tonyisnowhere I think what needs to be remembered here is that every board discipline has its riding style. Hating on a freeborder is like hating on a surfer because they use the water instead of the snow. Freebording never claims to take over long boarding they are different disciplines.

+1. I longboard so I can testify on the hate. Takes away from the discipline and pain undergone while learning how to do proper slides or spins. But I fuckin love snowboarding too much to give a fuck about tradition. But I'd say it's more like snowboarding being introduced for the first time to Skiers. I'm really dying to get one these because my city is hilly as fuck.

Saw a good comment on YouTube, a response to a long boarder freebord hater..."it's not a longboard, it's not supposed to be a longboard, or have anything to do with long boarding, it's meant to emulate snowboard riding on street, that's all, cunt"....I liked that

No reason IMO that they be mutually exclusive, I got my eye on a sweet longboard too! Ha
Totally agree, if it looks like fun, I want one.

You mide as well get one of these too.

Big Foot I have always wanted to try one of those, but I also like having skin. So i've always been on the fence.

GreyDragon I've had a Freebord for about the last three years.
I thought it would be a great way to maintain training for snowboarding.
I've tried it on and off, but I just can't get consistent with it, so I put it away after a few days each year trying it again.

Finding a long enough slope without alot of traffic is the biggest obstacle imo.

Tony I've had a freeboard for a few years. It works really well and really does mimic snowboarding pretty accurately. Like a few posts say, you need a good downhill, and have to walk it back up, unfortunately like snowboarding as well.

One of the main reasons I don't ride it that much is if you catch an edge, there is almost no coming back. Definitely not as forgiving as riding on snow in terms of riding AND falling. If you use bindings it makes it even worse.

But in all falls dont happen much if the pavement is clear, and the feeling of snowboarding on the street is well worth it.

bringing this post back to life

So winter is over on the east coast and I own a freebord. anyone near me ride? I am always looking to improve my board disciplines.

Whoracle I had a freeboard for a while, picked it up off of craigslist for fairly cheap. It was kinda of fun, a fairly steep learning curve. It mimics the look and maybe a little bit of the feel of snowboarding, but it is a totally different animal to ride. Speed is your friend on these, they don't work well until you get going down a decent slope and can actually slide. It is also extremely difficult/impossible to push them, you have to be going downhill, so i hope you have some good hills with someone to ferry you to the top lol.
