What is longboarding?

Longboarding is like skateboarding, only on longer boards and often sees people riding downhill at high speed. A longboard also has more stability, traction and durability due to larger wheel size and lower wheel durometers.

  • Most longboarders hang out in groups of like-minded people and it’s a gret way to meet new people and friends.
  • Longboards are lightweight and easy to carry around so they offer a good form of self-propelled transport. Longboarders travel faster than walkers, for example.
  • Longboarding saves you time and money, as well as helping to conserve the environment because they do not cause pollution.
