I tried both..The FreeBord is definitely more tricky to learn, and actually easier at speed...like a snowboard. But the feeling of catching an edge on those wheels was present in my head. Longboard is a much more mellow ride. I'll stick with that and easy grades or pumping for exercise.

That's why I was asking if any certain longoard wheels work on freeboards. Freeboard only has 3 different wheels to choose from...these wheels in particular do look a little sharp on the edges so I see what you'd mean by catching an edge. All that would take is a lean in the wrong direction.



Freeboard is now selling these new wheels with rounded edges, although they do have a slightly smaller diameter. (72mm vs. 78mm)



And then they have these, which have a ton of good reviews and one person who even put them on his longboard because he liked the way they performed. http://www.freebordstore.com/edge-wh...-slashers.html



Looks to me like catching an edge would only be likely with the blue ones. But still I'd like more options and colors. I was looking at a setup yesterday and found it would be cheaper to get the blue wheels with a board then it would be to get the standard wheels and then buy the blue ones later. There wasn't an option for the orange ones with the board though.
