Welcome to the Longboarding General thread!

We'll have a Raw start, Suggestions will be appreciated.

>What the fuck is a Longboard?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longboard_(skateboard)

Longboards are focused on speed (downhill style) and agility while standing on the board (Dancing). Some Skateboard tricks can be done on a longboard too, however it may require a tougher board, or "Flex"

Wear your fucking helmet.

>Wear your fucking helmet.

AYE!

Don't be a fucking retard. Skate with a helmet, and save yourself from becoming retarded.

Also, OP, longboards are also used for long-distance skating. Stiffer boards with bigger, softer wheels.
>>
Just got a landyachtz switch 40 as my first ever board ever. Wat do?
I want to be like OP's picture. Wat do?
>>
I was skated streets when I was you. Never did hill bombs on longboard. For street helmet is not really needed. With hill bombing a helmet is not optional. Going that fast is a good way to get killed.
>>
Also it is best to bomb late at night when there is little to no traffic. In either case you need a spotter to make sure hills or clear or you will die. Start small and build confidence slowly. No need to go to Cali and jump off a fucking mountain first attempt.

So hey guys.

I want to start longboarding, but the only boards I can afford do not support my weight (75kg, while they are recommended to people up to 70kg.) They are pic related, Left one being the most expensive.

Should i try to get one? I fear they would break.

This isn't wrestling, go to /toy/.

Really interested in giving this a go. Also for transport reasons for doing things around town and visiting friends. I live in the southern nub of Australia, anyone got any experience buying a board from around here?

Thanks i'll remember to improve the thread, with more information on longboards and safety. Or, if something does it on #2 instead of me, please remember to edit.

>>852982
Also careful while doing it at night, you'll mostly end dead, have a nice spotter.

Where i live there's fucking cool streets (pic related), i like to go there like 3am. However the few cars that are on the street are drunk idiots and will surely kill you if you don't pay attention.

Wow that street looks like it has lots of potential. Is the surface of the street reasonable? Mostly free from large pebbles etc? If you're hitting the higher speeds 35 mph or greater it should be closely looked at.
>>
>>853996
My advice is do NOT try big hills and upper speed limits with a cheaper inferior long board. Invest in some decent gloves and a reasonable comfortable helmet for upper speed limits as well. General advice, the faster you want to go the better your gear and planning should be.
>>
>>854546
A huge must for longboards is being able to stop. Foot breaking can only do so much. No matter how fast your going know how to stop. There's always a chance of some dick car to appear or shit road.
>>
>>854546
>>854728
Thank you so much!
>>
Carving is the first basic speed control you should learn. Just watch out for them Speedwobs. Keeping most your weight on your front foot should help when bombin hills.

Slack lining is an amazing way to improve balance and body awareness which helps skating and especially helps out stand up slides
>>
>>857724

>>
>>858584

After years of skate i'm going to buy a longboard. Is longboarding harder than skateboarding? I want something that will take me to places. I don't like bicycles.

Also, Pic is the cheapest longboard i found in local store (something like $73). Any problem on getting a longboard this price? What should i know?
>>
>>860047
