You should choose your longboard or cruiser skateboard based on the size of its deck. Follow our guide!

THE SIZE OF THE SKATEBOARD DECK

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

SHORT BOARDS (<80 CM) - CRUISERS

Cruiser skateboards are light, easy to handle and dynamic - perfect for urban journeys and short distances

LONGER BOARDS (>80CM) - LONGBOARDS

Longboards are stable, even at higher speeds, meaning they can do big arcing turns. Longboards are well suited to cruising around town or riding longer distances on country roads.
