Mini-Cruisers + Surfskates
Cruisers come in many shapes and sizes. At their shortest, they are known as ‘mini-cruisers’ and can be smaller than a standard street skateboard, ranging from roughly 28 to 35 inches in length. These small boards are very nimble, great for commuting, and often have a kick tail (an upturned end that allows for ollies, flip tricks and dropping off curbs).
Slightly smaller than a street board with narrower trucks mean it's a little more challenging to ride to begin, BUT still great for beginners as they are highly maneuverable boards with bigger wheels to crush sidewalks, bumps, pebbles and other debris.
Longboard Cruisers + Dancers
Longboards come in multiple styles for cruising or downhill skating. To start we're gonna assume you're looking to cruise and get the hang of things before bombing the hills.
The most iconic cruiser shape is the pintail (see Sector 9 below). It's a long board, usually ranging from 38 to 42 inches in length, with wide trucks and bigger wheels. Pintails usually have a lot of flex and they feel bouncy, allowing a lower standing platform based on the riders weight. The long length of a pintail allows riders to lay down carves which simulates the feeling of surfing on land. Due to the longer wheelbase, a pintail is less responsive than other boards. Though this lack of response may not seem great, they can still be responsive when set up correctly.
Street boards are the most traditional skateboard. With some traditional kingpin trucks and hard wheels, a classic 'popsicle' shape board is perfect for learning tricks, skating ramps or bowls. Make sure you check your ideal size deck using the size guide above
Street boards are ideal for skateparks, bowls, stairs, rails, and flip tricks.
