Longboarders have already discovered the tremendous benefits that the sport of longboarding has to offer: Fitness, time savings and smooth-ride down paved hills.
Did you know that you can ride your longboard down grass hills as well? There are two cool reasons why you might want to do this.
1. Grass has speed-taming effect. At the park and picking up a tad too much speed? See an open grassy patch? Carve it. It takes some getting used to, but you’ll be glad you did it if you get out of control.
2. Steeper hills. On paved surfaces, there’s a limit to what most of us will tackle. The fact is, on grass, since there’s more friction to slow you down, you can tackle steeper hills without getting up to dangerous speeds. It’s loads of fun.
