Skateboards are usually selected based on board width – depending on the person's size and intended use. If you are selecting a board for display, choose the size that best fits your wall. For riding, though, here is a handy chart:


Selected for...

7.5" to 8.0" Standard adult board for street use and technical tricks
8.0" to 8.25" Typically used in pools, ramps, and parks
8.25" to 8.5" Vert, pools, and cruising
Longboard Most stable board for cruising and racing
