2 Wheel Longboard // Could This Work?

I propose 2 styles of longbaord trucks which each contain a single 83mm Abec 11 Centrax wheel (or Sector 9 DoubleWides: https://www.daddiesboardshop.com/sector-9-nine-balls-double-wide-longboard-wheels-55mm)

Build it, try it, do you get hurt?

My dude, we need another upload!

Crunchie says:

Lets just build it and find out

Jem Dav says:

If you add weight in the center plane of the board it may be more stable with that design. Or another option would be to lower the entire deck by leaving only 1-2″ of clearance from the ground (would be possible by recessing the trucks so they stick out the other side of the board)

Brendan Hoppe says:

Look up the hobie Sundance, made in the 70s as a fibre glass deck with 2 wheels. The trucks work way different than any other truck but it’s not a bad idea
