SOLA Bamboo Premium

best cruising longboard

A Budget-friendly option, I must say. It comes with a 38” length and 9.7” width which makes it very comfortable for a beginner like me to manage. It is a medium lengthen longboard which makes it comfortable to ride on for everyone.

I am personally amazed by the design which is the dropdown deck. That is, the deck is installed below the wheel truck of the longboard. This feature comes in use when you need to get instant brakes as well as easy long rides. As the manufacturers have used bamboo and maple for its deck.

Both of them combine to make a sturdy longboard for cruising along the streets and pavements. It is a nice option so far in the range of cheap longboards for cruising. Although there are some cases where the deck has been cracked due to being overweight but I must recommend a maximum of 200lbs at most.

looking for big wheels when it comes to purchasing a cruising longboard because they help maneuver the longboard very easy as well as help avoid the wheel bites. You just need to be careful of the bearings used in the wheels which are of average or below average in some cases quality, you may need to get them changed but apart from that it is a fairly good option if you are on a tight budget.

Final words

In the end, I would like to say that Sola Bamboo 38” longboard is one of the best longboards for cruising at a low price and fairly good performance level. All in all you won’t be disappointed.

I recommend all the beginners as well as the kids to start with this one as it will be easy to maneuver and thrill to ride on. It comes with good quality among the rest of the longboards for cruising as per the price comparison.

MAGNETO  44 Inch Kick tail Cruiser

best cruiser longboard for beginners

All I can say is that it is a longboard like no other. A beautiful deck made of Maple inner core and Bamboo outer layer gives it strength like no other. It has the flexibility to run down the slopes nonstop, and stiffness for easy commuting and carving along the streets.

The beautiful sand gritted wood finish without grip tape makes it a delight for the eyes. The pintail that is used for down hilling and dancing is also an added feature. What else, it has wheels that are made of semi-soft material that make them smooth to glide yet their transparency again adds to the beauty of the board.

The length of the board gives you the free space of easy footwork that is required for dancing longboards. The reverse kingpins and the gravity-centered aluminum trucks facilitate ease in movements, quick turns around the corner, and less energy required for pushing.

This longboard is the best amongst its peers given the price and quality. It is an advanced-level longboard and not suitable for kids, although it is versatile and can perform multifunction still it is too big for a young kid to use as a learner board.

Final words

Just go for it, that is all I have to say about this board in the end because no matter which angle I like to see it from it comes to perfect. Its’ all up to you, how you want to ride your board. Like, if you want to go for the campus on the daily basis then all you need to do is tighten up your wheel trucks a little bit and you are good to go.

They should learn to ride a cheaper one first which would allow them much better control and speed management.

Such a beautiful board to come into view. This board is technically made for beginners as well as experienced riders. The top-mount deck made of Maple wood which is said to be pretty strong and flexible but is not much.

If you want to ride along the parks and commute to the college or your campus then you need to have a shorter board for yourself so that it is easy to carry and less weight. If you are interested in going long distances, down hilling with friends, and doing some freestyling then you can definitely go for a longer board like 38” to 44” length.


Most of the longboards for cruising and carving come with pretty strong decks made up of Maple in 7-ply which then are laminated. There are others offering a strong combo of Canadian Maple and Bamboo that also results in a sturdy and durable longboard that is able to tolerate a lot of weight almost up to 200lbs and above in some cases.


Now grip tape is a kind of sand paper that is attached to the top of the deck of a longboard. It ensures the grip and foot balance of the rider while riding the longboard. Most of the grip tapes are made of Aluminum oxide, which is a cheaper material and tends to worn out and lose its grip after some time of use. There are good quality grip tapes also that are made up of a very hard material, silicon carbide, and are more durable and long-lasting than the aluminum ones.

Top Mount deck longboards

Top is the type of longboard in which the trucks are attached underneath the deck. This helps in the good management of speed, quick and tight turns. It gives you an edge on good foot space on the deck but it also causes the rise in the deck from the ground level.

Drop Through deck longboards

This type of truck mount helps in the good stabilization of the board and fewer wobbles with less energy used to push the board. Such boards are considered the best longboard cruisers. They are also good for long-distance commuting to the campus.

Drop Down deck longboards

This is the type of longboard in which the trucks are located similar to the top mount but right after the truck attachments underneath the board, the deck drops down. The nose and tail of the deck remain elevated. This gives a good sliding experience with good steep control to the rider.

Double Drop deck longboards

This is the combo of Drop-Through and Drop-Down longboards. That is it is a drop deck that is situated on the drop-through structure.

Kick tail longboards

These longboards have ultra-soft wheels.

Downhill longboards

Longboards for down hilling come in all shapes and sizes with smaller wheels which allow the rider to slip, slide and control the speed with ease.  They have the stiffest and hard decks. They have hard urethane wheels. These longboards are usually top mount decks for easy sliding, speed, and sharp turns.

Dancing longboards

These are huge longboards for dancing considering their size. As the rider has a foot of space in front and at the back of its feet on the board. These long and wide longboards are best for dancing, changing footsteps, and walking on the deck. They are quite feasible for showing different dancing techniques.

Free styling longboards

Free riding longboards

These boards are a lot similar to the freestyling ones but the difference mainly lies in the stiff decks and hard wheels that facilitate high speed along sliding slopes and hills.

Commuting longboards

Regular kingpins

Standard kingpin or regular kingpin is the position of the truck hangers higher. These are good for cruising, carving, etc. they are mostly set in the top mount decks. These trucks provide low stability. These make good longboards for cruising.

Best Longboard Brands for Cruising
