Long boarding is one of the best rides you could experience these days. And trust me if you have not travelled to your favourite places in a Longboard you have never really tasted what freedom actually feels like.
You have to understand that Longboarding is just not about riding a skateboard to places and hitting the tracks for thrill. This might be very intriguing but actually long boarding is not just a sport loves by young generation but also truly enjoyed by matured and aged people too.
Longboards have changed the culture of gender and age segregation by creating a united sense of attachment between long boarders which is more of a contemporary culture.
So I am going to let you experience the world of longboard and the benefits it is providing to its loyal riders and Why should you longboard? Let’s begin:
Many people are confused between the terms liberty and freedom so let me clear this out for you, freedom is actually getting the right to speak, think and express according to his own will but liberty is having your life your way according to your interests and principles and not following any social, regional or cultural barrier.
Longboards are successful in providing both liberty and freedom, and all the riders know this because they know the significance of this point of time in their life which involves all the decision makings.
Longboards are also providing freedom to its rider by giving the rights to transport anywhere and everywhere as they please.
We all know this that playing with gravity is something we can’t conquer, but long boarding allows you to master even that too. Longboards helps in increasing the balance and coordination of body by hand eye coordination, somatosensory system, vestibular system and also enhances the musculoskeletal system.
You might need this type of balance someday to save your life from any accident or so, and if not so also it is a good indicator of healthy body and lifestyle.
Lower body strength
Long boarding enhances the muscles and the structure of body but mostly it works best for the lower body by increasing the strengthening durability of lower body. By having a strong Lower body you can consider yourself a strong person. And in Lehmanlanguage you are able to make higher jumps, run faster than before and gain some muscles easily and avoid injuries etc.
So due to an increase in the hand eye coordination and good balance skills, rider gets awareness too. A long boarder with these skills is said to be more aware of the surroundings and little little things happening around him.
Awareness helps in increasing the efficiency of movements and understanding your own body in a much better way and utilising it in your daily life also.
Long boarding works as the perfect mix of cardio exercises for the rider in order to improve stamina, capacity of lung and the health of body.
Daily cardio exercises also help you in keeping your body fit and in shapes and also enhance flexibility along with motions and movements. So guys longboards are good way to do your cardio and action exercises at the same time.
Ohhh.. You might be shocked to see this one on the list but yes guys its true longboard gives the value added service of a good sex appeal.
You guys might have also noticed that the long boarders have a better personality and a sexy body. So I think this reason might attract you to long boarding.
Saves time and money
Nobody wants to get stuck on the roads in the traffic and this sight is more frequent in metropolitan areas. So don’t get into this traffic thing and get boarded on the longboard and make your ride timesaver and reasonable.
Longboards help the riders to avoid the long traffic queues and reach their destinations as fast as possible. And on the other hand if we talk about saving money with this mode of transport than let me tell you you can save approx 1800-2000 dollars by stoping travelling from your personal cars and discarding extra costs like fuel, maintenance charges and other costs.
As the result of this switching of transportation modes you might be able to save some money.
Long boarding is one of the sports activities offering a share to environment welfare too.
Long boarding decreases driving of vehicles and hence the amount of emission of any hazardous gases in the nature is also decreased due to that.
