About Us


Aims and Objectives:

  1. Provide the boards and the experience to teach people to skate for the first time.
  2. Provide a group that will make experienced skaters feel at home and keep up doing what they love.
  3. Keep up the environment of the society as it was when we found it. A bridge between subjects and year groups for everyone to get involved.

Welcome to Longboard Society! If you have never stepped on a longboard before or have skated your whole life, no matter, this is the place for you. We have two main aims; to meet new people to skate with and to help teach people the beautiful sport. We are not a professional bunch, we just love going skating and want as many people as possible to join us and to learn the trade.

What is Longboarding?

Longboarding is often referred to as surfing on land because the feeling and the skills acquired are so similar. Longboards are typically longer and wider than normal skateboards and are designed more for carving, sliding and racing rather than half pipes and bowls. Longboarding is easy to pick up and you can feel yourself improving really quickly each time you go out for a skate. We run two sessions per week, one for beginners and a more advanced session for anyone else. We have enough boards to supply the people on the sessions so don't worry if you don't have a board. We head out in the evenings around 9pm to avoid traffic. We normally skate for a couple of hours and then follow it up with a few drinks in town, it's always a cracking night.

Exeter is one of the best towns in the country for longboarding so if you don’t know it you’re in for a treat! If you already do, join us and we can revel at the beauty of Exeter’s roads like Black Magic and the mystical G-Spot. As a collective we have the nightlife of the city as mapped out as the roads so if you want to find nights with more to offer then your average TP Wednesday this is the place to be.

What you get for signing up...

Learn the roads of the city with regular skate sessions lead by experienced skaters.

Access to boards and safety gear at anytime of day.

Socials with a creative spin, we always try to innovate and improve upon the ideas that you've seen before.

And you get to know the growing skating community of Exeter.
