Bump...it's been awhile since I've longboarded, I've been skating recently

I was really into downhill and raced a lot and now I'm getting back into it and hopefully plan on hitting up a few races over the summer.

here are some really good vids:

Aug 20, 2011 @ 01:39
theres many brands, sector 9, loaded dervish, golden coast.. the list goes on n on. i started with a sector 9 idk the model just tht its 54cm of awesomeness. its a big board but you just have to grow a bond with it n youll be able to ride any board

Hell no.
For price/quality go for Jet boards.

With skateboards, you can obviously do tricks a lot of tricks. You can also cruise with a regular skate board; you can slap on some larger cruiser wheels too.
With longboards, you can cruise, freeride (sliding), downhill, dance, and carve. You can also do tricks with a longboard if it has kicktails. You can do tricks like pop-shuvits, ollie, and more.

Bump just got into this shit.
Aug 12, 2012 @ 18:44
Bump...Anybody got any tips on getting my form right. Most people usually have their front foot directly aligned with the board when they push off the ground. i usually have diagonal across the deck otherwise id have trouble getting my balance right once i transition by back foot onto the board after pushing off...Also can any1 help me with the balance on pushing off the ground.
Sep 06, 2012 @ 15:39
just wondering what kind of cruiser this is, it looks like a penny board but it has grip tape with a wooden deck, it's quite small. I'm interested in one of these but don't know what it is and what to look for.

Magmar check out the Landyachtz Dinghy, might be what you're lookin for.

looking to buy my first longboard.. 5'6 130lbs sz 9 foot; looking to use as a commuter on mostly flat ground (but when I'm back @ school it'll be a bit more hilly)

this seemed like a good option:

but I'm not sure what types of wheels/trucks/bearings etc. I should get

any suggestions?
