I like them. Wouldn't go blazing down a hill on em' but still fun.
>>
>>694705316
Would love to have one, but I don't want to spend the money.

I would probably not use it that often given how fucking hot it is in florida. Maybe if I was in cali, or really anywhere with decent hills to compensate.
>>
>>694705316
They are a mode of transportation only slightly more efficient then walking. This is balanced out by the fact that you then have to carry it anywhere you are not allowed to use it, like indoors on campus. Ergo, not worth using.

Agreed. Buy a real skateboard, you'll be glad you did. Put soft wheels or maybe buy a cruiser later if you ride long distances

Can't bomb a hill with that, and cruising requires more pushing effort.

Anybody over the age of 13 does not belong on a scooter. If you post on here.... you have outgrown scooters.

Longboards are great for a few mile rides. If you're going uphill you can just get off and carry it up with no problem, and they're fairly light. Then you can just go all the way back down without even pushing. Make sure you know how to tighten your trucks before doing anything downhill, or you'll get wobbles and eat shit. Skate boards are pretty meh for transport, more for just tricks. Side walk cracks can fuck up a skaters day bad.

Get a real skateboard faggot try hard

>>694714896
better than a faggot long boarder. At least I can pop tricks, you never could so you took up long boarding cuz it's easy as fuck
>>
>>694715229
>At least I can pop tricks
since when does popping tricks overshadow having fun? each to their own dipshit
>>
>>694714731
If you could actualy skate well then side walk cracks are no bother but you can't so you long board.
>>
>>694715229
Hm. Choosing to ride on something NOT designed to do tricks because it's easier to do tricks? I think you might be stupid. You're comparing a something designed to do petty tricks to something designed to hit 40-50 MPH.
>>
>>694715685
Once you start getting tricks then you understand plus I don't look like a faggot having to stop and pick up my board to get up a kurb, just pop right up onto it
>>
>>694715723
Matter of geometry and physics you dumb fuck. The steeper the impact angle the harder the force on your board. Longboards have bigger wheels by far which ride over cracks, rocks, and sand no problem.

Watch this and tell me you can't bomb a hill on a skateboard.

Or you get a Longboard and ride at the speed of traffic in the street. Side walks for kiddies.

You can pop up curbs with a longboard (has to have a kick).
Otherwise you just go boneless. Longboarding is fun mate. Skateboarding is fun as well, I used to do that. Sometimes nostalgia gets me and I search for my old shorty.

>>694715818
>implying all long boards are just for downhill

Check out sergio yuppie, and see what real downhill is and what it means to skate
>>
>>694715971
You must not know how to ollie or chinese ollie
>>
>>694715971
Plus softness of the wheels, the softer you get the easier to traverse most obstructions in your path. The downside is you will go slower than you would with harder wheels.

>sidewalk is for kiddies
Maybe you should check out the roots of skating, last time i checked it started in the streeets and on the sidewalks
>>
>>694716272
Not true. Softness of the wheels improves grip. Faster cars use softer grippier wheels for the exact reason
>>
>>694715229
I fly on my long board. You sweat trying to push to 3mph.
>>
I live to cruise around town with my 90cm longboard. just feels great, mellow floating in the streets. would love to skate too but not patient enough. what ever u like, both is awesome. also, check 'em
>>
>>694716336
w.e man don't be a hypocrite and tell me that a board is made to go fast or w.e. At the end of the day it's made to be skated and what you do with it is your choice and how u do it is up to you.

Some boards are better at going fast.
Not even kidding. You won't go fast downhill with a pumping setup, you won't do slalom with a fucking downhill monster.
And I'm pretty sure you don't want to go downhill on a regular skateboard, just like you don't want to skate vert with a fucking dancer or soulcruiser.
I can appreciate every board for what it is and don't understand the constant HURR DUR ____BOARD MUSTARDRACE thing.
I got my old skateboard friends to test (-> have some fun on) my longboard. Now they all got both, skate setups and at least one longboard.
Why limit yourself to one category?
>>
>>694717155
Atleast we can agree pennyboards are shit
>>
>>694716413
Yes true.
Hard wheels go faster than soft wheels on smooth surfaces. Other way for rough surfaces.
>>
>>694717155

Welp, yeah they're shit.
Just like most cheap pre-built stuff.

Yes, more so when it is some try hard who carries it about all day without setting foot on it at any point. That rustles my jimmies

>implying tires and wheels are the same and react to the road in the same way.

Please go read up on durometer and I want you to tell me that a 75a rolls faster than a 92a.
>>
>>694717789
nope I don't use one

I live in SoFlo and ride my Land Yachtz Switch 40 just about every day. Get it man. You'll learn to love the heat.
>>
>>694716843
Chinese Ollies are pointless go down a cracked ass sidewalk and Chinese ollie every single one and tell me it's easier than just rolling over them.
>>
>>694717826
Not about which rolls faster, bigger wheel is going to roll slower compaired to a smaller wheel if the board is traveling the same speed. Holy fuck I've never seen such lack of knowledge in a thread thats boarderline intro to engineering.
>>
>>694717826
Yes a 75a would roll faster than 92a as it has a larger surface area plus greater grip, you try a power slide on softies going slow.
>>
>>694717965
You're not taking into account how small wheels interact with road surface. On rougher surfaces larger wheels (70mm) will roll better than small (63mm) wheels.
>>
>>694705316
I think they're Tubular
>>
>>694718212
Yes. This contributes how?

You must suck then. It takes next to no effort plus you don't have to do every single crack, just do it when you need to and you will sail over cracks and lips

>>694717965
You ignorant bastard I'm talking about fucking hardness of the fucking wheel do you otherwise know what we're talking about this we've been talking about for the past 5 comments. I'll set up a scenario for you get 2 Longboards with the same exact setup all the same hardware except one board has harder wheels than the other one. If both boards go down an inclined street the one with the harder wheels will go faster with a sacrifice of grip. I'll go back to your car reference one car is driving with slightly deflated tires and one with fully inflated tires. The one with the inflated tires will go faster. Hard wheels = faster. Please tell me more about how "physics don't apply"
>>
>>694718482
tryhard hipster detected
>>
>>694718482
Drop thru cut outs are great
>>
>>694718563
Hardness has nothing to do with gravity acting upon an object. The force is the same, and the wheels roll the same.
>>
>>694718482
Just my opinion but dusters is kryptonics tier trash.
