    Default Most common skateboard size?

    I was wondering what is the most common skateboard size?, when i ride mine
    (7.5) for like a mile, the muscle in the mid of my feet hurt, i think my board is too small, and i wear size 10.5 btw, should i get 7.75 ?
    also heard that 7.75 is the most common but im not sure.
    although it could be something else that made my feet hurt?

    (unrelated)
    my mood are good cause i just land my first ollie stationary

    for a while 7.75 was the common size but it seems like 8 is more of the standard these days.

    I wear 10.5 as well,and i ride 7.75 to 8,and they never hurt my feet.It all depends on what you like to skate,If you skate everything like me,i would recommend something larger so you have more flick for flip tricks.But if you skate more vert,i would say something smaller.

    that's my opinion

    I only street skate, is there a big difference in feeling from 7.5,7.75, and 8 ?, like maybe i can do some stationary ollie but if i switch to 7.75 or 8 would it be harder for me to do it ?

    Next time you get a board try a 7.75, it should be more comfortable.

    I wear 6.5 (yes small feet) and I ride 7.63 to 7.8.

    I also got 10.5 Ft and I'm riding a 7.5 and I like it a lot, but I am probably going to switch to a slightly larger deck next.

    i got size 9.5 and i just bought a 8.0 deck from a friend. it's very hard to get used to it because before i had a 7.5
    you should get an 8 they're the most common size deck nowadays

    No, i think if you go a size bigger your feet will have more room to do ollies.I never go above an 8,but it's really about personal preference.Go around your local skatepark or skate spot and ask some skaters if they have a 8.0 board.If they do,ask if you can try it out.That's how i got to know what i wanted to skate.

    wow,i wear 3 sizes smaller than you and i don't feel comfortable with 7.5 decks for some reason.I guess i just like more foot room.
