    A lot of skateboarders call longboarding “longboring” because most people cruise and don’t do typical skateboard tricks. But, longboarding has come a long way and has intense downhill races with 80mph skating, that’s an adrenaline rush on a plank of wood and 4 wheels last time I checked, and yet a lot of skaters still hate on the long version of the beloved sport.

    In the beginning, Curt will tell you, skateboarding came from surfing, and the longboard aesthetic was a huge part of the decks and the styles, so even the roots of skateboarding have a longboard surfing feel.

    What do you think? Are they different sports, or are they the same?

    Yes. It’s fun but like a moped fun. And now every body has one. I like to cruise around to the liquor store u know, but mainly, transportation, a few hills.. and then a modern pool/street deck..

    fucking long boarders / look / i think skateboards are skateboards / and I will have a good time no matter but yes in cali surf /skate Sure..

    sorry for messing up your flow… Makaha yep.. surf / skate but as skating progressed it was in the streets and became an off shoot…
