Long boarding is common place with competitive races down hill, riders reach speeds in excess of 50 miles per hour. Long board vary in size and shape and has more stability than a regular skate board. Long Boards have way better traction and durability due to larger wheel size and lower wheel durometers. Many long boarders, use “trucks” (axles) that have different geometric parameters than a skateboard. All of these factors changes the angles that long boards can turn and their ability to coast long distances make them perfect for downhill extreme skating!
