This is a killer board for carving down steep hills thanks to the springy, 5-ply hybrid deck construction. The comfortable stance and tight wheelbase make it perfect for cruising around town and shooting across campus, too.

Commuter - Longboards for general cruising, ideal for experienced skaters and beginners alike. Never make the boring mistake of walking again!
Carving - Deep carves, boardwalk cruising and mellow hills are calling you. You'll find the longest wheelbases in this category meant for big turns and big fun.
Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity giving you a more responsive and stable ride.
Camber - Camber gives you a charged feeling underfoot and better leverage for turns. They can feel a bit more like a spring at first but any rider will appreciate how this makes the board responsive.
Directional - Directional decks may have a dramatically asymmetrical shape or just a slight taper which can be great for anything from mild cruising to intense downhill; but of course it's all just preference.
Cutouts - Cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite.
Mild Concave - Most longboards have a mild concave to give your feet natural curves to lock into. Choosing the right concave can be tough because it's all personal preference but mild concave is always a good place to start.
5 Ply - 5 plies sandwiched together for a lightweight, flexible ride.
Bamboo + Maple - This construction features vertically laminated bamboo and maple plies sandwiched together give you a board that is springy and forgiving while still being super durable for cruising around.
