Ever wonder if you could use longboard wheels and trucks on a skateboard? Here’s the deal… You can put longboard wheels and trucks on a skateboard because the cores/baseplates are standardized.

Are off-road, all-terrain longboard wheels worth it? I would see clips of people riding them and was always curious. In this post, I’ll share my experience after testing the MBS All-Terrain wheels. Who Are They Best For?

Don’t get these if you plan on riding mushy offroad conditions. You will sink in and struggle to pick up any speed. If that’s what you’re going for, look into an actual mountainboard. These all ..read more

Longboard vs Surfskate (Explained)
Shred Shack Longboards
by Billy James
8M ago
Let’s talk about longboards vs surfskates because I’ve noticed them compared a lot. And rather then saying one is better than the other, I thought I’d share a few perspectives. What’s the difference between a surfskate and longboard? A surfskate uses a specific front truck that swivels back and forth. They’re higher off the ground, efficient for pumping flat ground, and heavier. While there are many variations of longboards, the average longboard uses reverse kingpin (RKP) trucks. RKP longboard setups will be lower to the ground, efficient for higher speeds, and better suited for beginners. Be ..read more
