    Question Does anyone just cruise anymore?

    Hey, I just wanted to see if anyone was a cruise addict like me. All I ever see now is free riders and downhill riding, but I would turn down any hill for a chance to cruise. Of course i also live in Indiana A.K.A. drive 30 miles to get a hill.
    If you love cruising please comment below!! Okay I take that back, if you read this post your opinion below please!!!!!

    Of course! That is what got me into this part of the sport after all.


    Nothing better than cruising around my town. Also now that I'm getting my 180 heels and toeside standup slides at jogging speed, cruising just got more fun.

    I love to cruise around. I mostly just cruise and carve; I love the feeling of gliding along on the board. It's still my core interest in skating even if I dabble in other stuff. I don't have to be doing tricks constantly to have fun. I do want to learn as much as I can though and expand my skill set far beyond what I can do now.

    Cruising is what I love most about Longboarding! Of course, I also love freeriding, but it's nice to just go out with your headphones in and just ridee.

    Oh I love to cruise! I do it just about everyday! Many of my friends can't do any freeride or don't want to race, so we just cruise with them. Then when they leave, it gets really competitive.

    I'm lucky to live in an area where I can just ride down my local hill to where its flat for miles, or I can walk up the street for a little ways and I have a sick freeriding neighborhood.

    I agree with rzm61, once you get those steezy 180 heels and toes, cruising gets alot better

    Here's my longboarding timeline:

    crusing---learn slides---low speed freeride---medium speed freeride---racing the neigborhood---??? <--Still improving

    cruising is rad. nothing quite like busting out some dancing manuevers or just carving.

    I'm in Illinois, so I empathisize Megg45.
    The feeling of crusing is what got me initially hooked...and when I add in some boardwalking there's no greater feeling.
    When I'm with the right people and in the right setting, crusing rocks.

    However, I need to challenge myself and push the envelope which is where the love for going fast and sliding comes in.

    Cruising and carving is what attracted me to longboarding. Keeps the stoke up when I can't surf.

    I grew up in Indiana, so I can sympathize (Warsaw to be exact...) I had to escape and come to the Beach in Cali. Endless summer and a wicked cruise up and down the Venice Beach Boardwalk. You get to carve/slalom and cruise through an ever changing run.

    Of course! Whenever I am tired, stressed, or just need a little break, I hop on my longboard and just ride. Sometimes a nice long longboard ride is all you need to take that weight off you shoulders! Sometime I just hop on my board to get from place to place as well.

    I love to cruise whenever it's super super cold, throw on my down coat and just push somewhere. Otherwise, I'm out freeriding or something. I think the reason you don't see cruising videos is simply because it's not exciting to watch
