Today, longboards come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and materials to help improve and tailor fit your riding experience. A common type of longboard is the Drop Down or Drop Deck Platform longboard. These boards have a dropped platform that lowers your center of gravity to improve stability at any speed and are mainly intended for downhill and freeriding. This dropped platform also allows riders to initiate slides with greater ease because they are lower to the ground. Because of the enhanced stability, Drop Down Longboards are great for beginners who are still trying to improve their balance.
