In downhill longboarding, speed is the name of the game. Some riders reach speeds exceeding 50 miles per hour while trying to master the concept to stand on their longboard and skate down an open road.
The standup downhill longboarding is spreading widely in the last years and is becoming more and more popular.
Here in Washington, YouTube channels created by local skaters like SK8 Stevens are helping to promote the sport. Also, small independent companies like Subsonic Skateboards has become a legendary brand in the skate community by sponsoring local events and riders.
