Longboards can be made from a range of different materials and they each offer different benefits. The three most common materials are maple, bamboo and carbon fiber. Maple is popular as it is exceptionally durable, so your board will last for many years without deteriorating. Bamboo is also very popular, as it is very lightweight and has an appealing aesthetic, whilst still being durable and slightly flexible. If you will be carrying your board a lot, then this would be a good choice. Finally, carbon fiber is most commonly used by professional longboarders. These boards are more expensive but they are lightweight thanks to the foam interior. They are also great for maneuvering tight turns.
