    I don't do too much cruising anymore. I have a need for speed. :P

    Unless you count commuting to class.

    When summer time comes around, I head to the NJ shore and hit all the boardwalks.
    Why walk when you could push?

    i cruise all the time. its what got me into longboarding just riding around on an old dregs single kick board.. now i have a devoted cruiser that i ride to go to school and back when i have a flat on my bike. or when i need to go to a friends house or to the local market place i jsut ride my board, biking sometimes is to much of hassle.

    All I do is cruize! It's nice just to mellow out and take a nice long cruize around town to forget all my problems

    If you love cruising please comment below!! Okay I take that back, if you read this post your opinion below please!!!!!
    I'd rather watch videos of people freeriding/downhill riding rather than cruising. Not to say I don't love cruising. I love it. But watching someone roll down a hill's not the same as seeing someone hit 100+ foot stand-up slides.

    You should try sidewalk surfing, its fun when you get going fast, pumping in and out of driveways, throwing bert and check slides, etc. I've actually found that bombing sidewalks has got to be one of the sketchiest and most exciting things in skateboarding.

    When i cruise around i end up going fairly fast. Even uphill.
    Nothin beats throwing half cabs, blunts, and mannys on your way to the girlfriends house.

    Every morning 2 miles to school And sometimes back after school too. Skating with a backpack isn't my thing though..and it's completely flat other then some little things. I'm SO moving somewhere near a beach when I'm older!

    Did you see the sidewalk bomb that Kyle Martin did in Episode 19? That was pretty gnar.

    Yeah, but that was preceeded and succeeded by check slides, along with all other slides that he did.

    I do a lot of hill bombing and freeriding, but I do still cruise, though I have to be in the right mood for it. Sometimes I do it to blow off some steam, other times I do it to think about things, etc.

    I've spent a lot of time practicing manuals so I'm pretty good at them now, and that helps keep cruising interesting too, which is nice, heh heh.

    Love cruising. However I live in Hill Country here in the middle of MA, so pretty much all there is to do around here on a board is bomb hills. It's not really my thing. I prefer the simple cruise. It's just damn fun.

    crazy about crewsing and carving

    like some hills mixed in there sometimes also. pushing is my favourite pass time and getting to the flats are the hills. walking the steeper ones but carving the less steep. this is the four or five mile commute to work. can make it longer if in the mood

    True that! I won't even walk to my mail box anymore unless it's snowed out.

    But yeah, I just cruise around all the time, going exploring and what not. I won't pass up a good hill if I see one though.

    thats why cross country skis can come in handy, less work than walking to the mailbox in winter. Although sometimes you do look stupid skiing 10 feet then turning around...

    Default Re: Does anyone just cruise anymore?

    although cruising is what got me into the sport, i rarely do it anymore. i still commute from A to B a lot but i usually push like a madman and try to go as fast as possible so its more fun. cruising just for the sake of cruising? did that maybe twice in 2011.

    sliding - 40%
    dh - 59%
    crusing - 1%

    this statistic is for skating for the sake of skating. all skateboarding:

    skating for the sake of it - 70%
    commuting - 30%

    so if you count commutes as cruising, i still cruise a whole lot. i never walk anywhere if its dry outside.
