Longboarders Are Not Skateboarders

I'm sorry, but longboarders are not skateboarders. To me longboarding is to skateboarding as football is to flying a kite. Well, maybe not that extreme but skateboarding and longboarding are two totally different things. I don't understand how some people can think they are so similar. What I really don't understand is why longboarding is so popular... Everything that you can do on a longboard, you can do on a skateboard. All that you CAN do on a longboard is ride and carve. You can do that on a skateboard and SO much more. If it's speed you want, get better bearings and larger diameter wheels. Riding and carving isn't difficult on a skateboard, it's just different. Skateboarders can bomb hills and piss off motorists just as well, if not better than longboarders. Throw in a big-spin to that equation and you got style. Plus, a mildly amused motorist. I get the whole carving and getting speed bit. I do that with my snowboard... But longboarding, really? Why not just ride a skateboard?

Maybe I'm just bitter about having to slow down for longboarders hoarding the streets. I wouldn't mind slowing down for a boarder doing a big-spin. But, that's only going to happen if that boarder has a skateboard under his feet.

Only thing I have to say. You have far more creative freedom on a skate than a longboard.

I don't see why people even rant about posers because your wasting your time. And don't necesarily like penny boards but I'm not going to rant about them 24/7. Honestly the people ranting about posers annoy me more than the posers them selves. Here's the thing all of the poser longboards are going to stop skating completely when the whole trend goes away. Then people will really see the people dedicated to riding longboards and not just cruising around pushing mongo and not even bombing hills or sliding. Don't judge every person who rides a long board.
