Longboarding has had a large increase in popularity and sales since the pandemic has started with many new people being introduced to the sport.

The Calgary Longboard Club is a Facebook group that holds weekly clinics at Buckmaster Park in Bankview.

The park consists of two pathways, one an easier more mellow run followed by a more technical steep hill oriented for more experienced riders.
