Which Fingerboard Deck Width & Shape Should I Ride?

If you’re wondering which fingerboard deck width you should ride, here’s everything you need to know about the width options that Teak Tuning offers:



29mm Wide Decks

Background: Fingerboards started at 26mm wide back in the early 2000s and have gradually increased in width over the years. Even though 29mm is no longer the most popular option, some fingerboarders still love to use narrow width 29mm decks. 

Shapes Available: Standard popsicle shape

Teak Tuning Decks: 29mm Polymer Composite Deck 

Best Trucks to Use: Teak Tuning Allen Key Trucks

Helpful Tip: The width of your deck and trucks should be the same (or close to them same width).

32mm Wide Decks

Background: 32mm decks have been popular for many years and are considered to be the standard width. This is a great place to start fingerboarding.

Shapes Available: Standard popsicle shape, Boxy shape, Pixelated shape 

Teak Tuning Decks: Teak 32mm deck collection includes blank and exotic decks, heat transfer graphic decks, Boxy shaped decks, and pixelated shaped decks.

Best Trucks to Use: 32mm Prodigy Trucks, Prodigy Pro Plus Trucks, and Prodigy Swerve Trucks, are the best options, but 32mm Spacer Trucks will also work for riders on a budget. 

Helpful Tip: Most upgraded 32mm Teak trucks come with lock nuts and a free set of Pro Duro Bubble Bushings or other tuning.
