Futhermore, what is the fastest someone has gone on a longboard? Records. The land speed record on a longboard of 146.73 km/h (91.17 mph) was set in 2017 by Peter Connolly.
Be that as it may, how dangerous is longboarding?
Longboarders were at much greater risk of head fracture, traumatic brain injury and bleeding inside the skull (intracranial hemorrhage) than skateboarders.
How do I choose a skate helmet?
Choosing your skating helmet is pretty simply – you just need to know your head size. Your helmet needs to be the right size for both comfort and efficiency in the event of an accident. It's not rocket science measuring your head but whatever the measurement, you should always try on your helmet before buying.

It's small, lightweight, easy to carry around and take with you everywhere. A cruiser is not so well-suited for traveling far or for riding very fast. A longboard is more stable and comfortable for pushing long distances and for riding downhill at higher speeds.
For faster and smoother rides, the wheels of a longboard are large and soft. Skateboards have smaller and harder wheels to make it easier to shred rails, ledges, and gaps. If you plan to just cruise on your board, softer wheels give a smoother and more coordinated ride.
Workout and Lose Fat Longboarding is possibly the most enjoyable way to lose those unwanted bits. Slam on your longboard and after only an hour of skating, you'll burn 300 calories in a 125-pound person and 444 calories in an 185-pound person. Skate every day and you'll be burning between 2000 – 3000 calories a week.
Most longboarders can't really relate. To the casual longboarder, skateboarding and longboarding are one in the same, it's just that some people choose to ride a bigger board and some ride a smaller board based on what they want to do.
Tendonitis and sprains — Tendonitis and sprains in the feet, ankles, and knees are common due to overuse and pressure placed on the feet while skateboarding. There is usually localized pain, swelling, and stiffness. A sprain will occur suddenly while tendonitis often develops over time.
