Longboard Cruiser Guide

Cruising with one Longboardbecomes more and more popular among adolescents and young adults. Longboards for cruising are very reminiscent of an extended one skateboard, Longboards are actually an evolution of skateboards. Like these, a longboard consists of a deck, the axles and the wheels. On a cruising board, however, the deck is much longer, which means that the axles have a greater distance from each other. In contrast to the skateboard, where the forward movement is achieved by repeated repulsion with the feet, a longboard is kept in motion by the swinging body movements of the driver. If you are considering buying a longboard for the first time, you should consider a few key points in your decision. For beginners, it is generally advisable to buy a complete board, which can be adapted to your own abilities as you increase your practice by replacing individual components.

The deck

Most longboard decks are made of Canadian maple or bamboo and reinforced with other materials if necessary. The decks have a wide variety of shapes, lengths and widths. Basically, here is that the length of the deck should fit the body length. And the width of the deck needs to match the size of your own feet for a good stand. There are also different flexible decks. From very stiff to maximum flexibility almost everything is possible. The cruising boards usually have a semi-rigid or flexible deck. When choosing the flexibility of the deck also the weight of the driver plays a role. The heavier the driver, the less flexible the deck should be, especially for beginners. A good complete board and also suitable for beginners Cruiserboardis for example the Mike Jucker Hawaii Longboard MAKAHA with bamboo deck or the Globe Longboard Prowler Cruiser,

The axes

The width of the deck significantly determines the width of the axles. The axes should be chosen so wide that the position of the ball-bearingis in the role in something on the outside of the deck. If in doubt, choose the axles rather wider than narrow. The axles with the steering rubbers also contain the crucial element for the steering behavior of the longboard. In each axle two steering rubbers, also referred to as bushings, installed. Steering rubbers are available in different degrees of hardness and shapes. Longboard cruisers usually use tapered steering rubbers, so-called cone bushings. Also with the steering rubbers, the weight of the driver plays a role again. Heavy riders should use harder rubbers, especially for the beginning, than lighter drivers. The steering rubbers can be easily replaced if necessary. A solid cruiser board for beginners is the FunTomia Longboard.

The roles

The wheels, referred to in the jargon as Wheels, are made in different diameters, widths and different hardness of polyurethane. Softer wheels mean more grip, run slower and absorb shock better than harder types. On the other hand, the soft rolls wear out faster. Again, the heavier the driver, the harder the reels should be. Rollers with a small diameter are easier to brake, but run more restless than those with a large diameter. If you are not satisfied with the rolling behavior of your longboard, you can replace the wheels with other models in a few easy steps.

The choice of longboards for cruising is varied. Both beginners and experts will find suitable longboards in good quality with the possibility to upgrade or upgrade the board if necessary. And who likes it quite comfortably, should think about the purchase of one of the ever-increasing number of Cruiser Longboards with electric drive.
