Longboard gear for fall

Longboarding is a great way to cruise around town and take in all the colors of the season. With winter around the corner, riders want to maximize their time on the board and get as much ride time in as possible. Fall also means it’s time to head back to school for some, and longboarding is also a great way to get around campus. But before you hop on your board and cruise off into the sunset, check out some of the seasons must have gear.

  • Don’t forget your helmet – especially if your campus has a lot of hills. You never know what’s going to snag a wheel, so it’s better to be safe than end up with a head injury. You don’t want to waste that tuition money when you could easily prevent a blow to the head with a helmet like the Bern Macon.
  • You’ll definitely need a hat for the colder days and nights. While a snap back may be your style, check out some beanies that will keep you warm on your board. You’ll want a decent sweatshirt too, or a windbreaker to cut the breeze.
  • Although the sun may not be hot, it’s still shining so don’t forget your shades. No matter how seasoned of a longboarder you are, if you can’t see where you’re going, you’re bound to have a bumpy ride.
  • If you’re in the market for a new board, check out the fall inspired longboards at Eternal. Getting it at the end of the season will give you time to break it in so you can hit the ground running when spring comes around.

So before you head out this fall, grab some of the newest gear and enjoy the ride.
