Longboards from Amazon.com
Originating in the mid-1950s, longboarding was a popular land sport and hobby of surfers when the waves weren’t ideal. The first longboards were usually homemade, longer variants of skateboards that could mimic the turns and styling of surfing on the water.
Whether you use longboards for cruising around the city, downhill racing, or basic transport, Amazon.com’s selection of longboards ranges in style, length, wheel type, size, shape, and more. Easily customizable and personalized to the rider’s taste, most longboards measure between 33 and 59 inches, and shouldn’t exceed the rider’s height. One of the most important parts of the longboard is the deck, which is generally made from plywood and can offer between two and 11 layers thick of birch, bamboo, or maple. There are many different shapes of longboard deck available, corresponding to the type of riding you plan to do. For example, downhill decks are stiff and have a 28- to 30-inch wheelbase and offer more traction and maneuverability, while drop decks have a lowered foot platform for greater stability, but less traction and maneuverability. Pintail shapes are preferred for those who don’t want the wheels touching the board, and cruise decks, the most common shape, share a key similarity with standard skateboards--a kick-tail on the back.
