Would 7.6" trucks be okay for a 7.3" deck?
« on: August 24, 2016, 07:47:26 PM »
I've been interested in skating for 10 years so I'm finally buying a proper skateboard. I'm short and lightweight so I believe a 7.3" deck is ideal. I'm trying to buy all the parts from the same website, but the shortest width they have for trucks is 7.6", and I was wondering if that would work out with the width of my deck. Thanks!

look into thunder 143's, or some of the lower numbered Ace trucks.
You think he just rolled out of bed and b/s 360 mannied the roselyn banks?

My 3 year old has a 7.3 anti hero with venture 5 lows. Unless you're 3, get a bigger board.

Warehouseskateboards says "Mid-size Deck width: 7.3" – Deck length: 29" For skaters 9 to 12 years old between 4'5" and 5'2" tall who wear size 7-8 shoes"

I'm 5'2" 110 lbs and wear size 7-8 shoes so I figured that would be the best. I think I'd prefer a board that is lighter and smaller because I'm a beginner.

Get a 7.5 or 7.75. Those 7.3 minis are going to be way too short in length. They're made for little kids.
