Recommended mountain skateboard?


Q. I’d like to buy a mountain skateboard. What kind of board would you recommend for me?
– Curious Kenneth, Barceloneta, Puerto Rico

A. Skateboarding down mountain trails? Love it. Get an entry-level board from MBS Mountainboards ( They’ve been dedicated to the sport for a long time and make good boards. I did a quick check online and you can still get the basic MBS Atom 80 Mountainboard for $130, which should be a great board to learn on. You’ll pay about $30 more for the Atom 80x (comes with a hand-held V-brake), which will be very handy for running the steep stuff!
