Skate decks buying guide

If you buy a deck, you will receive only the wooden part of a skateboard, and the grip tape. If you are looking for a complete skateboard, take a look at our Complete Skates section, where you can choose among a large selection of skates ready to be sent and used. If you prefer to choose each part separately, remember that you can set up your own complete skate with the deck you prefer and with a 15% discount using our Skate Builder.

Skate board Grip tape

To be able to use your new deck properly, it is absolutely necessary to apply a grip tape on it. We always send a free grip with the purchase of a deck in our skate shop online. The only exception is with boards over 9” wide, since the grip have a standard size of 9x33 inches, so it would not be large enough. 

We have a large selection of grips available, there are many colors and designs. Visit our skateboard grip tape section to see them all and choose yours.


Skateboard Decks sizes

The size of a skate deck is one of the most important things you should care about when choosing which board to buy. You need to select the width that best suits you, depending on the kind of skateboarding you want to practice, the size of your feet, and your height. All the decks have the width measurement specified in inches in the description of the product, although you can also use our filters (in the left column) to be able to search only among those that will work well for you. 

Here you can check our table with the recommended deck sizes for each feet size, which is usually a factor related to height too. This is only an initial recommendation, among that sizes you should choose depending on the style of skateboarding you want to practice. For street and technical tricks, the narrower measures are better, as it will be easier to move your skate. For walk and for ramps, wider boards are preferred as they provide greater stability. 

Anyway, within these margins, which are the most common, the decision is a matter of taste. Ideally, you should try several sizes until you find the one you feel most comfortable with.  

 

Feet Size Deck's Width (inches)
< 35 (and children up to 6 years old) 7.0 - 7.5
35-39 7.5 - 7.8
40-42 7.8 - 8.0
42-44 8.0 - 8.25
44 or larger 8.1 - 8.6

 

Stakeboard decks concaves and shapes

Skates decks are not all the same, there are made off many different materials, with different construction technologies, designs, shapes and concaces. 

The concave is the curvature of the deck on its central part, which can be very pronounced (high concave) or light (low). The purpose of the concave is that the deck has a better response and greater grip on contact with the feet. 

The shapes have different noses and tails forms. For example, “old school” decks have sharper noses and wider tails. The angle of those parts with respect to the deck can also vary, and also the shape of the curve. If you need more information about the concave and specific shapes of each brand, do not hesitate to ask us. 


Skateboard deck technology 

As you may have noticed, the differences on the prices of decks are very significant. Many times it is because of the materials and the way in which each deck is constructed. They are commonly made with seven sheets of maple. Many brands offer technical models that include various improvements in materials or type of construction, always with the aim of increasing resistance to breakage, and to reduce weight as much as possible. 

The best material for skateboards is the Canadian maple. To stick the 7 sheets of wood together, there are different glues that can be used. The best of them is epoxy resin (‘resin’ decks). Also, each brand has its own way of pressing the entire deck, which makes the price vary. 

Some of the options to make better decks are to make thinner sheets, add carbon fiber discs (or a whole sheet, or two, or one and the discs), of fiberglass, and a long etcetera. You can consult all the available technologies in our Guide of Deck’s Technologies


What are the best skateboard brands?

Some customers ask us that question every day, but there is not a single answer. The choice of a brand is something very subjective that responds to many factors that could be more or less important for each skater. Some of those factors are materials, ideology of the brand, shapes, constructions, graphics, team riders, etc. 

Some skaters are loyal to a brand for years, while others prefer to try a different brand every time they have to renew the skateboard. 

The only advice we give is that, if you really want to learn to skate seriously, you should always choose a brand specialized in skate, whit a reliable history on the market, because what we can say for sure is that there is a big difference between a deck from a skate brand and one that you can find in a toy store or a supermarket. 


Cheap Skateboard Decks

Just because it is cheap, it doesn’t mean a deck has to have a lower performance, mainly if you are not a pro yet, as long as it is from a trustworthy brand specialized in skateboarding. 

In fact, we recommend you to choose, as your first deck, one from the cheapest, because at the beginning you will not be able to appreciate the differences between it and an expensive one. 

There are some brands that care about offering cheap decks with the same quality than others, just a better price, and some other brands, more famous, also have cheaper options that are just not pro models or don’t have spectacular graphics, thus saving on cost.

And don’t forget about the English brand specialized in being the cheapest one, the favorite of those with tight budgets and quality requirements, our dear Enuff Skateboard decks. 

We always offer disscount in our outlet section, so you can see our skateboard decks for sale.

Powell Peralta

It is hard to think in a skate brand with that much history and importance in the skateboarding world.

The brand was founded by George Powell and Stacy Peralta in 1978 and grew greatly in the 80s along the popularization of the skateboarding.

But the beginnings go back many years before, when George Powell, who studied engineering, began manufacturing his first skate in the year 57, Years later, his son asked for a skate and took one of his old inventions from the garage... but the kid didn’t like it much, and told his dad that it didn’t roll well. At that moment, Powell began interested in skateboarding again. He saw the progress made in wheels with the introduction of urethane, and he started to manufacture prototypes of wheels and decks.

In the 76, he was fired from his job and moved to California to set up his skate company, and there he partnered with Peralta, who was one of the testers of his creations.

Bones Brigade. A legend team

The team was founded in the year 1979, with the name ‘Bones Brigade’. Surely one of the most incredible skate teams of all time and that most changed the skate to what we know today.

Names that were part of the team today are authentic legends like Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Ray Barbee, Mike McGill, Colin McKay, Rodney Mullen, Guy Mariano, Danny Way, Bucky Lasek, Tommy Guerrero and a long etc.

Many of them are founders of current skate companies such as Almost, Plan B, World Industries, and more.

One of the keys to success, apart from their skills as skaters, was the edition of the brand’s videos, which meant a total revolution in terms of the level of the tricks, the edition of the video, the featured music... Some famous titles are Public Domain, Ban This, Future Primitive.

In addition to the decks, Powell diversified and created wheels, and the Bones brand for wheels and bearings, that became a company that is possibly the most successful one in the market for those products.

Over the years they were together, they created the most mythical decks and designs of the industry and, so that they were not forgotten, George and Stacy joined forces to reissue them, making their famous re-issues and giving the new generations the opportunity to enjoy such famous icons as the winged ripper, the skull & sword, the Nordic skull of wellinder, the skull & snake of MacGill, and the world-famous graphics of Tommy Guerrero of the knife in flames, the dragons of Caballero and, of course, those of Tony Hawk.

In the nineties, many new skate companies were created, and that fact affected the brand. In 91 Peralta left, and the company was renamed Powell Corporation.

They got through the difficult years and today the distributor ‘Skate One’ is one of the largest and most important in the world, including brands as Powell, Powell Peralta, Bones, Mini Logo and more.

In Fillow we have a wide range of Powell Peralta material every season, always with the guaranteed minimum price.
