Longboarding with Original Skateboards2010-10-28
A longboard is a type of skateboard that is similar to a surfboard with wheels. They are commonly used for cruising, downhill racing, slalom racing, or transportation, rather than stunts. Fluent motions or tricks can be strung together, referred to as "dancing". Longboards can be shaped in various ways, depending on the type of riding for which the board is intended. Their greater weight and bulk makes them less suitable for many skateboarding tricks, but contributes to a fluid motion by providing more momentum. Longboarding is often compared to surfing on concrete, and the design allows big turns or quick short carves similar to a surfboard or snowboard.
