The growing popularity of Longboarding
Longboards were first developed on the West Coast half a century ago, so they have been around for quite a while. But it is only recently that they have grown in popularity. While longboards are mostly used for fun and sport, there are many who use them for transportation, especially college students. Longboarding is quite popular on college campuses across the United States and many students love travelling to school on a longboard instead of using a bike.

Quest Longboard Review
Generally, the longboarding community has taken well to the Quest Super Cruiser Artisan Bamboo Longboard. There are several glowing user reviews for this longboard from people who have contacted us. Such as this one by a satisfied buyer, Jaki Martinez:“I love this board, the carving on it put most of my friend’s boards to shame. Although the bearings could be upgraded so I went out and bought these separately. Highly recommended.”
Kerry, who bought the Quest Super Cruiser Longboard for her child also has words of appreciation for it: “My 10-year old daughter wanted a longboard to skate with her friends. Since we live in northern Canada and the season is short, I didn’t want to spend a fortune, so I bought this Quest board on price alone. And I didn’t regret buying blind. It’s even strong enough to hold the weight of my husband!”
Another buyer, Peter Smith also loves this longboard: “The board is fast and carves well. As a beginner, I found this board easy to ride. The board could have been a bit wider, but cruising boards tend to be slimmer. The wheels are very smooth and the grip is like clue keeping you on the board”.
