If you are under 16, it's better that you choose a bigger size as you will continue to grow up: then you can enjoy your board much longer.
If you are tall and rather light, choose your board according to your size.
On the other hand, if you are rather well-built, choose it based on your weight.
- What is carbon?
- Carbon is synonymous with efficiency: it gives high responsiveness capabilities to the board. This liveliness makes it harder to control though. Also, its black color gives a magnificent technical and aesthetic effect to the board.
- How thick should my Lagoa or my Custom board be?
- A thin skimboard is easier to manoeuvre.
- The thicker the skimboard, the more stable.
- How much should my Custom board weigh?
- A regular weight board is easier to control, and it’s suitable for not so experienced riders.
- A very light board is way more reactive, and is more appropriate for experienced riders.
- What kind of rails should my Custom board have?
- Boxy rails give your board more stability.
- A skimboard with sharp rails is easier to manoeuvre.
- Intermediate rails are a happy medium between boxy and sharp rails.
