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.

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

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

  • Signed up for a Premium membership over at Endomondo where they have a great longboard community. Activity is called "skateboarding" but seems to be 100% longboarders. Keep your free Strava membership however because Endomondo does not offer the privacy feature that blocks your start/finish location nor the route editing feature that would allow you to erased a few blocks. Also, if you forget to stop recording your workout as you drive your car 10 miles before realizing you are still recording you can come back to Strava and use their editing feature to actually remove the car ride piece. Upload workout to Strava, edit it, export it as a file, then upload to Endomondo. Simple. Other than these two missing features Endo is super. Skate ON!

  • +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.

  • I think strava hates skateboarders. I mean really, they even list "rollerskiing" and in-line skating but they refuse to put longboarding or skateboarding on the list..

  • I can't understand the logic of not having skateboading / longboarding on Strava...    I mean come on you have Yoga,   which it great but you don't move, it's not like you can give Kudos for a 5 mile Yoga session....

  • It's getting beyond ridiculous to not have longboard / skateboard / e-board as options.

    Based on the comment from Jeremy at Strava Support: "Skateboarding will not be added anytime in the near future. Apologies if that's frustrating. I know you all throw some skin on the line!" it's as if Strava have somehow convinced themselves that the frequency and level of injuries/deaths on skateboards & longboards is greater than bikes, inline skates and yoga... And they don't want any more legal cases on their hands.

    I'll click "I ACCEPT" on a disclaimer.

    Their logic is pretty weak. Stair-Stepper? Stand Up Paddling? YOGA!!!? Someone should start a new thread to add an activity type called "Sleep".

    Low impact "sports" get the nod, probably added those for their tech-savvy Grandparents.

  • 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).

  • +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.
