Longboards were invented back in the 50s by surfers in Hawaii to feel the surfing vibe in the flat surface when the ocean waves were not cooperating. That invention soon created a huge fanbase and made it one of the most loved sports around the world.
Soon many people started experimenting with it to make it look cooler and rider-friendly. Longboards are very long in size and that’s why you can’t carry it along with you everywhere. That’s when mini longboards or Eggboard was invented.
Today I am going to review a tiny but cute longboard (Eggboard) and discuss briefly how it performs. I will also try to make your decision easier for you on whether you should buy it or not.

About The Brand
The founder of Eggboards, Paolo, invented it for a solution to a personal problem. That is, he couldn’t carry his longboard with him on the flight. That made him think, what if he could make a longboard that is so tiny in size as to carry but performs totally like a longboard.
That thinking later led to the invention of Eggboards or Mini Longboards using the deck of a skateboard and the trucks and wheels of a longboard. Soon his invention became very popular and many people loved his idea.
Now if you want my suggestion on whether to buy this mini longboard or not, then I will tell you to go for it. The reason behind it is, it is very fast in speed and you can carry it with you easily which is more than appealing. It is easy to control. Plus, it’s a very fun looking piece of equipment.
