    I think they look stupid as hell. But I've always wanted a skateboard for transportation means. Maybe this is my calling.

    Man, I have a longboard and use it often. It's so good for getting around places. I like to ride it as loose as it can go.

    Looks sick. How is it compared to a normal board. I got a normal one with longboard wheels and trucks.
    Get a small longboard. It's like a skateboard on steroids.

    Saw this thread and had to join in. I've been longboarding for about 2~3ish years now and I've recently got about 10 of my friends into it. I love speedboarding but am working on building a new speedboard, My s9 Bombhills just isnt good enought. Heres a vid of me going down a pretty bigg hill in my town.

    The Hill.



    The Video.

    Haha, that car behind you must have been pissed not being able to pass! Looks awesome though, we don't have huge hills or any elevation really in Florida.

    That can't have been any more than 30mph... even so, it's still impressive that you did that on an S9.

    I use it to get around easy, because of the pavement here skateboards sound like a fucking stampede and ride really rough.The wide wheels make it alot easier to ride.

    I think the hardest concept in Longboarding is being able to do tricks on your board, being able to move out of dip and standing position and walk around your board while it's moving. I fell a few times today trying to do a cross walk and put my leg off to do a wood chop.

    You can't give tips on what to ride. You have to experiment and see what feels best for you.

    No problem my friend, I want to get as much people as I can to have this wonderful hobby. When I went to pick my board, I knew I wanted it as soon as I saw it. You just get a feeling on what kind of board you want.

    Why do people always quit after they get hurt? I've already chipped a kneecap and torn cartilage in a few places, but I'm still riding. I literally have scars all over my body.

    A "Flowboard" as they're called. I had one. They suck.

    I ride a 55" Luke Nosewalker from Sector 9. I know Sector 9 takes a lot of piss these days for some reason, but it's a great board.


    Mostly I'm a hill bomber with lots of carving and occasionally slides. I can do a little bit of dancing but I suck at it.

    I don't like Sector 9 for a couple reasons; primarily because once, and only once, while I was pulling a coleman my S9 board literally snapped right down the middle as I stood back up. No warning, no creaking, nothing, it just broke. Costed me a board and a chipped kneecap.

    Wow, yikes.

    I do want a shorter board for slides and the like. This one is so huge and has very little flex.

    And the hardware that came on it was pretty crap.

    I don't see anything wrong with your hardware; the only problem I'd have with that setup is your tiny wheels.

    Longboarding is fun.

    Unfortunately there's a lot of nooby kids who walk around with them all the time for image yet hardly ride them, honestly, fuck off. It's generally best to learn how to skateboard first, because they are a bit harder to control, and they'll teach you to control a long board a bit better.

    I'd like to see someone up and snatch it out of their hands, optionally smack them with it, and then glide off down a hill.

    The tiny wheels are obnoxious but I can't get any new ones at the moment. I drained the bank account buying dual monitors.
    The bearings that came on it were just horrid, and the trucks are pretty annoying. They're really soft.

    But for a starter board the hardware isn't terrible.

    Which is the exact reason why these longboards intrigue me.

    I don't care for skateborder shit like kickflips and ollies. I just want to glide around without having to push the ground every 5 seconds. Is there a specific type of longboard that allows that?
    yeh hated when skateboarding was the greatest thing, all I wanted to do was just chill and cruise

    Holy shit. I never knew about this, it looks fucking awesome. I want to try this out, except I live in the middle of London so there's not exactly many places to do it, and people would think you look a bit stupid on this funky surfboard-on-wheels riding around in boring old London.

    I tried normal skating once but I hated it since all the roads near me are old and bumpy so the skateboard would only go about six or seven feet before needing to be pushed again.

    Also I snowboard regularly.

    Any tips for a beginner, where are good places to skate?
