Black Diamond Sports Longboard Skateboard Decks
At Black Diamond Sports we shape and design some of our own mini cruiser boards. These mini cruisers are modeled after the once great Ladera Purple Heat mini cruiser. The have a large tail making it easy to do ollies and tricks, but can come stocked with longboard trucks and wheels for a more stable, cruising ride. A mini cruiser is a hybrid board. It fits snugly between a skateboard and a longboard giving you the best opportunity to learn and a perfect to it all board. Mini cruisers are a great begginer boards for younger kids or first time riders as it lets them get comfortable before branching out into full on longboarding or skateboarding. The BDS mini cruisers have a large tail with lots of pop which is great for ollies, but they also have a large nose for nollies or other skateboard style tricks. Most mini cruisers do not have a tail optimized for tricks and even more of them have no nose at all.
BDS Cruisers work best with Standard King Pin 149mm Independent Trucks or Reverse King Pin 150mm Paris Longboard Trucks. The deck has enough clearance to fit at 63mm wheel. Pretty large for a deck of its stature. The BDS Black Diamonds 63mm Longboard Wheels would be a great option for this board. For the best oportunity and the smoothest ride a set of Bones Swiss bearings would be ideal. These bearings give you a fast spin and a long lasting ride. That would be the optimal set up for a board like this. With a set up like the one mentioned above you would be prime for all styles of riding give you an optimized do everything board. The perfect begginer board is a BDS Mini Cruiser boards.
