Boarding to college...

Post by SomeNewbGuy » Tue Sep 17, 2013 8:25 am

I was thinking of getting a skateboard of some sort to go to and from college, but i realized that the paths are a bit too rough for skateboard wheels, so then my mind went back to mountain boards.

Could a mountain board be decent for traveling to and from college with? I realize that it would be better with some roadies on it, but would just a regular mountain board be good enough?

TLDR; Should i get a board to go to college, would also be used for other stuff.

Well i have but they're a bit too big for me (i think), that and I've also been wanting to get a board for a while anyways...

I guess i could have worded the question differently... Wheres the edit button?

If a longboard is too big, a mountainboard will be worse. Also mountainboards are heavy and can get flats. I don't think I'd want to commute with one.

I used to skateboard to college, you could ride a mountainboard but as Mikael said not ideal for several reasons.
