    Default Best deck for street skateboarding?

    I guess there's not a really big difference between brands of decks.
    But i wanted to know what brand you guys think is the best for street skating, i want to know this because i'm getting a new deck soon and everyone tells me different brands...

    Thanks

    Well, if your focus is going to be street, trick-oriented skateboarding, you'll want a deck 8.0 or smaller.
    Brands aren't really important, everybody has a favorite, but I always found that I could flip DGK, Girl, and Plan B decks easier than others.

    Just get a cheap deck. Doesn't have to be a blank. I got a shut for 25 bucks at my local shop, just see if they have a bin with deals on decks or something like around here. A boards a board though I do recommend a 7.75-8.00 for the width of the board. It easier to balance on and just feels better overall.

    Any size.
    Any brand.
    It's all preference.

    I ride Alien Workshop 8.25s though.

    Go to a shop and stand on a a bunch of different decks. Try different sizes and brands, deck selection is really personal and while one person might hate the shape, another will like it. It's all preference man.
    My Ideal deck would be either a Kayo, or DLX deck, 7.75-8.00, mellow concave, small tail, big fat nose.

    I like to ride almost if I can find a big enough board from them, around an 8. All I can usually find from them are like 7.25. Mystery is a good board too.

    there are so many threads on this haha. Go to a shop and stand on decks and see what you like the most but for you you should get a 7.75 or higher. I prefer 8.0s. DLX boards and crailtap boards are my favorite. Thats real, anti hero, and krooked those are dlx. Crailtap is girl, chocolate, and skate mental. In case you didnt know already lol. Idk why though on here lots of people hate girl decks but I love them haha

    anythign realy, apart from wider boards from anti hero and creature, any old deck will do. not many decks arent suited for street at all.

    I like my enjoi. But it wore down fast.
    I don't really have a preference because I don't know what brands are good/bad. But I think you should stand on a few at the shop to feel what it's like.

    No I read it. He wants to know what we think are the best brands. Apparently I'm the only one throwing it out there that it really doesn't matter. The only big difference someone's gonna find between boards is shape and every company is going to have multiple shapes. I think anyone would be better off just finding a board that's on sale that they like the shape and size of because chances are it's going to last just as long as any other board unless you beat the shit out of it when you get mad.

    And either way you didn't write anything relevant to his question so shut it.
