Riding through Krakow on a Longboard
Krakow has a population of 800 000 people, which means that sometimes it is really hard to ride through the city on the peak hours. But most of the day it is fine. Another issue is, that almost all the roads and squares in the old town are covered with bricks. This makes it really hard to ride there, but outside of the centre the ground is smooth and comfortable.
Best spots in Krakow for Longboard Dancing
Here in Krakow we have several spots that you can skate. My favourite spot is near the stadium of the local soccer team “Wisla Krakow”. The spot is really nice, has a really long road with no cars and smooth asphalt. Here are other awesome longboard spots:
Here’s a list with a few good spots:
If you are not a freestyle longboarder, you will also find some beautiful spots for cruising. Especially enjoyable are these three, in my opinion:
Longboard dancing community in Krakow is strong and growing. We have special meetings called “Fat Thursdays” when we all meet up for riding, talking and just enjoying ourselves. Everyone in here is chill and nice. It makes no difference if you are a pro or just a beginner. Even if you do not own a board just come with no fear and say Hi!
Getting proper gear and equipment in Krakow
In Krakow the equipment for skateboarding is available in several shops, but with longboard equipment is not that easy. There is one good longboardshop where you can get any equipment, decks, trucks, wheels etc. The shop is called BC24 and is located in district of Krakow called ,,Kazimierz”. People who work there are super chill and will happily advice you to choose the best stuff for you.
