[QUOTE=teslacoil;31430392]I ride a Landyachtz Evo with Siesmic trucks. I get a lot of people driving in the opposite direction trying to figure out what the hell I'm on. This thing is amazing for carving hills and getting good speed on small hills, but carrying this behemoth up hills is no bueno.

I'm going to have to bring mine to school this year because of my reduced schedule.[/QUOTE] I'm talking about all those kids who ball and run track wearing tanks and buying short boards. And how everyone claims to longboard when I know for a fact they bought one and just rode it to the beach a couple times. Does not make you a longboarder. I always see your ass longboarding though txt me we're boutta throw down some hammers on edgewood hill text me i got a new phone and lostttttt my fuckin numbers [b]FAKE MERGE EDIT[/b] oh god i remember that board is heavy as FUCK
I have a couple of Longboards, one's a Sector 9 the other is a Vault. My Vault came with bad bearings, I complained, got a fresh pair of very good bearings a couple weeks later. So I'm pretty happy with the Vault for that. My Sector 9 is a 50" Pintail (actually can't remember the exact size, I think it's that) so I ride it down mega steep hills, I go crazy fast and the adrenaline rush is awesome. I don't use them to do tricks or any of that jazz, not really into them. [editline]31st July 2011[/editline] These days I'm seeing a lot of hipsters longboarding actually, and there are guys down the street from my house who I think recently got one, I see them trying to do tricks on them, I just whoosh past on my board. They can't go down the hills I go down on my board or else they'll fall.

I want this board so fucking much, but its $246, and I'm lazy. [IMG]http://www.lspstore.com/catalog/images/longboard/timemachine2011.jpg[/IMG]
I just ordered a LBL Humu. It's so sick.
i wanna get into this, looks pretty damn cool. though i've never been on a board before..should i start on a regular skateboard or would straight to a longboard work?
skate board always
ah alright, thanks. how long do you think it would take until i could use a longboard?
[QUOTE=dr.bean;31445137]ah alright, thanks. how long do you think it would take until i could use a longboard?[/QUOTE] Start straight on a longboard. Its easier to ride. Its smoother too and you aren't pressured into tricks immediately. Longboards can cruise. skateboards just sort of roll. you can learn in a day if you try. Some people can naturally balance on a board well, others cant. it depends.

I saw a nice longboard here in Spain for 90 euros. Pretty Gurd if you ask me.
Imo, I dislike longboards. They look extremely gay..
[QUOTE=Krzystylez;31446347]Imo, I dislike longboards. They look extremely gay..[/QUOTE] I dare say this is the stupidest thing I've ever seen on Facepunch.
[QUOTE=nos217;17907365]This shit looks awesome. I skate a lot, but I've never tried one of these. I might buy one. Reminds me of when I used to try and go fast on my normal skateboard, but my trucks were too loose and, well, it goes on from there. It was scary as hell by the way, I was going extremely fast (at least 30 mph), and I just started getting major speed wobbles until my board just powerslided and ripped out from underneath me. I fell flat on the ground and slid for ages. Hurt like hell but the adrenaline was so good.[/QUOTE] I don't even remember this.

[QUOTE=mastfire;31421361]here in phoenix only people that have long boards are hipster and preppy dumb asses, while most of the boarders are usually skate boarders[/QUOTE] it's too fucking hot to longboard so now i'm a poolboarding faggot the bowl at hudson is the best fosho
[QUOTE=Jallen;31389817]I did that a few times, but by far the worst way is when the board lands on its side, you land on it, then it suddenly flips over onto its bottom / top and you fly down at the ground at 100mph My ass bone hurt for more than a week.[/QUOTE] It's been a week, ass bone still hurts, I guess my injury wasn't as meager as you originally thought!
I personally prefer skateboarding, longboards aren't worth the harsh pricetag for the little things you can do. And the sense of freedom I think can be found elsewhere for a lot cheaper. Still fun to ride on my friends though (He has the exact same one as bottom picture)
Can you guys recommend me a board that would be good for cruising and occasionally bombing a few hills? I was going to just get a pintail then realised they aren't really built for high speeds.
I've always wanted to longboard but I'm poor and tend to fall a lot.
