From its origins as a land-based alternative to surfing, one that incorporated the wheels and trucks used by skateboarders, longboarding, developed in Hawaii during the 1950s, has come a long way. In the 1970s, when the sport was seen as a form of self-expression, it was more of a do-it-yourself hobby. Today, longboarding is bigger than ever. This book describes the sport's history, gives riders an idea of how to choose their equipment and begin practicing this unique sport. From mere transportation, to obstacle slaloming, freeriding, dancing, and freestyling, readers will be impressed with the many styles of this ever-changing pastime.
