What are the differences between skateboard, cruiser, and surfskate?

The board sports universe is composed of various disciplines with different origins and uses. At Nomadeshop, you can find equipment for skateboarding, cruising, and surfskating.


Skateboarding is one of the oldest urban board sports. Invented in the 1970s, skateboarding has evolved over the years while retaining its identity. Skateboarding can be practiced by both adults and children and is done in skateparks and on the streets.


The Cruiser is a smaller version of the classic skateboard. With its retro and unique style, the cruiser, also known as a miniskate, has attracted many enthusiasts. Once popular, it is now back in trend. Maneuverable and compact, it will be your best ally for getting around the city.


Surfskating is a discipline that closely resembles surfing. Created in the 1990s by two American surfers, surfskating is characterized by a wider board and a front truck with a double pivot, allowing for more aggressive turns without losing speed. Surfskating is mainly practiced on small descents and flat surfaces but can also be used in skatepark bowls.
