Longboarding... who does it?

I'm thinking about picking up one... looks sweet.

I think Chunk skates... someone give me the low down on this and suggestions for boards and stuff.

Thanks!

Since I'm in the burbs and there are no hills really... I'd like something in between having the ability to slide and have a comfy cruise.

It's what you do in front of Tony Hawk's pizza truck. Obviously.

Well, if it is push, I am very pleased with my "Bustin Boards" outta NYC - I have a LE Strike and with about 4 kicks, I can cruise for days and if you get the carving in you an just keep on going - They have all sorts of sizes and ways to construct and it really comes down to what kinda $$ you wanna drop - Hell, you can get $180 bearings for these things that are fast as fuck

Tell ya what pumpkin, next time you are in the City, let me know and you can take mine to see if you like it - It is different foot position and all as you have a lot more to work with

I also have a Ladera that is built to go downhill fast for long sweepers - Not good for the City (hence my Bustin) as it takes some force to get it to turn in

Let me know - My boards sit in my kitchen and seldom get used anymore - I now see tooooooooo many hipster doofuses riding them and I have an image to protect
