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.

  • "Skateboarding" should definitely be an activity. Really odd that it isn't. So many people rid it for sport, leisure and for transport in their day to day.

  • The same on WhatsApp. No emoticon of skateboard until now! Prejudice.

  • I know this has been said before.....

    Why not an activity simply called "Skate"? This one simple word would cover inline skates, quad skates, ice skates, skateboards, longboards, ski skates, speed skates, heelys, and ripstiks.

    This just seems stubborn to me. I have 3100 miles of skating on quads, inline skates, and longboards this year and I can't choose a category called SKATE to cover all of it.

    The new year is upon us and my resolution is to find a place that better suits my activities than Strava. Lemme know if you come to your senses anytime soon.

  • I started a Premier (paid) account at Endomondo to start 2018. They do have "Skateboarding" there but it does NOT have 100% functionality like cycling, running, even roller skating. For instance, you can't post a Skateboarding Route. Or look for one obviously. Almost every other sport allows the creation of routes at Endomondo.

    There are things I like about Strava and Endomondo so I will likely keep both for a while, and i found a way to synch them automatically through tapiriik.com which worked fairly well.

    So my new messages to Strava:

    1. There are more kind of skates in this world than inline skates.

    2. Longboard enthusiasts are so desperate for a place to be that they will settle for "Skateboarding" as a category.

    3. If Strava had a "Skateboarding" category or just "Skate", I likely would not have gone looking for another sports tracker and would be likely to have purchased a membership to show good faith and appreciation. Instead, Endomondo, even though not perfect, got my pennies.

    Cheers!

  • For you Longboarders/Skateboarders out there! I switched to Endomondo for a  month now and like it so much better than Strava. Endo has a "Skateboard" category that is full on longboarders. Endo also has lots of fun challenges for skateboarders as well. Within one month I accumulated 20 friends who ALL SKATE! Push, Pump, and Paddle folks are well represented over there as well.

    I assume that I am the last longboarder here on Strava but just in case, check out Endomondo.com first.

    Cheers.

  • 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!

  • Good to see the team is listening to their users! But at least we have different categories for walks, runs and hikes!
