Ask ScooterDad: i I have a 11.5 Wide shoe and ride park but do grind rails once in a while. I'm also 6'1 would a 22.5 by 4.75 deck be OK for park tricks park riding and occasional grinds?

Unfortunately, I can't really answer that for you. It's all about personal feel. You're going to have to find one and stand on it to get a feel for how it fits you. Some people prefer smaller decks, some prefer larger decks. Whatever you prefer, it's not going to prevent you from being able to ride park or street. If I had to guess though, I'd say that deck will probably suit you just fine as it's a pretty big deck and should be very stablefor someone your height.
