A Bamboo Longboard has more flex and durability than a regular longboard for that laid back cushioned ride. Be more cushioned with the board will cause less slippage and more grip between the board and the rider. It is also ideal for downhill riding. The longboard is either made completely out of bamboo or a mix with maple or other wood. Usually these boards are recommended for persons under 200 lbs, however there are also some up to 300 lbs. Pick your favorite longboard deck.
