Well, it's definitely not going to hurt your balance any. Ride it up. Longboards and hills are a blast. Just remember that no matter how hard you try, you can't replace snow with concrete. The riding will always be different. That being said, I do believe that skateboarding and longboarding and other various board sports are good fillers for when there is no snow to get to.

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

I started skateboarding this summer. It's been tough but I can definitely tell that it's going to help me ride better this winter. It's good physical conditioning using many of the same muscles that are really difficult to work using resistance or machines at the gym If we had any hills around me I would've probably gone for longboarding instead, but on flat land that seems like a waste of money & time & effort, so instead I'm a 30-year old skateboarding n00b.

I believe freebording mimics snowboarding on street more than longboarding..

I use a . I'd recommend a Cruiser skateboard, a Carve Board, or a longboard designed to turn. (special trucks)
