Skateboards and Commuting – Suggestions and Reviews

A Skateboard for Commuting?

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.

6 Best Mini Cruiser Skateboards – Tested & Approved

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.

FOUR DAYS A week Andy Ross travels—by car, train, and bus—120 miles from his home in Auburn, California, to his job at a bank in San Francisco. His eight-hour round-trip typically begins at 6 a.m. He’ll be at his desk by 10, having begun work earlier on his laptop. He leaves the office by 4 p.m. and arrives home about 8.

Ross became a “supercommuter” eight years ago, after he left a tech business and took the bank job. He joined nearly 105,000 people who spend at least 90 minutes getting to jobs in the Bay Area. Ross and his wife kept their four-bedroom home in Auburn rather than move to San Francisco, where the median price is $1.4 million—more than three times that in Auburn. “I love working at my job. As a result, I’m now doing this crazy commute,” he says. “There are a lot more of us long-haul commuters” than a decade ago.
