Basically if you dont ride downhill then you should just stop riding.Downhill is the reason people longboard, not using your board for that is like buying a pillow and not sleeping in it. History Before starting its good to know a little about the topic you're learning about How it started: Longboarding/Skateboarding originated in Oahu, Hawaii. Surfers used longboarding/skateboarding as a cross-trainer, When the waves were dull they would go for a cruise. How? They would immitate the moves of surfing a wave by skimming their hands across the ground, carving quickly, changing their positioning on the board and trying to keep everything flowing. Did you know? . Longboarding or Skateboarding wasn’t what it
was originally called. It was actually called Sidewalk Surfing. It wasn’t until 1959 when longboarding/skateboarding hit the market
place. Skateboards were sold all over the place,
toy stores, convenient stores, etc. First Pro longboard Makaha, was the first professional board distributor. Gordan and Smith made the first fiberglass boards, more popularly they were also known as G&S. But, of course, these things were very dangerous at this time in our history. Longboarding lives!!! What made it popular The first longboards They were made out of, a plank of wood, trucks that came from rollerskates and the metal wheels that were on them. It took people a while to find out clay wheels were more safe. & it took even more time to figure out wheels that were made out of urethane were not only safer, but smoother and also had more grip. Cadillac, a branch off of the longboarding/skateboarding company named Bahne, were the first company to discover the urethane formula that was sufficient for skateboarding wheels. This sport came to an abrupt death for a few years after people that the sport was to wreckless. However in 1973, often known as the second wave of the sport, that longboarding/skateboarding became a popular sport again. The urethane wheels brought the sport back to life. Finally companies designed trucks that were made just for this sport, some of the most popular ones were (and still are!!) Independent, Tracker, Gullwing and Bennett. End I hope you guys liked this and if i was able to get at least one person into longboard ride safe and if you fall keep riding because that's how you learn Sources Sources used for this presentatoin: http://www.muirskate.com/longboard/wheels/all/ http://www.muirskate.com/longboard/decks/all/ http://longboardskateboard.org/history-of-longboarding.php
