Humpty Dumpty's Death
Ouch! I just fell off my longboard. Longboards became popular in the 1950’s, and yet I didn't get mine til last year. Longboards are my favorite type of skateboards.

The top companies producing longboards are one, Sector 9; two, Quest; three, Atom; four, Yocaher; and five, Eightbit. Longboards are as long as 24 in. to 80 in. Longboards are one hundred fifty dollars to three hundred dollars. Longboards are usually made from about two to eleven layers of plywood; they can also be made up of birch, oak, koa, maple, and bamboo is also popular when making longboards. Longboards originated from the sport surfing, and earlier longboards looked kind of like surfboards. It is said that riding longboards is easier than riding skateboards. Longboards have different decks, trucks,and wheels used for what you want to be doing on your longboard. Different types of boards include skateboards, longboards, shortboard, old school, cruisers, and penny boards. There are different ways to ride your longboard like cruising, slalom, freeriding, or bombing.Cruising is about riding down sloped streets, this is the most likely type of riding for a new rider. Free riding is riding down hills with quite amount of speed, or doing tricks over jumps and other stuff. Bombing longboarding is about flying down hills as fast as you can in a crouching position to lessen wind resistance. Slalom is riding in between cones sliding between tight places.
All in all, Longboards are my favorite type of skateboard. Longboards became popular in the 1950’s and I didn't get mine til last year. It hurts to fall off your longboard.
