I follow Paul Schmitt on Insta and he has been talking about wheelbase and the ideal length to match your height is ‘a foot and a fist’ ie the length of your foot and then your fist. I am 6ft 5in with size 11 feet and I thought my current board had quite long wheelbase (certainly longer than my previous board) but the gap between the trucks is much less than ‘foot and fist’ .
I have 8.5 wide but I tried to measure wb and realised I have no idea where it starts or finishes. I expected wb would be 14 or 15 but the gap between the trucks (back of front truck to front of back truck) is only 13 so I figured that cannot be right?
Any idea about ideal ratio for tall person or which boards have long wheelbase? At what point does a normal board become a dreaded longboard haha?
Here is my board
