About longboard skateboards
Put simply, a longboard is a skateboard with a deck longer than 33". They have become increasingly popular over the years, and appeal to many people because they are easy and fun to ride. Even if you've never been on a skateboard before, you can learn to ride a longboard in no time. Longboards are fully customizable to fit exactly what you want out of your skating experience. Cruiser, downhill skateboard, and slalom are all types of longboard.
Many people ride longboards for transportation--their maneuverability and speed make them ideal for commuting to class, or simply cruising around. Compared to a traditional street skateboard, longboard decks are constructed and shaped to give riders a wider, more stable stance when cruising, carving, or riding downhill. In addition to deck size, longboard wheels are typically larger and softer than that of shortboards, which makes for a smoother ride. Longboards are also used competitively for slalom and downhill racing because of their speed capabilities.
