WHAT TO LOOK FOR: DOWNHILL VS. FREERIDE SLIDING
Downhill longboarding has become unquestionably desirable, and the search for longboards that can reach higher speeds has been covetable.
What to look for:
-Top Mount *optional*
More downhill options here.
4 time World Series Champion, the Landyachtz 39" Evo.
Though downhill and freeride do come hand-in-hand; for those who would like a downhill / freeride longboard, you will need to consider these other features for the best slides.
-Harder wheels (78a and higher)
-Smaller wheel (65mm and smaller)
More freeride options here.
The Moonshine 32" Spark.
The Loaded 37" Overland.
The DB 36" Lunch Tray.
Nevertheless, you can make any longboard/skateboard slide, but a shorter board will be able to slide easier, harder wheels will stick to the concrete less.
