Best Skateboard Ranking – 2023 Ranking



  •  Typically, inexpensive skateboards offer terrible value for money. This is because their manufacturers don't really care about creating a balanced product or even understand the basic requirements of the user.

  •  Therefore, in the top skateboards, I have collected models that have received numerous positive reviews from Russian users. And also prepared a short review for those who will buy their first skateboard.

What to look for when choosing the best skateboard

  •  Here's what you need to know about the signs of a poor quality skateboard:

  • plastic deck. This is the name of the upper part of the skateboard, on which the legs are placed. Instead of plastic, it is better to choose a wooden deck, it is better suited for tricks. The more layers the deck has, the stronger the board, and the heavier it is. The standard choice is a 7-layer deck.
  • plastic pendant. It is better to look for a model with a metal one that can withstand heavy loads.
  • Low quality bearings ABEC 1 and ABEC 3. It is good if the bearings are ABEC 7 or 9. ABEC 5 is also suitable. The higher the number, the more accurate the production and the better the rewind.
  • Hard plastic or super soft rubber wheels. Polyurethane wheels are best, they are a balance of grip and durability. Look for hardness between 90a and 100a, they wear out more slowly. Softer wheels are suitable for rolling on uneven surfaces, cracks and pebbles. But they are not suitable for aggressive skateboarding, as the grip and softness of the wheels reduce the ability to get the board off the ground and perform tricks.

  •  Skateboards come in different sizes. They are usually measured in width, which are 7,75 inches, 8 inches, 8,25 inches, and 9,75 inches.

  • Thinner boards (7,75 inches) will be lighter and will help with tricks.
  • Wider boards, from 8 inches, are heavier and therefore require more effort to perform tricks. But they have a lot more room on the deck for foot control and more room for trick mistakes.

  •  Street skateboards are usually about 32 inches (81 cm) long. They are curved at both ends: in the front – "knows", behind – tail. Lateral bends along the soundboard are called "concave". There are also flat, elongated longboard models, and they are 1-1,5 m long. Although longboards are more stable and faster than regular skateboards, they are more expensive and more difficult to perform tricks on them.

  •  The choice of width depends on your age, experience and the type of riding you want to do. Some people recommend choosing a deck size based on your shoe size, this is not necessarily good advice for beginners as technically you can ride any size. Your height matters.

  1. Of the best skateboard companies that have been present on the Russian market for a long time, it can be noted: Decathlon, Ridex, Razor, Penny, Leader Kids, Plank, Action, Atemi.

  •  So what is the best skateboard to buy for a beginner? Choose a skateboard based on your age and height. For a child under 10 or under 150 cm tall, experts recommend a 22-29 inch (55-74 cm) skateboard.

  •  For adult users, a full size skateboard is 30-32 inches (76-81 cm). Also, the longboard is very friendly to beginners, it moves smoothly, does not require perfect balance.

  •  But a penny board is not the best choice for a beginner. Made from colored plastic, this popular type of skateboard is better viewed as more of a toy or fashion accessory than a real skateboard. It won't let you learn or progress.

  •  And now from the theory of which skateboard is better to choose, let's move on to the direct choice of models for different riding styles and financial capabilities.
