An adverb is suppose to modify an adjective, verb, adverb, etc. But don't get me wrong. The site has some good info about longboards but the name leaves much to be desired. I guess I'm a hypocrite. What exactly does Lingamish mean? Yeah. I probably should rest my point and go on about the difference between longboards and skateboards, which was my original intent behind this article.
Skateboards were made to do tricks on the street, park, or skate-park -- whereas longboards were made for cruising on the street, to class, or for going fast, such as downhill.
There's a lot of discussion about how longboards were started. Some say it occurred when Tom Sims put skateboard wheels and trucks on a water ski. Others say it occurred when a group of surfers could not surf in the winter or when there was no waves, and the result: They put trucks and wheels on a surfboard.
Despite the linguistic differences, they are very similar. The deck on a longboard is about XX inches long. The deck on a skateboard is about XX inches long.
Both use trucks, wheels, bearings, and other hardware.
I've been thinking about buying one of these boards to ride to school. It's less than 1 mile and should get me to class pretty quick.
I also like that the longboard is more stable and I'll be able to carry my messenger bag without getting off balance. And longboards are faster.
The longer deck makes it more stable and less able to do tricks. The plank can have camber, be concave, have a kick, cutout, drop, or drop through.
The wheels are bigger too and that helps. I've found more good info on silverfishlongboarding, too.
