BEFORE BUYING

If the skateboard doesn’t go too fast, yes, certain e-skateboard are wonderful electric transportation vehicles (EVT) for beginning riders. However, electric skateboards are a serious investment .  There are a lot of free riding tutorials on YouTube and our website:https://eskateboardpark.com/pages/review-videos for beginners and intermediate riders alike, from standing on the board to push-riding, to ensuring maximum safety and more.

It is difficult if you’ve never been on a skateboard before. It’s even more difficult maintaining balance while the board is in motion. However, as is the most case in life, the more you practice a certain activity or skill, the more efficient you’ll become at performing this skill/activity. Hardly anyone ever gets on a bike and knows how to successfully get from one end of the driveway to the other without falling. Balancing (and riding) an e-skateboard, or any skateboard for that matter, requires practice. Practice, practice, practice.

This is not an easy question to answer, as almost every other board is constructed from materials for specific reasons. Here is a list of the common materials eSk8 decks are made out of:
• Aluminum
• Bamboo
• Fiberglass
• Canadian Maplewood
Sometimes, manufacturers combine these materials together to make an even sturdier deck. Boards made from aluminum are “faster” boards, due to aluminum’s light (but strong) weight. 

Yes! While all eSkateboards can be ridden by kids (5-10 years old), they shouldn’t be. A lot of boards are powerful, huge, and could seriously injure them. That’s why some brands made kid-friendly electric skateboards These skateboards have lower max speeds.

Are you new to longboarding? There are so many options that it can give you a giant headache if you’re not careful. Check out our Longboard Guide on our blog to make sure your head doesn’t explode!

General Skate Questions

The generic answer to this question is that “longboards” are generally in the 34” to 60” range. Longer longboards are used for long distance, carving/crusing, freeriding and downhill. Mini longboards generally range from 20” to 33”. Mini longboards are used for quick commutes, around campus, and trips to the grocery store. Most mini longboards feature a kick tail for easy maneuverability. Longboarding manufacturers are now manufacturing quality bushings and wheels that give a mini longboards a smooth and more stable ride, much like a (longer) longboard.

It really depends on what you want to do with the skateboard and how well you ride it. You can ride a Mini-Longboard in all types of conditions. Most students that need to commute on a campus tend to like a skateboard that is easy manuever and carry with them when there is more than normal congestion. A Longboard will serve equally as well, however, Longboards are normally heavier and longer which makes walking with them difficult. If you are planning to bomb hills with your friends, you should consider something in the range of 38”-46”.

Try skating towards cracks in the pavement at angle. If you are moving at 5-10mph and at a good angle, you should not have a problem going right over the cracks.

Truck Bushings are to blame for this. Truck bushings are either rubber or plastic which are designed to absorb your turns. Therefore, it does take a little time for the bushing to bend back to their original position.

We recommend that you not ride your skateboard through puddles, rain, or in the sand. About every six months you should have your bushings replaced. Old bushings do flatten and become stiff after time.

If you are attempting to go down large hills you should be aware that you may get "speed wobbles" on your board. At higher speeds your trucks are more responsive so every slight movement you take will do much more because of this, over corrections will lead to speed wobbles, where your board oscillates back and forth out of control and eventually pitching you from the board if you can't control it. To prevent this from happening a simple fix is to simply tighten down your back truck

The squeaking is coming from a part of your trucks called the “pivot cup”. It’s caused by friction between the pivot bushing and the hanger. To fix it simply take the hanger off of the baseplate and take soap shavings, graphite or wax and spread it around inside of the pivot cup, use the hanger pivot to evenly spread it around. Then reassemble the truck and you’re good to go.

Softer wheels (75a-80a) will offer a much smoother ride and will have more grip than harder wheels. Harderwheels (95a+) will be faster in park situations but slower in normal applications. In normal applications they will not grip as much and have a much rougher ride. Wheels in the 81a-86a range will be a balance between grip and slide ability. Wheels in this range will grip better than harder wheels but are more prone to sliding out.

