Longboards keep getting more original, more technically advanced and more interesting looking. But before we introduce our longboard of choice today and for all you longboard ‘virgins’ out there, allow us to explain the difference between a skateboard and a longboard. The latter, as the name suggests, are longer than the typical skateboard, and while skateboards are ideal for parks and ramps, longboards are more suited for cruising and covering longer distances. They are also more stable and don’t require excellent balancing skills. Now, onto the longboard that we want to rave and rant about – the Super Cruiser Artisan Bamboo Longboard designed by Quest.
This longboard is 44 inches long and has a wonderful Bamboo and Maple deck made from multi-ply hardwood, decorated with abstract graphics. The board comes with strong 7-inch-aluminum trucks, sturdy 70mm wheels and a kick tail. When you look at the Super Cruiser Longboard the first words that come to mind are quality, style and bad ass attitude. The longboard’s maker – US-based company Quest – has teamed up with some of the leaders in the skateboarding world to make a product that is a synergy of top quality components, appealing art and innovative technology.
The Super Cruiser will definitely give you that excitement and sense of adventure wherever you might go with it. This longboard provides smooth and relaxed transportation, it is rugged and ideal for cruising around town. Its dimensions are 44 x 9 x 43 inches and it weighs 8.2 pounds. The majority of the people who have bought Quest’s longboards have had them for years now and swear by their durability. If you are contemplating buying one of them, we have just three words of advice: “Enjoy the ride!”
