Deck width and length are determined by personal preference. It also is determined by the type of skating you plan to do. Wider decks (over 8” wide) are normally used for vert / ramp skating. Narrower decks (7.5” – 8.0”) tend to be used for street skating. However, there are pros, for example Andrew Reynolds, who use a wider deck for street skating. Andrew skates an 8.25” wide skateboard. Once again, it's all personal preference.
