A pintail longboard is defined by having a pointed nose and tail. This type of longboard is directional, meaning it’s only meant to go in one direction: forward. Typically designed with top mount trucks, this deck style offers great stability, making it great for cruising and carving. The pintail design is a very traditional skateboard design, meaning there are tons of options if you’re looking to find one.
When it comes to finding the best pintail longboard, after considering length and quality, all you need to worry about is finding a graphic you love. If you’re looking for a standard size longboard, you’ll want something between 33”-38”. If you want your longboard to last a long time, quality is extremely important. While you can find cheap boards online, they tend to wear out very quickly.
