NEWLY INTRODUCED SKATEBOARDS
Recently, there are different types of
skateboards introduced to the public.One of these
skateboards is the OneWheel, which refers to a
self-balancing electric skateboard developed by
an engineer. It started as a kickstarter but it
is now a really popular option for those who
would like to bring skateboarding to an even
higher level. Another modern skateboard thats
perfect for regular use is the Freebord. It is
designed in such a way that it can stimulate
snowboarding while you are on a pavement. It has
wide G3 trucks, similar to what you can find on a
longboard.

  • Kind of downhill skateboard racing.
  • Need to skate down a course
  • Most slalom skateboards are designed in a way
  • to increase speed, traction, and turning.
  • Also come with wheels that are larger and softer

OTHER POPULAR TYPES OF SKATEBOARDS
  • Downhill Skateboard
  • It promotes high speeds that you can get pretty
    quickly
  • Downhill skateboarding being referred to as a
    sport
  • Downhill skateboarding are the drop-platform,
    top-mount, and the drop-through skateboards
  • The best downhill skateboard is also that with
    enough stability so you can move straight even if
    you are facing a terminal velocity.

8
OTHER POPULAR TYPES OF SKATEBOARDS
  • Vert Skateboard
  • Vert skateboarding is another fun and exciting
    version of the sport. It actually refers to the
    act of riding your skateboard on vertical walls.
    In most cases, you will have to ride your
    skateboard on skate ramps or another incline.

9
OTHER POPULAR TYPES OF SKATEBOARDS
  • Street Skateboard
  • If you wish to be a street skateboarder, then
    note that you will most likely be skating in
    plazas, industrial areas, and urban streets.
  • The sizes of the wheels should also be small to
    ensure that the board is lighter to carry while
    also ensuring that the inertia overcomes quicker,
    allowing you to make your tricks even more
    manageable.

10
OTHER POPULAR TYPES OF SKATEBOARDS
  • Park Skateboard
  • It actually covers various sub-styles that those
    who often ride skateboards adopted when doing
    their tricks in parks purposely built for
    skateboarding.
  • If you are looking for a park skateboard, then
    take note that the best for you if you are below
    five feet and four inches is a board, which is
    29-inch and below in length. If you are taller
    than that, though, then you have to use a board,
    which is at least 32 inches.

11
OTHER POPULAR TYPES OF SKATEBOARDS
  • Pool Skateboard
  • It is important to use a wide pool skateboard as
    it promotes more stability and control while also
    ensuring that ride is smooth.
  • The additional width is also a good thing in
    increasing the lifespan of board.
  • The pool skateboarding requires to deal with huge
    landings that might cause the board to take a
    beating so it needs to be wide enough to handle
    the pressure.

12
OTHER POPULAR TYPES OF SKATEBOARDS
  • Cruising Skateboard
  • It involves doing the sport on a skateboard which
    lets you travel as quickly as possible on skate
    parks, general-urban areas, and ramps without
    doing certain tricks or without touching surfaces
    or stopping.
  • It is also important to pick a board, which is
    often used for general-purpose boarding, instead
    of pulling tricks.

13
OTHER POPULAR TYPES OF SKATEBOARDS
  • Off-Road Skateboard
  • It requires you to make use of a specially
    designed board that you can use almost
    everywhere, instead of just on a pavement.
  • You can also go for special off-road skateboards
    specifically designed for that purpose.
  • One of the best features in this skateboard that
    you cant find in typical ones is a brake, which
    is helpful in easily stopping when you are
    exposed to dangerous terrains.

CONCLUSION
  • If you are still a beginner in the field of
    skateboarding, then you have to do a research
    about the different skateboards and skateboarding
    styles introduced here. Then you will get an
    idea, which one works for you best.
  • I highly suggest trying the cruising skateboard
    first as it does not involve tricks yet. You can
    move on to more challenging skateboards and
    skateboarding styles as you master the tips and
    tricks of this sport. You can try best electric
    skateboard also.
