Yes. But, there are exceptions to the rule. I find that some people are more comfortable with different set-ups, so do what feels right to you. You'll find that over time you will change things, as you progress. I also recommend mid-track skateboard trucks for a wider wheelbase, but I skated for years with regular skates. The downside of regular skate trucks is that you cannot grind.
