What is a Longboard Skateboard?
The history surrounding Longboards has been talked about for decades but by it's roots can be traced back to the 1950's when the swells in the water would be unsuitable for surfing and kids would take to the streets and imitate the movements they would make on their surfboards. So, what defines a Longboard and what is the differnce between a Longboard and a regular Skateboard? A longboard is between 28 inches and can go longer then 48 inches long, while the width and concave of the longboard can change depending on the manufacturer of the board. Longboards have a wider base therfore have a longer based truck (Axle) that holds the wheels, bearings and bolts to the board. Longboards are much more resiliant for cruising around and for high speeds. Skateboards tend to get what we like to call the speed wobbles at higher speeds because the wheel base is shorter but is still holding the same amount of weight as a longboard at high speeds. So, if cruising around and bombing hills is your thing the Longboard is your best option, if your looking to do tricks then a Skateboard is your board of choice.
