Skateboard and Longboards
Over the past few years, Longboards have not just penetrated Seoul’s cultural consciousness but also has become a stylishly, trending "subculture" many aspire to be a part of. At any of the Hangang parks, you will find groups of young individuals elegantly gliding by and stopping at open spaces to perform a few stunts, all the while soaking in some light summer breezes. They dress casually with a little bit of hip -hop influence (which has made the culture more attractive for Korea’s youth). The longboard is also a perfect, more portable alternative to bicycles. Probably because of how personal these longboards can become, there aren’t a lot of places in Seoul where you can "rent" and try one of them out. Fortunately, near exit 1 of Ttukseom Hangang Park you will spot EURO Wheel. It’s a rental shop that offers a wide array of items including striders, electric scooters and most importantly, skateboards and longboards. Skateboards and cruisers will cost 5,000 won by the hour while longboards will be 10,000 won by the hour. Helmets will cost an extra 2,000 won. Head over to Ttukseom Hangang Park and join the longboard movement!
