You should base your choice of a longboard or cruiser on the type of experience you're looking for while riding. If you want to focus on speed and thrust, cruisers are ideal. Longboards, however, are perfect for long rides with nice wide turns. And finally, a Drop Race model will provide excellent stability to get started with speed.

Short Boards (<80Cm) - Cruisers
Cruiser skateboards are light, easy to handle and dynamic, making them perfect for urban journeys and short distances.


Longer Boards (>80Cm) - Longboards
Longboards are stable, even at higher speeds. This means they can do big arcing turns. Longboards are well suited for cruising around town or riding long distances on country roads.

"Longboarding is all about the thrill of the ride. I recommend always taking a multitool with you whenever you skate so that you can adjust your trucks depending on how things are feeling. You want them tighter for increased stability, and looser for getting more of an angle on turns and accentuating the feeling of carving."
