The longboard is a variation of the skateboard. Compared to a traditional skateboard the board is more long and heavy, characteristics that provide a greater stabilty at high speed but also a less versatilty in term of evolution. This is the reason why the boards are not generally used for tricks as a traditional skateboard but are used mainly for downhill race.
Also here the riders come down in a leather suit and a helmet with reinforced skateboard shoes under the under the sole to allow the braking.
A variation of the brake is the “Slide”, technique were the rider brings the board in a transversal position beside the way down, bringing literally the board in a “drift” and allowing the control of the speed.
It’s about a vehicle without an engine that use a gravitational force; typically used for downhill race on the road with a well – groomed surface; the name is composed of “street” and “luge” that mix the english term “street” and the French – speaking word “sled” (the luge in fact is the name of the winter olympic discipline of the luge track).
Simple vehicle, formed by a frame that contain the pilot (rider) in a stretch position with the legs on the front, in most cases is a structure self – made and provided by a guide system typically derived from the skateboard. It do not have direct manual drive from a maneuverable steering, but the streetluge is driven following the move of the body.
It do not have a brake mechanical system connected to the vehicle, but the rider use the soles of the shoes making the friction on the street surface.
