Today, you can find four types of riding styles: transportation (cruising), slolam, freeride, and downhill. Longboards are excellent modes of transportation. Transportation longboards can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes. Slolam is the discipline of weaving in and out of obstacles. Freeride longboarding is riding with a focus on tricks, slides, and grabs. Downhill/bombing is the most extreme version of longboarding where riders go down long hills at the fastest speeds possible.
