Default Freebording???

the company is called freebord and they make skateboards that have extra wheels in the middel that make the skateboard behave like a snowboard. there are plenty of videos on youtube that show what it is.

anybody does this on this forum? it looks very very fun and might offer an alternative to snowboarding in the summer time. i guess the problem is finding long, smooth, downhill roads that would make it possible to mimic downhill boarding. i think even boarding down a multideck parking lot is possible.

In my opinon, the concept is cool but I do not think the company executed very well. From my understanding, learning to ride those things is tough. I agree with ShredLift too - I think freebording is generally received as a gimmicky by the rest of the skateboarding community - but hey - I could be wrong.

I personally stick with longboarding. It's got its own learning style and longboarding is wayy more dynamic. How do you even push on a freebord?? Constantly re-aligning your feet under those "clip" things? No thank you.

If I had a friend who had an extra freebord I'd certainly give it a try but I'm not going out of my way...just my 2 cents
