What you have to ask first is are Longboards easy to ride? Yes! If you are looking to just ride it around to get from A to B. But there are a lot of different types of Longboards out there, Longboards come in all different shapes and sizes. The most common are pintails, drop-throughs, drop-downs and dancing Longboards. Beyond this there are many other more specialised varieties, like downhill and free ride Longboards, pumping/long-distance boards, oversized Skateboards and more. These are more optimised for certain types of Longboarding.
We recommend beginners to start with a Cruiser Skateboard. If you’re looking for a beginner Longboard Cruiser, we recommend a long, wide board and deck, this is considered a drop through. The drop through will lower your centre of gravity. The wheels should be large/soft, 60mm-80mm / 77a-83a, so they can easily roll over cracks/bumps. The trucks should be reverse kingpins, so they’ll be stable at higher speeds.
Skateboarding and Longboarding are quite different sports, even though both are a piece of wood with wheels on. To answer this question properly you need to ask yourself what you want to do? Because you wouldn’t take a longboard to a half pipe and you wouldn’t want to bomb a hill on a Skateboard.
But if you're a complete beginner just learning to cruise, Skateboarding is harder because it has a smaller surface area so its harder to keep your balance. Longboards have a larger surface which helps you to stay on your board at higher speeds. You’re also less likely to experience speed wobbles because of the larger wheels, wider trucks, and wider deck.
If you want to learn tricks we would recommend that Skateboards as they are easier because they are lighter and have an upturned nose and tail. Learning how to ollie or kickflip is going to be best on a popsicle style Skateboard.
If you're looking to buy your first Longboard you can buy Longboards as cheap as £40 but you may regret your choice. Also, buying a Cheap Longboard might simply discourage you from Longboarding as your riding experience will not be very good. Cheaper Longboards also don't last as long as mid to high priced Longboards. A good quality Longboard usually costs around £90 to £150 for a complete. We recommend buying completes as beginners as you don't have to think about all the other parts and components. If you want to switch to other wheels or trucks or upgrade them, you can always do so. By that time, you know way more about your board and needs.
When it comes to your first Longboard, you won’t normally need to pay more than £200 unless you’re already interested in Longboarding and have done it for a few years and looking for a more suitable board for a specialised area.
