Decks in the length range of 37-43" will be ideal for downhill. A shorter deck will leave you feeling unstable at high speeds while a longer deck will lack maneuverability. We do, however, recommend that beginners stick with longer setups until they are accustomed to higher speeds.
Apart from this, how dangerous is downhill longboarding? Longboarding is more dangerous than skateboarding, a new study suggests. Longboarders were at much greater risk of head fracture, traumatic brain injury and bleeding inside the skull (intracranial hemorrhage) than skateboarders. ...
That, what is the best type of longboard for beginners?

Are drop through longboards good for downhill?
The big difference: Pintail decks are mounted on TOP of the trucks. They are great for cruising and carving and for most ride styles that keep you under 25 mph, while Drop Throughs have the trucks mounted through the deck. They are great for faster speed riding, downhill, and some long distance riding.
