LongBoarding started in Hawaii in 1970's when surfers couldn't ride during low tide or beaches were closed. Longboards felt more like surfing then it did a riding a skateboard. It then spread to California and throughout the states.


Longboarders have reached records of 80 miles per hour down highways and even down highway roads in mountains and even passing cars. Longboarding can cause serious injury though because most don't wear any protection and usually have injuries because they hit cars, signs, or just the road.
