READ BELOW FOR DETAILS. This tutorial is really intended for very avid skaters who are sponsored by shops or better.

For great prices on Longboard and Skateboard equipment we recommend

Check out this Dwindle catalog (link below) that explains the importance of balancing a board. So, if you don't want to take our word for it, then you can certainly not believe what one the largest and most popular skateboard brand distributors has to say about balancing a skateboard.

At a beginner level it's very difficult to flip a board consistently the same every time, so they may not notice the feel of a balanced board.

Advanced skaters can feel when a board is not flipping right and can spend hours or days trying to get a trick on video. Pro's can notice differences in decks right away, but are better at adjusting to new decks, but still deal with the frustrations of bad flips.

Good, even flips are extremely important during competitions, when each trick has to be landed. Balancing a board evens out the weight eliminating bad flipping caused by the boards uneven areas.
Pro's do this but keep it a secret to their advantage. I personally know who does!
This is not going to make you all of a sudden land any trick you attempt. You still have to learn the mechanics of a trick and practice how to perform it.

Balancing only assists by putting all the trouble of landing a trick on the skater, because they will know it's not the board that is the issue.

Decks are different, even if you choose the same width, length, and wheel base.
The wood has different densities all over, and absorbs glues/resins unevenly. The result is an unbalanced board in different areas every time you get a new deck. This is why you can get a new deck and have a horrible day skating.

Balancing a deck each time you replace one will flip the same way your last deck did! YES IT'S TRUE. A balanced board flips evenly, smooth, and consistent when performed right. Novice skaters to pro's will really feel the benefits.
Balancing a skateboard will become a new standard in skateboarding.
