Park riding and street riding are two different styles within the amazing world of stunt scooter riding. Both styles require different style of parts and skateboard decks are no different.

For park riding, you'll want to go for a shorter and narrower deck so that you can act quickly with adequare responsiveness. A smaller deck will allow for agile movement and a medium to aggressive concave design improves your foot grip whilst you are in the air, prepping to land that awesome trick. 

Street riding, on the other hand, requires an especially durable deck, since you will want it to be tough enough to take on all types of terrain and surfaces that you come across. A medium deck length and standard deck width will offer you the versatility that you need; providing you with enough stability to take on all sorts of surfaces and gradients of terrain on the streets, whilst allowing you to move with adequate agility too.

Considering the scooter wheels that you already have is important when trying to decide what sort of scooter deck you should go for. This is because wheel compatibility directly impacts the overall functionality of your scooter; so just like you choose a specific deck to achieve a certain riding style, specific scooter wheels are used to achieve these same riding styles. One thing you will need to consider is the wheel size compatibility, ensuring that the deck is compatible with the wheels you currently have. 

You'll want to make sure that the axle width lines up too, to ensure the wheels sit in place sufficiently to prevent any sort of wobbling or instability. This is also the case for ensuring that the compression system fits well with your deck choice too.

Once you've got the compatibility nailed down, you can think about the style you want to go for. If you have chosen a specific style deck for either park or street riding, you can go for a wheelset where the design replicates this riding preference. 

If, however, you've gone for a cheaper deck to save some money, then you can go ahead and go for a set of scooter wheels that are more affordable too. This tends to be the common approach for beginners and younger riders especially, opting for more functional scooter parts and accessories as they progress within their scooter riding journey.



The tail and nose design of a scooter deck plays a crucial role in how certain tricks and stunts are executed. Longer tails and noses tend to offer more leverage for manual tricks, so this tends to be better suited to intermediate and advanced riders who want to shred hard and really challenge themselves. The angle of the tail and nose also makes a difference too, as a design with a stronger angle allows for easier lifting for certain tricks. 

Some decks feature a kicktail and nose with certain shapes or concave designs and these variations can affect how well the setup responds to pressure, making it an ideal choice for precise movements and tricks.  Flatter designs are better for riders who crave stability, such as beginner riders and particularly young kids who have taken up scooter riding for the first time.

If you find yourself leaning more towards longer manuals, extended tails and nose lifts might be your go to. All in all though, you will want to go for the design that suits what you prefer. Feel free to try different designs, notice the difference in how it affects your riding and go for your preference in the future.

    You'll want to go for scooter grip tape that is coarse and high quality; particularly water resistant and resistant to wear and tear.

    To maintain a stunt scooter, you really need to regularly inspect your setup as a whole. Be sure to look out for any signs of wear and tear and if the damage seems severe enough, or if it affects your riding, be sure to get the parts replaced as soon as possible. You need to also tighten your bolts and screws, lubricating moving parts on a regular basis. Be sure to clean the scooter regularly too, to remove any dirt or debris that may limit performance.
