    How hard is it to skateboard or longboard?

    I want to begin longboarding just to get to classes and stuff faster...how hard is it really just to ride.. I don't have the best balance...I have tried skateboarding on friends skateboards when I was like 12 or 13 and busted my ass many times....Also which is easier long boarding or skateboarding...not sure if its the same thing.

    any advice would be appreciated

    a regular skateboard is easier to just ride. a longboard is harder to maneuver. neither should be THAT hard to ride, i don't think. then again, i first tried when i was like 5 or 6.

    I learned how to longboard within one day, although I had ridden a skateboard before. Controlling a longboard is a bit more difficult than a regular skateboard just because of the speed you pick up and the height of the deck, but once you learn to carve it's smooth sailing.
    Excuses are just tools of incompetence

    And those who specialize in the uses

    Depends...regular skateboards are meant for like tricks and sh!t not so much just to ride. For ur situation id advise you to get a long board just b/c they are much faster and smoother..perfect for just traveling. I do both and long boards are a bit harder to ride but nothing a little practice can't fix..

    Thing how hard to manouver belongs on how broad it is, start with a 9.75-9.6" afaik standard.

    I was too tall and started to late skateboarding.

    Sk8boarding is not a crime, neither RocketScience.

    This year was the first time I actually used a board to get to my classes. I had no prior experience on skateboards and such so it took me a couple of weeks to get used to it and 2 accidents (watch out of cracks). I def want to get something smaller than the long board I am using since its a pain to carry around and store.

    Well it sounds like just practice is needed. I dont want to go around skateboarding on campus and bust my ass in front of everybody.

    Not that hard. My friend taught me to longboard in about two hours. Make sure the pavement is smooth when you learn. Oh, also, make sure you learn how to stop. She forgot to teach me that and I ate shit. I still harass her over it.

    Skateboarding is a little harder, but not impossible.
