Downhill Longboard Decks

At some point, every longboarder gets the urge to try a hill. However, most beginners do not know that there are various kinds of downhill longboard decks available, and that the shape and design can affect the speed and stability of the downhill ride. So what kind of board is best for you?

A plain drop deck is one of the most popular options. These downhill longboard decks offer a steadier ride, because they ride so low on the ground. Drop decks are a great choice for beginners who are just learning to take hills. You may sacrifice a small amount of speed with a drop deck, but you will gain stability. The main downside to these decks is that they are not as easy to maneuver as some of their counterparts.

Micro drop decks are a great choice for the more advanced longboarder. These boards offer many of the benefits of a drop-deck board, but they have a bit more traction, so it is easier to maneuver the board when performing tricks or turning. Double drop decks offer a nice low ride with a ton of foot space. If you are looking for stability and plenty of space on your board, this may be the best downhill board for you.
