Everything You Need to Know
Crowded places aren’t suitable for longboards, you’ll need something maneuverable and responsive. It’s also a bad idea to commute in crowded places if you’re a beginner. You’ll likely hurt someone or yourself and traffic can be dangerous. As always, make sure you at least wear a helmet and kneepads when starting out. You still need a brain to skateboard.
One of the best mini cruisers is the Landyachtz Dinghy. The Dinghy is the little brother of the Tug Boat and the parts are high quality and are very well-tuned. The Dinghy is the favorite among cruisers and works extremely well out of the box! Check out the test drive I did with a friend. I did an in-depth review recently if you want all the details, this board is a rock star.
