How fast can you go on a longboard?

Longboards are typically faster than skateboards due to their larger wheelbase (distance between trucks) and bigger wheels.

Just how fast can you go on a longboard? Longboarding speed typically ranges from 6 mph when cruising, to 50-65 mph when downhill riding.

How hard is it to learn to longboard?

You absolutely CAN learn to skate using a shortboard or standard skateboard – some people prefer that! But from an ease-of-use and safety standpoint, longboarding can’t be beaten. 

Longboarding is so much easier to learn because of all of the skills used to skateboard (pumping, turning, balance, strength, etc.)

Is a longboard best for beginners?

99% of beginners should start with a cruiser longboard. If you’re looking for a beginner cruiser board, I’d recommend it being at least 30” long and 8.5” wide.

A long, wide deck will be easier to balance on. The wheels should be large/soft (60mm-80mm / 77a-83a) so they can easily roll over cracks/bumps.
