The average size board is 7.75, now if your going to be vert skating or getting a great deal of speed (like down hill) it would be better to go with a wider board for stability. And so you dont get speed wabble. So the best thing to do is go look at a couple boards and stand on them to find which is more comfortable for you. My personal favorite for boards is a blank mini logo, I love mini logos. They are great boards. And i also like zeros. They are more expensive boards, but they are very much worth it.
Decide if you want to buy or build. If you are ready to move up to a bigger ramp then you may want to build it yourself. I do recommend you get a good set of plans and be fairly handy. Also, remember that home built ramps are usually made of wood, so you should cover it with a tarp when not in use. If you decide not to build you can buy cheap skate ramps for nearly any skill level. To save the most money, know what you want before you take out your wallet.
Even though skate shoes or boots are made to be a hard wearing specialist athletic shoe, they have also turn into a fashion statement. Theyre now readily available for men, women and children, everyone has the possibility to look good and at an easily affordable cost. Different gangs of skateboarders prefer different brands of skate shoe which helps to add some diversity when watching the sport. You could possibly be put off by the price tag of leading skate shoes or boots but remember theyre an investment. Skate shoes and boots are built tough so they are going to not need replacing as often. They are generally triple stitched together with extra thick material to avoid ripping whilst been put through the rigors of skateboarding.
I would like to know how long an experienced skate boarder could stand with his eyes closed? A sports physician for the Olympics told me the Chinese Gymnasts had a hard time standing for 20 seconds with their eyes closed. One last comment, skate boarders are athletes. An athlete needs the ability to function correctly. This is directly related to how the brain, and neurology function. This is directly related to nutrition. It is rare to see an over weight kid skate boarding. Its as unlikely as an older person picking up the sport.
