PROS OF LONGBOARDING

Gets you in shape

Builds lower body strength

Much faster than walking (and busing in many cases)

New skill/Hobby

Great way to kill time




INJURIES AND BAILING

The best way to prevent injuries when boarding is wearing protective gear.
Wearing sliding gloves and knee pads give you a good surface to land on and slide to a stop on.

Longboard Competitions


Downhill - races with very fast speeds (80-100km usually)
Freestyle events (doing tricks)
Slalom events – Similar to “slalom” ski and snowboard events.

Originated from skateboarding, which originated from surfing.

First boards started being built in 1960s, in basements not in factories.

Started growing in popularity in the 70s, with skateboarding.

Longboarding

The deck is complete!
Trucks and wheels still must be added with bolts and locking nuts

Remove screws once dried

Using a strong adhesive, attach the layers of wood

Apply varnish, and paint if desired, add grip tape.

Use weights or clamps with a “pattern curve” to bend thin layers of wood. Keep steady, consistent weight till curve sets.

Cut your board out, then sand till smooth.

Put screws (or clamp strongly) around the edge of board outline while waiting for it to dry

How To Build A Deck

Some early boards, after boards were beginning to gain popularity.

An old skateboard prior from before the use of urethane wheels.

Originated from skateboarding, which originated from surfing.

First boards started being built in 1960s, in basements not in factories.

Started growing in popularity in the 70s, with skateboarding.

“Lords of Dogtown” is the story of several of the original skateboarders; without skateboarding, longboarding would not have been invented.


Where it all began

Victoria Longboard Club is dedicated to promoting boarding throughout the region, while introducing and connecting existing riders, and introducing them to new hills and locations.
Helmet

Sliding Gloves
Knee Pads
Elbow Pads
Here, you can see a chart that shows the number of long boarding injuries as related to gender and year. Surprisingly, more females visit the hospital for longboarding, but it seems more males ride boards. On the right, a diagram can be seen representing the likelihood of injuring a specific type of your body while boarding. At the top of the list, is the shoulder at 33%, tied by ankle at 33%, then wrist with 31%, then arm and head are tied for last at 27%.
The normal stance type is regular, and for pushing, you usually want your left foot at the top of the board, just below the nose, with your right foot pushing. Some people though,ride backwards to that, in a position called goofy. Goofy means you have your right foot by the nose, and push with your left. Usually, you push with the foot you would kick with, but it is better to pick what is the most comfortable for your riding style.
