Add an Activity Type for Longboard Skateboarding

My buddy does  20+ mile runs on his longboard skateboard at 15+ mph, and there is a big scene doing descents.  It seems like a good new sport for Strava.

  • I have also requested this. Me and my Lexington, KY, Strava buddies do longboard sessions after our road and MTB rides!

  • Definitely would like skateboarding added as an activity.  Like to chart my morning 5 miler and my lunchtime "urban assault" runs. ;-)

  • Definitly Strava needs longboard skateboarding! It would be great, if I could add my longboardruns to my MTB runs :)

  • +1 I would pay for premium if skateboarding was added. All the other longboard apps lack the auto-pause feature and their websites are nowhere near as polished as Strava's.

  • Please add this activity type! Additionally it would be nice to be able to specify which of my skateboards I were using ( like I do for bikes).

  • With so many _____board options in the activity type, it was hard to believe skateboard/longboarding was missing...please add it!

  • +1...Please add longboarding as an activity. My training rides are 20 to 50 miles. 10 miles is a "walk in the park" so to speak. My Longboard setup costs $700US. Add the GPS and tack on another $130. Longboards are not a toy but a worthy sport vehicle for Strava. I have been using "Workout" as my activity on Strava but always use the word "Longboard" in the description so it will pop up using keywords. This is also how I find other longboard sessions on Strava with keywords and state names.

     

    I will change my profile picture when "Longboarding" gets added. Cheers!

  • A year passed and still no skateboarding. Adding one line to database will make many users happy. It is not acceptable to ignore your users like that. No wonder more and more of my friends switching away from Strave to other services like Runkeeper, etc.

  • C"MON STRAVA!  It seems like it would be really easy to do, I mean you have ebike as an activity???CMON MAN!  I know few hundred people that would like to track their skateboarding activity on STRAVA.   Endomondo has it, Map My Run/Ride has it.  Get with the program STRAVA!

  • OK, I am tired of waiting. Could anybody recommend alternative tracker supporting this. I guess Strava needs to see their users leaving to competitors to reconsider effort required to add 1 line to list of activities in the database.

  • I have also requested this. Please add skateboarding as an activity. It doesn't make sense not to have it. Thanks.
