The classic skateboard
is comprised of a wooden deck usually ranging from 7-8.5 inches in width dictated by personal preference. Wider decks are traditionally used in bowl and vert skating while skinnier shapes grew in popularity during the 1990s and early 2000s as street skateboarding
took off and people wanted to be able to flip and spin boards more easily. Nowadays many street skaters opt for wider boards around 8-8.5 as the bigger surface area allows for greater board control creativity in tricks and stability in landings. The Board Basement's range of Girl Skateboarding
