Specific Purpose: At the end of my speech the audience will be able to name 3 reasons why a longboard is the best board for beginners.
I. Have you ever noticed how cool skateboarding always looked? And deep down wished you could at least ride a skateboard without breaking yourself. II. I’m here to tell you about a great solution.

A longboard is much safer than a skateboard because of its design. B. Source of Transportation C. Stress reliever, once it becomes an enjoyable hobby of inspiration.
I. Why is a longboard so much safer than a skateboard? A. The way a longboard is built and designed 1. Longer, wider base making it more stable, safer, and comfortable B. Much heavier than a skateboard 1. Gives it a fluid motion by giving more momentum 2. Rolls farther with a single push 3. Ability to perform big turns, and short-quick carves C. Bigger wheels 1. Much smoother ride over rough areas 2. Absorbs impact from rocks and other junk 3. Won’t biff it on huge cracks in concrete II. Great Source of Transportation compared to a Skateboard A. Skateboards weren’t designed for efficient transportation 1. Designed for crazy tricks 2. Advanced, not for beginners B. Longboards designed for transportation 1. They have speed- the wheels 2.
