Morriski_Check out skateboarding made simple volume 1 by Aaron Kyro, it teaches you step by step how to work up from an ollie to a kickflip/heelflip and everything inbetween and goes through each step really thoroughly, it really helped me
NEPTRgo ahead and get yerself a welcom deck you won't regret it, I guarantee it
I mostly ride transition and I would highley recommend this for a sorta grippy concrete park, if your home park is a bit slicker id get a little softer wheel...
this is my setup for reference
1kewldewdYeah welcome is the only thing I ride. I have three a 9.1 an 8.4 and a 8 I would definitely get around an 8.5 to start. It is super comfy having something wider and makes a lot of things easier when your learning especially tranny IMO. It is not ideal for flip tricks but like just Ollie's and drops and rails are way more fun on a wide board. I would also recommend rails like the board above. They make everything slide way more consistent and nice
mirozAny recommendations for a street deck? Used to skate, thinking bout getting back into it but I know nothing.
The_WoatDude that's pretty small. I wouldn't go under 8" unless if I was specifically trying to learn flip tricks. But really, any board can do flip tricks, it just takes more effort if they're wider.
