to be more specific, longboard. Its better suited for commuting, travel, general badassery

and IMO, being able to coast down and entire block by moving your hips is cooler than skateboard tricks

May I ask why you suddenly decided you want to do one of those ?

Oh and BTW, definately skateboarding, cause no-one likes fruitbooters

Edit: Longboarding rules even harder

Waveboard. Insanely fun. Grabs everyone's attention when they see it.

I thought exactly the same thing as you a few months ago and took up skating. Love it, you wouldn't regret it

waveboarding is the same as pumping on a longboard, right?

Rollerblading is for homosexuals. Not that homosexuality is a bad thing, because it is not, but just letting you know...

In my opinion, it isn't meant for tricks. Once you get on, you never have to push again.

Great calf workout too. I never use mine for tricks, my skateboard fills that void.

My Waveboard is for traveling.

That being said, the longboard still has a couple advantages.

Skateboarding. Skating is only good for playing Hockey, otherwise you just look like a douche.

Coasting takes like a day to learn how to do.

Skateboarding, on the other hand, occupies you for years.

I'm gonna be the only unbiased when it comes to fruitbo.....I mean, skating But seriously, skating isn't really fun until you get really good or there's a skatepark by your house. The fun factor of skating by your house is about the same as snowboarding on a slab of concrete.

When you skateboard, you can do all sorts of things just out in front of your house.

and if you choose skating, try to get at least ABEC 7 bearings. With them, it's almost as good for traveling as a longboard.
