Does your weight matter when buying a skateboard?
The weight of a skateboarder does matter when skateboarding. Weight plays a vital role in riding and landing on the board. If you haven’t noticed, a lot of (if not most) skaters are skinny. … The truth is that your weight will affect how you perform and land various flip tricks.
Is a heavier skateboard better?
Heavier boards feel more solid for me, and don’t affect your tricks at all really. Lighter boards might feel easier to flip, but it’s all the same at the end of the day. Skate what you like!
