I like zero boards. I’m not a skater, I just like the way they look. Oh, also bakers look cool. To me it’s just a matter of opinion. Go for one that looks good to you.

I have an enjoi. With the panda on it. I like them because they’re light and stylish without usng excessive amounts of graphics.

its all about personal opinions. I used to have a blind, then i snapped it, then got a darkstar, then got a flip. All three were pretty good, the blind was alright, the darkstar felt very nice and smooth, and the flip was nice as well

there are 3 main types of boards lolly boards (stuff you get from superceners e.g. Wallmart k mart) then practie boards such as element then there’s good boards like blacklabel alien workshop and mystery

I’ve always skated Element decks. They’ve always felt great to me and had alot of pop. You’ll get a good board at any skate shop.

Just talk to the person working and try out a bunch by just standing on them on the floor. Make sure to get a size (width) that you’re comfortable with too.

I like 7.75”. Seems like right in the middle to me. Nothing over 8” or under 7.5” for your first deck.

The best skateboard is whats best for you. I like a lot of concave and a whole lotta pop. Another major factor is the wood used in the deck. I recommend anything from Kayo Corp. (Rasa Libre, DGK, Organica, REAL, Crooked, Anti Hero). Each board has its own shape and personality. I got a board to ride in the rain, one for parks, one for daily street, and one for drunk cruises late night. Id stay away from Birdhouse, Hook Ups, Alien Workshop, Element, or any other major, mass distributed MALL SHOP brand decks… THey have horrible wood and tend to snap like twigs.

Dont worry about how heavy your board is. Make sure you got good wood, good bearings for the wheels, and some good griptape (Blackmagic, etc..). The trucks should be sturdy (I ride Thunder or Independent——tend to be heavier style trucks) but Ventures or GrindKings are fine too…
