Gone are the days when a “skateboard” represents just one style.
Skateboarding has evolved into many subgenres.
Here are the most popular types of skateboards.
Double kick, street popsicles are commonly used for street/transition skateboarding. They’re functional for tricks like ollies and flip tricks. Street skateboards usually have smaller and harder wheels.
Old school skateboards are inspired by the 1970s and 1980s. They often have wider, directional shapes. They’re often used for pool riding, vert, and cruising.

Bottom line is that there are a bunch of different skateboard styles. There’s no “best” style, it just comes downs to what fits your riding style.
