and push…

I set this site up to help those interested in getting into longboarding or e-boarding (especially the youthful older ones like me, who may not have skateboarded for a long time :->) and to highlight some of the less well-known small time longboard makers, including many Europeans, who are making this sport and pastime a real joy right now.

I have tried to capture all the various things I have learned in taking up longboarding and e-boarding to help anyone else looking to take it up – which I thoroughly recommend, it is a lot of fun.

There is no commercial intent behind this site and I make no money from it and get no freebies – this is just me rambling on and trying to help.

About

I am no longboard, or skateboard, expert; just someone who has taken it up later in life (a dad with two boys who, thankfully, let me longboard with them) and learned much on the way.

We live in London in the UK and longboard, both traditional push and electric, around the local neighborhood or when we go traveling.

Bolt Motion, a new company in Bergamo Italy, has launched a really small motorized board, just 23″ (60cm) long. Looks very cute and I really like the simplicity. personally, I am not a fan of e-skates with small wheelbases – I get the advantage of portability but prefer to have the greater stability at speed of longer wheelbases.
