Which is better a longboard or skateboard?

That all depends on personal preference.Longboards, although able to do certain tricks, are mainly used for getting around or "cruising", and are not known for their ability to execute pop-related tricks. Longboards are better as means of transportation. Longboards are more custom, and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and types, depending on your style (Downhill, Slalom, Cruising, Carving, etc.). There are many types of Longboards, including pintails, drop through, and multiple variations of downhill boards.Skateboards are much smaller than longboards, and are usually used for doing tricks. Because of their kicktail-shape, skateboards allow for much easier "pop". Most skateboards aren't designed for rough terrain (gravel, etc.) and are only used for tricks. Some skateboards, however, can be customized into "cruisers" or "Shlongboards". These forms of skateboards are made by either cutting longboard trucks into the tail of a deck, or by simply putting softer, larger wheels and risers on a skateboard deck.There are other forms of longboards, called "Shortboards", which are about the length of a skateboard, but are much wider. These are commonly referred to as cruiser boards. Their length ranges from 24"-35" and they usually have medium-sized longboard wheels/trucks.The best advice is to go out and skate. See which board suits your style.
