A cruising longboard will get you around town in style, and it is ridiculously fun. However, with hundreds of different options, how do you know which one to choose? No worries, here are the most important specs and features to you need to look for when comparing longboards for sale.
The size of the deck mostly comes down to personal preference. However, varying longboards require differing skill levels, so make sure you choose one that fits within your personal experience and your approach to longboarding.
The size of your ride's wheels will determine not only what you can do with the board, but how tricky it is to ride. Beginners should choose wheel sizes between 50-59mm, while experienced and trick riders can go with 60mm and more.
There are all sorts of materials that go into a longboard's construction. The most popular choices are woods (maple, bamboo, and others) and of course durable plastic. The type you choose comes down to your personal preference and style, all of them work well.
While some longboards ship assembled, others do not. Both types are fun to use, and assembly is very quick and easy. In general, we recommend buying an assembled longboard because it makes getting started and heading out on the road much faster.
