I would go with an 8 if you plan on riding street or park at all, or even doing flip tricks. I have a size 13 foot and I only ride an 8. Anything bigger than that just feels like a boat. If vert and bowls is all you wanna do, then the bigger decks will be fine. The Indy's are a good choice for trucks since they make some of the widest ones out there. You may also want to look at Gullwing, and Destructo. As for the wheels, again, it depends on terrain. If bowls and vert only, then something along the lines of a 56 or 58mm is fine. I personally like a 54mm. I find it to be a good size for all around riding. Works in vert, park, and street. As for softness (durometer), again, it all depends on what you plan to primarily ride. Softer for ramps, harder for street. Skateboarding is very different from longboarding. The same rules just don't apply to both.
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
