What is a Longboard?
Longboards, while very similar in appearance to cruisers, do have some fundamental differences. As the purpose of longboards is more for high-speed, long distance riding or commuting, they are made to be comfortable and efficient over long distances and offer more stability which is good for beginners. They tend to be longer (36" and above), have a flat deck, and some even feature cutouts to be able to lower the deck without rubbing on the wheels. They also tend to employ the use of reverse kingpin trucks, which are not as maneuverable as traditional trucks, but less twitchy/more stable.
Should I ride one?
If you intend to mostly go on long park connectors such as East Coast Park, a longboard is pretty ideal, as it allows you to cover a great distance with less effort. You will also not be doing much maneuvering or steering so the slowness of steering will not be a big disadvantage. If you intend to do short to medium distance commuting instead, such as going to school or around the campus, a cruiser might be the better choice.
