    Default How do you measure kicks?

    I searched.
    I assumed its from the bp holes to the edge of the board but there's new and old school and the difference is 10mm..
    In the editor reviews in this site they post the length of the kicks from the bolts, but drop throughs use old school and some top mounts use new. Board mfgs usually post length, width and WB only.

    This feels like a dumb question but I honestly don't know..

    It think its actually a good question as I prefer symmetrical double kick decks. I always assumed the kick was measured from the tip of the kick to where it meets the foot platform of the deck - not tip to bolts.

    If tip to bolts are you measuring in a straight line to the tip or holding the tape measure flat? I always measured with the tape measure flat from tip of kick to foot platform. Going out to the bolts would add length and a straight line from the bolts to the tip would provide a different measure again.

    Flat from the edge of the holes to the edge of the kicks. The angle would make for a discernible difference, unless its a skateboard, or something like the dk penguin.
    I'm leaning towards using old school. Its closer to the edge of the bp so it makes more sense?

    I usually use complex formula consisting of enjoyment, depravity, social outrage, and remorse.

    If you throw in some disregard and a whole lot of indifference it will work out better.