Some bearings do make noise after time. That does not necessarily mean that you should buy new bearings. Check the speed of your wheels by giving them a quick revolution. You will know if you need a new set of bearing if the wheel/s stop suddenly. The good news is that bearings are relatively inexpensive.

No, but they will keep you rolling for longer. Wheels play a much larger role in speed. A larger wheel (80mm+) will have a slow acceleration, but a high top speed. Smaller wheels (51mm-66mm) will have a fast acceleration but a low top speed. Wheels in the 70mm-75mm range will have a good balance between acceleration and top speed. Also the "hardness" of the urethane plays a role too. A harder wheel will be faster in a skate park setting but slower in normal setting because it is slowed down more by cracks and rough pavement whereas a softer wheel will more easily roll over those imperfections and lose less speed.

If you are attempting to go down steep hills, you should be aware that you may get "speed wobbles" on your longboard. At higher speeds your trucks are more responsive. Every slight movement you make while riding will cause your longboard to react differently. Over corrections will lead to speed wobbles. There are three reasons why this may occur: The first is that the rider is inexperienced. Second, the bushings on your longboard are too soft. Third, your back truck is not tight enough. Anyone of these reasons or a combination of these can case extreme damage to the rider. Be sure to learn everything you can about your longboard and the best way to adjust it. Also, spend time working your way through the grades and difficulty in a hill before attempting high speeds.

HOW TO CHOOSE

The wheel you buy depends on the intended application and the board it’s going. For cruiser/commuter boards in the 35”-46” range a larger wheel in the 70-76mm range with a durometer under 80a will work best. On a mini-board (under 30”) wheels in the 60-65mm with durometers under 80a work the best. For street skating a smaller wheel in the 51-55mm range with a durometer of 99a or 101a will work best. Park/Pool skating benefits from a medium sized wheel 60-65mm in diameter and a durometer in the 90a range works best. For sliding a wheel 60-65mm with a hard durometer 97a and above will work best.

The truck you buy depends on the intended application and the board being used. Cruiser/commuter type boards work well with the reverse-kingpin style truck because of its increased maneuverability and better turning capabilities. Street, park, pool and slide skating work better with traditional skateboard trucks because of the lower height, and the tendency to kick turn instead of lean turning. Also there is less of a chance of kingpin bite with a traditional skateboard truck.

The deck you purchase depends on the type of riding you will be doing. For cruising any board with large, soft wheels will do but for the most enjoyable cruising experience a board anywhere from 38”-60” will work best. For commuting boards under 38” work best. For park/pool/sliding/street a board with double-kick tails works best. Street skating tends to favor a narrower deck in the 7” width range whereas park/pool and sliding tends to favor a wider deck in the 8”+ range.

The type of bearings you buy isn’t as important as the wheels, trucks and deck. Any bearing within the $10-$20 price range will do. Bones Reds for example are a great bearing for the price.

There are companies that offer custom nose guards for specific and expensive longboards. he strips act as bumpers more than “guards”, but they get the job done for protecting your deck from impact at low to moderate speeds. They do wear down in time, so you will need to replace them every so often.

Slide gloves are definitely important for downhill longboarding. If you intend to do slides or ride downhill, we definitely recommend protecting your hands. Slides gloves will help you perform technical slides, drifts, and shut-down slides in the need of an emergency stop.

If you plan on reaching high speeds downhill or practicing new slides we recommend that you wear quality protective gear. Good pads like those from The 187 offer quality fastening straps that will secure the pads to your knees and elbows. Having tight fitting pads will prevent slipping when contact to the pavement is made.

Falling is nearly always a surprise in the longboarding world. For that reason, a helmet is important. We recommend that you get a certified race helmet if you intend to race downhill. (And many races and leagues require them!) These helmets offer better protection against injury during heavy impact. Let’s put it simply: Wear a helmet!

If your desired longboarding discipline is downhill racing and technical high speed runs, we would recommend shopping for used motorcycle leathers .Making contact with the pavement at any speed can cause serious injury to your body: The faster you go, the more severe the injury will be when it happens. Leathers help prevent road rash and other unfortunate impact related events. (If you can, find some leathers with knee and elbow pads to protect your body a bit more.)
