Best Most Interesting Form of Alternative Transportation

Longboards

Editors' Picks

Though the origin of the first longboard may be disputed, that they have always had a place in skateboard culture is not. For years, the occasional longboard has clack-clack-clacked down Boise sidewalks (only where it's legal, of course) alongside its shorter brethren, but during the last year or so, it seems like even more of them are out on the concrete. Soft wheels, a longer wheelbase and more comfortable riding lend themselves to the love of the longboard, and with last summer's gas crunch, the economical, fairly easy-to-learn longboard leapt from counterculture kid's toy to a viable form of gas-free transportation.
