Bigfish V-Lam Longboard Review
Bigfish V-Lam Longboard Review - Pintails as a breed of longboard suffer from some inherent problems, wheelbite being the most severe but others including useless tails, thin noses, no room for your feet and a general feeling that you are riding a finely shaped 2x4. The Bigfish however as pintails go is in a class of very select pintails, those that were actually designed by a skater not a designer.

Junior Dancer Longboard Review (Roggs Customs Skateboards)
Junior Dancer Longboard Review (Roggs Customs Skateboards) - Almost every board company starts out the same. A rough board concept in a garage, or backyard shop, tooled with what is available then ridden. A rough board comes together, more and more are made and eventually the company is established and finish and form comes together. This story is pretty much universal to the point that the story is getting to the point of cliché'.

Vanguard Longboard Review
Vanguard Longboard Review - The first thing that will jump out at you is the hyper aggressive arch on the spine of this board, convex camber accents the gently concaved rails, giving the deck the appearance of a board ready to spring. The wheels, sit on trucks mounted at the very edged of the decks nose and tail, aggressive swept in rails meet the mounting points of the nose and tail, bringing to mind images of a drag pacer with its paws down to the ground gripping the pavement.
Norad Longboard Review
Norad Longboard review - read about the Norad longboard, from Neversummer Industries. This board on first appearance is your typical campus cruiser carving board.

Arbor Bug Longboard Review
The Arbor Bug is a shorter longboard (36") specially designed by Arbor for female riders. The smaller size is more manageable, and the shape makes a great transition between regular skateboarding and longboarding. What we found, however, is that the Arbor Bug isn't just fun for girls - anyone will enjoy the maneuverability and style of this board. Tester Ian Taylor took the Bug and hit the streets for a couple of weeks. The following is Ian's reaction to the Arbor Bug.

Arbor Rail Cruiser Longboard Review
The Arbor Rail longboard - I’d like to summarize what you are about to read in two words: fast and fun. The Arbor Rail longboard is on my list of the best longboards of all time.

Arbor Hybrid Longboard Review
The Arbor Hybrid longboard is built to give wide support and smooth ride for poolwork, cruising and even more technical tricks. The Arbor Hybrid longboard is shorter than the other Arbor cruiser boards, enabling you to cut and carve almost anything. Use Arbor's Koa wood finished stiff deck for that shape, and add Randal trucks and custom Kryptonics wheels, and you get a nice ride. However, being in the middle makes the Hybrid an oddly specialized longboard - read the review for more.

The Arbor Pin longboard's deck is made with true Hawaiian Koa wood to add strength and beauty, and to reach back to the longboard's hawaiian roots in surfing.

Arbor Pocket Rocket Review
The Arbor Pocket Rocket has all of the features of an Arbor longboard, but is built to regular skateboard scale. The result is crazy little skate that rides super smooth, carves like no other, and makes hardly any sound. Tricks on the Arbor Pocket Rocket are a little difficult, but can be done. In short, the Arbor Pocket Rocket is a great hybrid mix between a longboard and a short skateboard. Read the review for more details.

Bustin Boards are custom designed cruiser skateboards, perfect for anyone who enjoys the pure feel of carving, or who wants to cruise around in style.
