Just ordered a longboard!!!

Probably not the absolute best financial move I've ever made but I've wanted to get one since I started watching the videos on whoisadamcolton.com around this time last year. Especially if i can get back to boston this year. It'll be an awesome form of transportation. I love skateboarding and riding longboards is a lot of fun. Anyone else ride?

Hell yes! I love my longboard. The thing has seen better days though. Needs new bearings, hardware, and griptape. How fun they are. I can amuse myself for hours with that thing, there's always something new to do with it.

Ahh longboards are cool So much fun to ride, and it really takes so much less effort than the shortboards (is that actually a term? You know, the ones made by Flip, Element, Enjoi etc.) Love riding them, but never actually got one...

I also like how longboard bearings go up to ABEC 11 or higher when the highest shortboard bearing i've seen is 7

Re: Just ordered a longboard!!!

Yeah... I'd love to get some nice Ceramic bearings for it eventually to turn it into a real speed demon. I got an Arbor Pintail for those wondering. Figured a longboard with a Koa veneer on top was appropriate seeing as the hawaiians used koa 1000 years ago to make the first surfboards!
