The best way to Choose the Right Longboard - Understand Your Riding Style and Contour
Choosing the right longboard can be confusing. There are all those different designs, sizes and shapes available and as a beginner it can seem overwhelming. Even when you are an experienced or intermediate rider there are many things to choose from.
To make things simple, start with understanding your preferred riding style and the most common shapes. That way you can select which board you will need. The better you understand the shapes and the fashions, the more straightforward it is to select the best longboard.
What is your longboard riding fashion?
Used for a fun sort general-all purpose way of transportation. It has gentle rides and will allow you to get from A to B.
Freestyle [All amounts]
That is among the earliest styles, original used in skateboarding. Freestyle riding involves many technical tricks on a surface that is flat. It’s all about originality: dancing, goofy riding, sliding, board- tricks, and routine riding. This fashion is fine for beginners in addition to advanced longboarders.
Free ride [Intermediate]
This really is for performing maneuvers down - for example quick sliding in fast succession with one another in technical tricks and various speeds.
Speed, speed, speed! This style is used to ride down the hill as quickly as you could. Bombing the hills while keeping control and going rapidly. You’re using a crouch position to get more speed. If you are a beginner it’s best to take it slow with this fashion until you gained some more experience.
Which longboard shape should you get?
Based on the fashion you choose previously, you can now have a look at the shapes. There are 2 general longboard shapes that designs fall into. Both shapes are for intermediate, beginners and advanced riders.
Cruiser - these are the ones that are most popular and the board is level.
Drop - the trucks are mounted through the board, which lowers the deck - for long-distance riding, free ride and downhill.
Both directional and symmetrical boards come in these 3 deck styles. There’s some overlap between the contours and the riding fashions, as you see. In the long run it is your personal choice which one you like best. Many shapes are correct.
Directional: these boards are intended to go into one direction: forward. The one that is most popular is the pintail.
Symmetrical: these boards appear the same no matter how it being faced by you. The back appears the same. These boards are generally used in freeriding and freestyle.
Boards come in different deck styles for every riding style. Here are the top 3 deck styles that are common:
So you understand which one suits you best, if a couple of longboards try before buying.
