Boards are usually made of wood. The highest quality you can get is Canadian maple. Other types of wood present more affordable options.
The cheapest option are boards made of PVC or other plastic material. Aside from price, their advantage lies also in high durability. However, we recommend them mainly for beginners, only occasional riders and children. They are also not really suitable for stunts. The exception are penny boards, where the majority of products is made of plastic.

|Number of deck layers
Boards are usually made of 5 to 10 layers. The more layers the board has, the more durable it is. However, the layers also add to the board's weight. Advanced riders choose the number of layers according to previous experience.
For beginners, we recommend boards with 7-9 layers, which presents a good compromise between weight and durability.
These days, most skateboard, penny board and longboard wheels are usually made of the same material - polyurethane (PU) with various admixtures. It's because these wheels have good riding qualities and are resistant to damage. Wheels made of PVC are recommended mainly for children. Their advantage is a low price.

The thickness of the board goes hand in hand with the number of layers and material used. The thicker the board, the more durable it is. However, it's also heavier.
To beginners, we recommend using boards of average thickness, starting with a good compromise between weight and durability.
