    That's about the same size i was when i started skating, I had a deck that was 7.62 wide but i only skate street, so, i would advise you to be in the 7.8-8.0 range. if you plan on doing more park go wider. Get Indy trucks, Bones red bearings and blank wheels. The Deck brand is of personal preference, depending on your experiences with the brands. Buy any hardware, i buy shorties silver-ado's because i don't really care about it being colored it's just gunna rub off anyways.

    Dude you are literally the same size as I am, in everything. *Twilight Zone Music*.

    It won't cost you anywhere near $200 here in the U.S.
    Maybe like $120 if you really want to splurge.
    For decks I would suggest a Girl, Enjoi, Almost, or Cliche. For size anything between 7.5-7.75 would be decent for your (which is also my) shoe size and wieght.

    Trucks: Destructo's, Thunders or Independent's. Make sure they match your board width.

    Wheels: Autobahn's or spitfire's between 52mm-50mm 99a-101a

    Bearings: Can't go wrong with anything made by Bones. From my experiance this is where you should pay for the best. Bones Reds-Bones Swiss Labyriths depending on what you want to spend.

    Grip tape:Mob, Jessup or Black Magic

    I hope this helped.

    Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

    i've had a lot of bad experiences with all of Spitefire's products, i wouldn't recommenced them. for deck brands i would say, Plan B, Habitat, Cliche, Alien Workshop and expedition. They have all been very reliable.
