A longboard is roughly a widened skateboard, where both trucks sit in reverse and the wheels are bigger and softer. This makes the longboard a very comfortable vehicle that can handle all types of asphalt.
Sports longboarding has grown in Europe. But here in the north we have also discovered the fun with adrenaline and high speeding through the city. It may be on the way to school or down the steepest hill. It is not a prerequisite to have skateboarding experience to learn to stand on a longboard. It is a long and wide board which, unlike other boards, gives a lot of stability. As a beginner you can simply choose one of the larger boards that offer extra high stability. Or choose a quality board because all doors are open in relation to cruising, downhill and freeride.
A longboard for cruising often has the form of a surfboard (pintail). It has a medium flex that makes it comfortable to ride on, combined with soft trucks that makes it easier to get around the bend. The Cruiser Longboard usually has a very eye-catching design, aimed at the skater, who cruises in style and just wants to have fun.
A longboard for freeride is a twintip and can drive both ways. For Freeride, it's about performing a series of spins and tricks while sliding, making it a lot more advanced than cruising. The deck is often without flex and the wheels are small and hard, which allows you to drive quickly and provide stability when you slide. The Freerideboard is for those looking for their next board and wants to learn to slide - or for beginners who want a board that they can develop.
A longboard to downhill is asymmetrical and incredibly stable. Downhill is a discipline where it's about driving down the hill as quickly as possible. This enables speeds up to 100 km / h! Therefore, the board must be incredibly stable, without flex, with large soft wheels and hard trucks. Downhillboards are for you who loves high speeds.
A longboard for freestyle has kickstails, so you can pop the board up from the ground and make different tricks. The deck can be both flexible and firm. The wheels are often smaller and medium-sized, which gives the board speed and makes it easy to maneuver. The Freestyle Longboard caters to you who stand between the choice of a skateboard and longboard. With the freestyle board you get the best of both worlds.
