What’s the difference between a skateboard and longboard?
Board size and shape is a matter of personal preference, but there are some fundamental differences between the more traditional trick skateboards and the more recent style of longboards. Traditional street skateboards are seemingly uniform in size and shape while longboards can vary by inches and even feet in some dimensions. Wheels are available in wider varieties of softness and diameter and specialty trucks can really change the way a longboard skates. Generally speaking a kid’s first skateboard is likely to be a traditional “skateboard”, but the “longboard” genre of skateboarding is attracting more interest than ever. Here’s an example of a traditional street skateboard.
