and 2 minutes of your time.

  1. Wrap a soft tape measure around the center of your elbow.
  2. Measure around your outstretched arm, either at
    1. the middle of your elbow
    2. at the top or
    3. at the bottom of your arm where the pad will rest

If you do not have a tape measure, you can use a string and measure it against a ruler.

Step 2: Choose your size

Use the chart to convert the measurement of your arm and your weight to your elbow pad size

Step 3: Fit your Elbow pads

Fit the elbow pads you would like to purchase. The pads should feel tight so they don’t slide but still leave enough room so you can bend your arms.
