In order to buy a longboard, you should spend how much money you have. A beginner who wants to buy their first longboard might ask this question. You can get a longboard for as little as $50, but you’ll likely regret it right away. Also, if you buy a cheap longboard, you might not want to longboard because your riding experience will not be very good.
In terms of price, how much do good longboards cost? Anywhere from $150 to $400. Longboards cost between $150 and $250 for people who aren’t very good at the sport.
How much you spend on your longboard will depend on the brand, the size, and how you ride it. These factors will help you figure out how much you should spend.
How much longboards cost from some of the best brands on the market. They make products that are safe, reliable, and good.
If you don’t see any special prices, the price ranges below are based on regular list prices, not any special deals. There were also longboards that were “normal” size, not mini cruisers or big dancers, which I left out (see later section).
• Arbor longboards: $150 – $210 • Landyachtz longboards: $170 – $250 • Loaded longboards: $290 – $360 (except for the $500 Chubby Unicorn Blood Slayer, which costs $500).
• Globe longboards: $150 – $230 • Sector 9 longboards: $140 – $225
Longboards from Rayne, Omen, DB, Dusters California, and Moonshine are all between $200 and $250. Longboards from Rayne, Omen, DB, Dusters California, and Moonshine are all between $250 and $340, too.
The cost of a longboard is affected by how the deck is built.
They usually cost more to make longboards out of bamboo than they do to make them out of all-wood boards. The bamboo version of a longboard made by a certain brand will cost more than the maple version, even if they are made by the same company. It costs $15 to $20 more for Landyachtz’s Bamboo Chief than for the Maple Chief version, which is about the same price.
Also, the technology and manufacturing process used to build a longboard has a big impact on its price. For example, if the deck core is made of maple or bamboo, it will cost more than one made of bamboo. Loaded’s longboards, for example, use a high-tech blend of bamboo that is vertically laminated and triaxial fiberglass that is bound together with epoxy resin to get a high-performance flex and a super durable composite deck. These decks cost a lot more than normal maple wood decks, but they’re still a good deal.
In this case, it’s easy to compare the prices of the Loaded Tan Tien and Arbor Catalyst, two popular mid-sized longboards that are good for freestyle and freeride, both made out of maple wood. The Loaded costs almost twice as much because of the deck’s high-tech parts.
How much does it cost to build a deck?
It didn’t include long boards that were very small or very big when I said the price ranges for each brand did not include them. Reason: The cost of longboards that are very small and very big fall outside of or above the price range for “regular longboards.”
City cruisers (also called mini-cruisers) with lengths of 32 inches or less usually cost less than a longboard. You may or may not call them “longboards.” The fact that they’re made of less material is probably why they’re more expensive. But most of all, these mini-cruisers are for longboarders who want a cheap and easy way to get around the city.
For the most part, the price of mini cruisers is less than $150. Here are some of the most common:
There are three different types of boats: • Landyachtz Dinghy: $130 • Landyachtz Tugboat: $140 • Globe Blazer: $135-$140
When it comes to big dancing longboards, they usually cost more than normal longboards. For longboarders who enjoy dancing, these decks cost a lot more because they have a lot of space for boardwalking. Again, a lot of material goes into these decks.
People who want to dance on longboards like these usually pay this cost.
It costs $360 for Loaded Bhangra, $200 for Landyachtz Stratus, $200 for Rayne Whip, $260 for Bustin Daensu, and $280 for DB Dancefloor. It costs $425 for Loaded Tarab.
In the $150-$250 range, a good longboard should cost at least that much. You should expect to pay less than that for a mini-cruiser and more for a dancer longboard.
It costs a cost to choose trucks and longboards that are right for you.
A big part of the cost of a longboard is how many parts it comes with, like the trucks and the wheels.
Paris, Bear, Caliber, Randal, and Gullwing are some of the most well-known longboard trucks on the market today. For a set of two longboard trucks from these brands, you can expect to pay between $40 and $60 for each one.
The cost of your longboard will go up if you buy new trucks. They can easily cost between $100 and $150 per truck to make for downhill racing.
A longboard setup with special carving trucks like Carver CX trucks will also cost more. This can add $100 to $130 to the price of your longboard set up.
Wheel choice and the cost of a long board
Wheels that are good on longboards that cost between $150 and $250 are usually found on them. Orangatang, Sector 9, Hawg, Arbor, Venom, Cloud Ride, Seismic are some well-known brands of longboard wheels. How much do longboard wheels usually cost? They usually cost between $35 and $55.
As a general rule, going from longboard wheels that are 60mm to wheels that are 80mm will add to the cost of your longboard. When you switch brands, you may also pay more.
Bearings are another important part of the cost of your setup. While the bearings that come with your longboard may cost as little as $10, high-quality bearings like Bones Reds can cost about twice as much at around $20 for an 8-pack.
Bearings that are super smooth and high-performance can be bought for $60 to $160, which will add to the cost of your longboard. You can buy Swiss Reds or Swiss Ceramics.
If you want to get your longboard, how much should you pay?
You probably shouldn’t pay less than $150 for a normal-sized longboard, which is usually 33 inches to 43 inches long. This will make sure that the board is of good quality and that you have a good, smooth, and pleasant ride.
You don’t usually need to spend more than $250 on your first longboard, unless you already love the sport and want a board that can keep up with you as you improve.
A small cruiser for riding around town might cost you between $130 and $150 for a good board. TKP or RKP trucks and small, high-performance wheels make good mini-cruisers. They are small and easy to move around.
For longboard dancing, you’ll have to spend a lot of money. You can expect to pay from $260 to $400 for a big, high-quality dancer with good carving trucks (e.g. Bear Grizzlies) and good medium-sized wheels (60-70mm).
Finally, if you want to make your longboard better by adding high-end trucks, bigger wheels, and high-performance bearings, you’ll have to add $20 to $100 to the cost of your board. My advice is to ride your longboard for a while before you decide to buy a new one.
