Best Answer

Skateboarding used to be called "sidewalk Surfing". it happened when surfers couldnt surf and the put trucks and wheels on the bottom. Soon after "sidewalk surfing" began, people re-dubbed it as "skateboarding" and they changed the board shape and size. Thats why longboards are accepted in the skateboarding community
