Choosing Kids' First Skateboard: What to Look For

When choosing a skateboard for your child, it's essential to consider their age, height, shoe size, and riding style preferences. Younger or smaller children generally require narrower and shorter boards that are easier to handle and control. Additionally, it's crucial to ensure that your child's feet fit comfortably on the deck without any overhangs or restrictions, as this could affect their balance and overall performance. Ultimately, finding the right skateboard size for your child involves some trial and error. It may be helpful to consult with our knowledgeable skate shop team - give us a call or visit one of our stores for a test ride. Remember that proper sizing will not only enhance your child's skateboarding experience but also contribute to their safety while riding. So take your time in understanding skateboard sizing before making a purchase, and watch your child enjoy their skateboarding adventures to the fullest!

How Early to Start Skateboarding?

There’s no strict age for kids to start learning skateboarding. As soon as the kids develop good motor skills and balance, they can hop on a board. Typically, children aged 5 to 6 are ready to begin their skateboarding journey.

Kids Skateboard: How to Choose the Right Size

Deck Width

The width of the skateboard deck is measured from one edge to the other. It typically ranges from 7.2 inches to 8.5 inches for kids' skateboards. Smaller children may feel more comfortable with narrower decks, while older or taller kids might prefer wider ones.

Deck Length

The length of the skateboard deck is measured from the tip of the nose to the tail. Kids' skateboards usually range from 28 inches to 32 inches in length. Shorter boards are easier to maneuver, making them suitable for younger and beginner riders. Longer boards provide more stability and control, making them ideal for older or more experienced riders.


The wheelbase refers to the distance between the two sets of wheels mounted on the skateboard deck's underside. It affects how easily a board turns and maneuvers. For kids, wheelbases typically range from 12 inches to 15 inches, with shorter wheelbases offering tighter turns and longer ones providing smoother rides.
