SIMPLY THE BEST
Longboard decks often have wider wheels and trucks than skateboards, as this allows them to turn more quickly…Because longboard decks are generally, although not always, longer than a skateboard, the turning radius would be compromised by narrow trucks. That being said, even shorter longboard decks are equipped with wider trucks, as longboard decks are intended for traveling, as opposed to doing aerial tricks.
These kind of custom longboard decks include wheel cutouts which provide room for the wheels to turn at sharper angles while avoiding wheelbite. Hybrids also tend to be shorter than other longboard decks, which allows the rider to complete the same tricks as on a standard skateboard. A downside of hybrid longboard decks is the potential for “shoebite” which happens when the rider’s shoe rubs the wheel, slowing or abruptly stopping the rider.
While longboard decks can be shorter than skateboards, this is rarely the case. In general, longboard decks are mostly 42 inches to 46 inches in length, although some are much shorter and some are much longer. The length of longboard decks that a buyer should purchase depends on what type of skateboarding he or she will be doing. In general, shorter longboards are better suited for flatland riding, meaning riding on terrain that doesn’t have a great deal of rough surfaces or downhill inclines. Flatland longboard decks should generally be 40 inches or less, which allows the user to carve at very sharp angles. Shorter boards are very maneuverable, but aren’t as stable, making them ill-suited for bumps and steep hills.
The perfect longboard decks, when it comes to free-riding, are neither too large nor too small. If the board is too short it feels unstable & uncomfortable & if it is too large it could feel bulky and difficult to maneuver, so the best length is what feels right for you – the width is not all that important.

CUSTOM LONGBOARD WHEELS
Another aspect of longboards closely related to board length is the wheelbase. The wheelbase is the measurement between the front and back wheels, and can give a user a good indication of the size of the board. The wheelbase differs from the board length because it is not directly proportional. This is because the wheelbase is determined by the placement of the trucks. If the trucks are further apart, the board will be “loose” and won’t have a tight turning radius; conversely, if the trucks are close together, the board will be “tight” which will enable easy turning and maneuvering. Like board length though, the “tightness” of the board can either be an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on the riding style of the user.
BEST LONGBOARD WHEELS:
The main quality sign of a longboard deck is actually not the length, but rather IT’S THE LONGBOARD WHEELS. Generally, our custom longboard wheels are smoother and more advanced than the average longboard wheels. Their amazing shape allows them to travel more quickly and smoothly than average skateboard wheels, while also allowing them to roll over obstacles. This is what makes our wheels better suited for rough terrain & uneven surfaces, whereas skateboards and shortboards are better suited for the smooth surfaces found in skate parks.
BEST LONGBOARDS FOR BEGINNERS –
SKATEBOARDS FOR BEGINNERS
When you’re looking for the best longboards for beginners, think safety above all else. Buying good quality boards with well-engineered components is vital to safety. You may not be familiar with the types of boards or what their advantages are though this guide will help you.
Our Longboard decks are designed for cruising and high speeds, longboard decks are a longer and wider version of a skateboard, making them great for racing, transportation, or for anyone who just wants to enjoy a fun ride. Unlike regular skateboards which are generally shorter and thinner for tricks, the added length and width of the longboard deck delivers a stable and smooth ride making it more comfortable, & is often compared to surfing (called Surf-Skateboards) because of the riders ability for speed, large turns and carving.
BAMBOO LONGBOARD DECKS VS. MAPLE LONGBOARD DECKS VS. FIBERGLASS SKATEBOARD DECKS – WHAT ARE LONGBOARDS MADE OUT OF?
Featuring different constructions utilizing durable materials like bamboo, maple and fiberglass, longboard decks come in a variety of styles including pintails, drop through and drop down longboard decks. Depending on your specific riding style and preferences, each style, size and material of longboard decks will provide a different feel. Many pintail longboard decks use looser trucks and larger wheels making them ideal for the “surf”-styled carve, while cruiser boards are slightly smaller with large wheels making them great for both tricks and catching speed and carving down hills.
The key to having a truly amazing longboarding experience is not whether the rider really wants to practice this sport or even finding the right spot – it is choosing the best longboard decks. However, doing so is certainly a trying experience as there are literally thousands of options out there.
Longboard decks decks are typically made from plywood anywhere from two to eleven layers of usually 2 millimetres (0.079 in) in thickness, composed of birch, bamboo, maple, koa, or oak wood. Longboard decks are commercially available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Each variety has certain advantages and disadvantages, which come into play depending on the technique or personal preferences of the rider.
