ALPHA LONGBOARDS - LOCAL LEGENDS




As the snow begins to fall and temperatures in the north drop way below freezing, we thought it only fitting and necessary to add a little African sunshine in our lives with these seriously cool longboards. Alpha Longboards was started by Kent Lingeveldt, out of a need for longboards in Cape Town. Why -Alpha- ? Because they believe that with the purchase of an Alpha Longboard comes the beginning of a culmination of a lifelong dream for some, and the re-awakening of a dream for others. Each board is handcrafted in the Alpha workshop by Kent who is an avid longboarder. Alpha was started as a custom board shaping company, but has now developed a standard catalogue range that is constantly growing. They maintain that they sell a lifestyle, not a product. Their most recent creations entitled ‘Local Legends’ is a series of custom stencil artwork by in-house artist Kenan Petersen. First in this beautiful range is the Nelson Mandela board and retails at about $250 each. Personally I just want to hang one on my wall.

Longboarding is a sports activity that's developing with attractiveness. This aboard accustomed to longboard is a stylistic and sensible melding with the surf and skate aboard. Formulated for the Western world Coastline in excess of 50 years ago, longboarding has been around for quite a while.

Always Warm-Up becomes more important if the skate park is at least a 30 minute ride from your place. Jumping on the skateboard right away while trying to show your best tricks can lead you to a pretty ugly wipe-out. Instead, stretch your legs out a little and do whatever you think is best for you to loosen-up and relax.

Longboard riding is the best way to judge a girl’s personality and sports or athletic capabilities. Because of better stability, longboards for girls are much better than skateboards for girls. The first step anyone can take is to find longboards that might be suitable for expressing a girl’s preference and personality.

Longboarding is a relaxed way to train your skills. What you do need is a board with a little tails for freeride tricks. Well on your longboard learn carving and pumps can also deal with snowboarding. (surfing). So a little flex in your board is also nice.

I want to learn how to do one or the other. I don't live near a local skate board shop or skate board park either. I live in an apartment area with a fair amount of ledges and steep roads and straight roads though. How much should a longboard cost? How much should a skate board cost? Is it necessary to buy the helmet and pads to wear really? Which one is easier, or which one is more worth it. Is it ok if I buy a board online?
