Longboards are the big brother of cruisers physically bigger (hence their name) and more comfortable to ride for longer distances. Longboards take a little less effort to gain speed than cruisers simply because their wheels are usually bigger. The larger size of longboards increases their stability and ride comfort. Like cruisers a key feature of longboards are their fatter softer wheels. Whereas most skateboard wheels are made out of polyurethane rated to around 90-100 durometre longboard and cruiser wheels usually rate around 70-80. The softer wheel is able to take on rougher more uneven surfaces with ease making longboards the perfect tool for getting around traversing pavements and other road surfaces. Longboards can provide hours of fun whether you're commuting to work or enjoying a lazy skate-trekking Sunday.
