Are you unfamiliar with how the search works on this forum? There are a ton of threads about Freebords. Search and you shall find.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

They ride really weird, IME. If you got the cash, go for it, but do realize that they're a one-trick pony...they pretty much ONLY do hills, so if you're looking for something to kick around on during the summer, I'd go for a longboard over that thing.

I kill the bunny hill!

Freebords are for people that can't ride a longboard. Worst fucking idea ever love seeing fucktards try to do the Copper to Frisco loop on these things they're so janky and out of control they almost always eat shit and die.

If you live in an area with steep hills then a freebord might be a good choice. But what a longboarder would call pretty steep a freeborder would call mellow.

I have one but i seldom ride it anymore, so much easier to ride the a longboard, easier on the flats and overall funnier.

Freebord is similar to snowboarding but it does not feel the same, mainly because on a freebord you use your ankles much more to initiate turns.

If you live in San Fransisco or something similar buy a freebord, if you live anywhere else buy a longboard.
