Pocket Guide to Longboarding Ver 2.0 After the success of our first Pocket Guide we saw the need to make some revisions for 2012. Last year we saw an explosion in the popularity of free riding and sliding, as well as continued growth in cruising and commuting. Every facet of Longboarding is growing and progressing each year, this means new products as well as new companies are appearing all the time.
It’s not all popsicle sticks and teeny wheels, right?! So, here’s a quick and general guide to the basic categories of boards and the disciplines they’re designed for. None of this means you can’t skate anything, anywhere, but for those of you wanting to figure out what all those terms mean in the rest of the Buyer’s Guide, here’s a look at the general disciplines and some iconic shapes and setups you might recognize.
Since 1977 we have loved and lived skateboards! Over the years we have seen skateboarding go through many changes. But one thing has never changed. Skateboarding is driven by the sheer passion for the sport that those who love it possess. High speed, wind in the hair freedom, excitement and relaxation. It is that energy that drives the team at Malibu Skateboards. Our mission is to bring back the original passion that sparked the fire we see today in skate parks, on the streets, and in the eye of each and every unique skateboarder looking to carve out their own place in this incredible world. Join Mailibu Skateboards and create your own path!

For 2011, Rotule has decided to relaunch its board lineup, taking it up to the quality level of the Speed Karrot. Our new board, the Desert Eagle, is available as you read this! Then the Brainwash, the 4 Footer and the Slider will be re-released, all with new radical changes. Desert Eagle: the second precision board from Rotule. Like the Speed Karrot, the Eagle has very tight radiuses and a complex free-form shape. What you have here is a 37.55” long symmetrical racing topmount with freeride abilities. It features a shape-integrated gas pedal, a tuck pocket, a small radial drop and a comfortable “W” concave. Also, for a premium foot locking, we’ve put very sharp edges and a sweet spot located just before the drop, which is the designed to fit your foot and lock it on 360 degree. rotulelongboards.com
