This looks like just what I need for safer stops. Let us know how well this works if you get a chance to try one soon.

You inspired me to try longboarding. I am 58 years old and just bought a Never Summer, Swift longboard ("the luxury cruise liner of longboards," sayeth Dogfunk). It is really smooth and the slope of the driveway and roads near here are just fine for cruising. Northeast Iowa (Dubuque) is not as flat as you might think. I definitely need some protective gear though. Going fast and smooth down hill seems to be my new obsession. It brings back memories of insane downhill speed on my old skateboard from ~1964, but that one had impossibly hard wheels that skidded on every little stone on the street -- ouch! The Swift longboard is so smooth and even runs over acorns on the driveway. Thanks HinesSight!
