Skateboard measurements and, specifications?

Complete Skateboards are a great way to get a great quality full setup that's ready to ride straight out of the box.
Having said that, there are various different parts of the skateboard that need to be taken into account when thinking about the right size. They are as follows:
Deck Width: The deck is the part of skateboard that your feet stand on. It is the heart and soul of the board and needs to be a good fit for your feet so that your child is comfortable and safe while using their skateboard.
Deck Length: How long your deck is, is dependent on your height as well. Smaller children need a shorter deck, so there is less board that they have to manage and control.
Wheelbase: The wheelbase measurement on a skateboard is the distance between the wheels. This is quite standard across the boards and will adapt as per what size the deck is.
