How to choose your skateboard?
The board universe includes many disciplines. Among them, skateboarding is undoubtedly the oldest urban board sport. To adapt to different practices, the skate to be assembled can be personalized from A to Z, starting with the skateboard , which must be chosen according to several criteria.
What are the criteria for choosing your skateboard?
It is obvious that the design of the skateboard is very important. But it is also and above all necessary to choose a material which will adapt perfectly to your practice and your habits.
Choose the width of the skateboard
Unlike some board sports, like snowboarding, the size of the rider doesn't really matter when choosing a board . This is also the case for its length, which is usually 80 cm (31.5 ''). The most important thing is to take into account the width of the board .
This is generally between 19 cm (7.5 '') and 21 cm (9.0 ''), and should be chosen according to your sporting practice. If you are, for example, a fan of street skateboarding , a small board of 8.0 ''to 8.5 ''will be sufficient for the big street with jumps of gaps or other, but also for the skatepark and the curve.
A thinner board will be particularly recommended for street and flat, while a board over 8 ''will be more suitable for ramps, vertical skating , or in swimming pools or bowls.
The concave: a platform adapted to the position of your feet
The concave of the skateboard deck is this curve that we find on the sides when looking at the board from the side. The concave (medium, high, flat or low) will determine the position of your feet on the board. It must therefore be chosen, once again, according to your practice.
- The low (or flat) concave will appeal to lovers of halfpipe, or mini ramp. Its stability is higher than other models;
- The medium concave adapts to the desires of many riders, because it is easy to turn over, while offering good stability;
- The concave high , with its well-defined curves, is perfect for performing technical flips.
All these criteria obviously remain advice, but they do not correspond to any standard. Each rider is thus free to choose the skateboard that suits him best. Choosing a skateboard is above all personal and will depend on individual taste.
