A coasting vehicle, relativly close to a skateboard, but twice the size.
Manuvered with your body movements according to the direction in which you want to go.
Also,
extremely dangerous and extremely kickass. :)

The fastest expanding form of skateboarding. Contrary to popular belief, the sport is greatly expansive beyond bros in board shorts (sadly, these are the most vocal assholes who own longboards, but are not necessarily longboarders). Disciplines include downhilling (trying to go as fast as possible, serious practitioners will wear leathers and full face helmets), freeriding (essentially doing slides and tricks combined with anything downhill, mostly done for fun), and freestyle (emulating shortboard tricks on larger decks). As the downhill riding community is starting to go mainstream, a proper comparison to regular short boards would be that of downhill/freestyle mtb to bmx; while both may have the same forms and ideas supporting them, their applications are greatly different and require skills respective to each, and thusly the similarities in said forms are not necessarily applicable to the ways they are used. Basically, regarding all the hate those who enjoy riding street/ park on a shortboard: don't worry about how other people are having fun and just enjoy what you do (I will say, if you wear flip flops while "skating" or ride a pintail cruiser, please; just stop).
Longboarder: Today I had a great longboarding sesh: started off railing a toeside corner going 40, then got my freeride deck out and got a 30ft standie, and finished off the day cruising around learning some big spins and old school kickflips for poops and giggles.

Skater: You do any park or street shit?

Longboarder: No, taking a longboard into a skatepark is ridiculous and annoying, though I sometimes ride bowls with my shortboard.

Longboarding is a way of life. When you longboard the earth stops spinning. Many people refer to it as a sport, but its life.
longboarding is gnarly.

Like a cross between surfing and skateboarding, but 10 times as kickass, longboarding involves a long board from 30' to 49' long, on average. Longboarding down big hills can put you at 50 MPH, and falling will be really bloody. Carving is the main movement in longboarding, and involves leaning to turn and slow down while bombing a hill.
Im goin skateboarding after school. you in?

Fuck that! longboarding is for the real bad asses

No way, skateboarding you can do tricks! longboarding is gay. you have to stay on the ground

Its practicers are attracted to the long, phallic shape. They think they are more manly than anyone else who rolls, because of the board's penile shape and the riding style: standing stoicly like a man, without squatting, thrusting, or contorting of any sort.

No tricks of any sort, strictly manly stances. The one kinda cool thing they can do is slalom down a hill to scrub off speed, similar to a snowboarder. They will still jump off the moment things get dicey.

In reality these guys are passed by grandmas on 3-speed bicycles, even downhill.
Longboarding looks kinda cool...oh wait, that old lady just passed him on her grandma's bike.
