Longboarding

Screaming down your back alley on a longboard can satisfy your need for speed… but it can also be kind of dangerous. Longboarding is an extremely fast sport and if you’re getting into the action, you’ve got to learn how to take care.


Need for Speed

Longboard RacingLongboard Racing

Longboards are built for speed and racing. More and more racing competitions are popping up all over the world so be sure to expect longboarding to join the events at the X Games in the near future.

 

Serious Safety

Since longboards are designed for speed and most athletes are racing on the streets, it’s really important to think about safety. The school of riding in Vancouver BC is a great example of how pro longboarders, such as Dan Pape, teach kids how to progess in the sport with control and cautioning the dangers of the road.

 



Interest for Innovation

Longboarding TricksLongboarding Tricks

Longboarding is still a fresh sport so that means there is a lot of room for innovation. There are a few tricks (slides, carves, manuals) that boarders are trying, but we’re all still waiting for a Tony Hawk to pop into the scene with a bag full of new tricks… you could be that boarder!

 



Paranoid Parents

Longboarding is a great sport to try when you are really young. Kids are jumping into the scene as early as 7 and 8 years old… young enough to scare any over-protective parent into a full on state of paranoia. But with the proper training and equipment, it’s just like any other extreme sport.
