Freebords - oh yes they work

Had one for several years now. Painful learning curve, but it's a hoot once you get it. The steeper the street the better. It really is a lot like snowboarding.

Hate to bash a "skateboard", but as a life long skater, I just do not see it. There are a bunch ( t-Board, the wave, stowboard, flowboard, street board, flowboard, snakeboard) of wanna be skateboards for people with cash to ride. Get a real longboard and go bomb a hill, ar a street deck and rip the park or supermarket parking lot. As far as these others, you might as well be on rollerblades or a razor scooter. The freeboard looks the most similar, but I'm still call BS.

Dude, nothing compares to snowboarding on ground like a Streetboard. Sure skateboarding has fliptricks, but for us snowboarders, that doesn't help the jib factor and big air during off-season. freebords are ok... I guess. C'mon dude skiers are usually rollerbladers, but if you strap into a snowboard.. why wouldnt you strap into your streetboard?? and that scooter comment was pretty irreverent when you realize that this is STREETBOARDING...

I used to have a free board. it was awesome going down hill, but kinda sucked if you have to push across anything flat just like a snowboard. i'd say that if you have the bindings on the only difference is when you ketch your downhill edge your heading for a face plant on concrete instead of snow. thats why i stopped ridding it. its sooooo mucsh closer than any of the other flow, snakeboards. not everyone wants to ride a streetboard all the time, i love to longboard but eventually speed wobble hits you at the bottom of a hill and you've got to head for the grass if your going faster than you can run bc you can drag your foot to slow down. freeboards dont have speed wobble and you can controll your speed easliy. i would warn if you lean too far back on you heal edge your butt will find the ground pretty fast. mine is up for sale at the used gear place in north boulder if you wanna get a cheap one. hehe

I like these, they are fun, and carving downhill and in bowls is smooth.
