Simple games usually invite a lot of fun and this is the case with skateboarding. You need to know the types of skateboards such as mini longboards. After knowing the types of games with different decks, the question then is how to choose a good board? What should be considered when choosing a skateboard deck? Skateboard boards are made of several layers of wood that are glued together and then pressed together. A good type of wood to use is maple wood. Maple wood is a type of wood that can withstand four seasons. Good staying power and not too heavy. The size of the board is usually adjusted to the size of the skateboarder’s feet and body size. For example, if his shoe size is 40, then a suitable board size for him is between 7.5-7.8 or 8.0 inches Summit Board.
The following is an explanation of choosing a skateboard deck size according to shoe size: Shoe size 40 — The deck size is between 7.5-7.8 or 8.0 inches. Shoe size 41: Deck sizes between 7.75-8.0 inches. Shoe size 42: Deck size is between 7.8-8.1 inches. Shoe size 43: Deck size is between 8.0-8.25 inches. But it also depends on the type of skateboarding. Street people tend to use smaller boards between 7.5-8.25 inches because it’s easier to do flip tricks. As for transitional games, such as in a bowl or pool, usually tend to use large boards between 8.25-9.0 inches because the game prioritizes foot comfort on the board when playing in transition areas, such as in the bowl. The skateboard deck also has supports between the plank and wheels. The part called the truck has a suspension that serves as a bearing for turning. The harsh suspension generally makes the board more stable.
Truck size also affects the ease of driving the board. A board with a short truck width is more difficult to drive, while too long makes it difficult to turn. In terms of altitude, tall trucks are suitable to be paired with large wheels, while low trucks are more stable when sliding. How about the wheels? Typically street type boards have wheel sizes between 49 mm and 54 mm. If the game is played at the skatepark, the wheels that are used can be bigger, as well as on longboards that use 65 mm to 70 mm wheels. The reason is, the bigger the wheels, the faster the skateboard will slide.
