Buying guide

As I beginner I didn’t know what to look for, with a bit of experience now I do. When deciding longboards for girls, you need to look at what riding style you will have and how comfortable the board will be, easy to ride, how easily it turns etc.

We discuss these factors below.

What’s your riding style?

Do you want to dance, cruise or use it to get around? Stable boards are good for getting around, and you can also consider penny boards if you want something extremely compact. If you want to push, get a drop down board with wide trucks, you get stability and an easy time pushing.

For dancing, top mounts are great. If you are planning on dancing, get a board that is 40in and longer so you have space to move around and do tricks like this badass girl. Watch how she utilises the space on her board and how it maneuvers. You want something like for dancing.

If you want to cruise, almost any board will do (as this is the safest riding style) but you want something that turns and rides easy.  Don’t simply pick a pink longboard, look into it and get the best board.

Larger wheels will roll easier!

a longboard wheelYou know how skateboard wheels can’t roll over pebbles? Large longboard wheels can overcome that. The larger the wheel diameter (70mm is perfect for cruising), the easier it rolls over surfaces and smoother the board rides.

This determines how easily it rides. You also want to get soft wheels. These really grip well and absorb the roughness of the road. Its underestimated but they make skating a lot better.

Wide trucks will be more stable!

Wide trucks (10in) are more stable than narrow ones. but narrow ones are more maneuverable. If you want a nimble cruiser board, go with 7in trucks, and 10in for stability. This determines how easy a board turns. Smaller trucks have a tighter turning circle.
RKP trucks are the best for cruising. They are specially designed for turning and stability.(Learn more about trucks here)

Pick longboards that are lighter!

Girls on average are lighter than guys so we need boards that are easier and lighter to turn. Also, it is a factor when you are carrying your board around. My first cruiser board was heavy and it was a nightmare carrying it all day. I made the next board smaller.
You can guess the boards weight by the number of wood plys it has. This also determines how strong it will be. Composite boards are both light and strong.

Easy maintenance

longboard maintenanceIt should be easy enough to maintain any longboard. To avoid having to change out bearings, bushings etc. all the time. We should simply go for quality longboards. Getting a cheap longboard for a girl will do the job, but it may be uncomfortable to ride and the trucks get spoilt after a while. Its worth spending a bit more.

Others tips 

Often you will have to replace bearings some faster ones. We also recommend you check out other girl skaters. (Longboard girls crewIf you are starting out, join a facebook group of people who skate in your area. Its always nice to know people who do.


Picking out your first board can be hard. Don’t sweat it though, just go for any options we’ve given you and follow our guide. You’ll be ok. If I had to start out again I would go for the Atom super cruiser, a board like that would be well placed on any beginners feet.
