The official website for these crazy boards asks "What happens when you combine rocket science and longboards?" The answer is Tarantula Trucks.
These spider-like boards (hence "Tarantula" Trucks) are a evolved version of a longboard. Since the board is lower to the ground, it makes it much easier for beginners to learn; since the trucks are so wide apart, the board is more stable and can carve better than a normal board. On top of this, the Tarantula Trucks can reach higher speeds without getting "speed wobblies."
Check out the Tarantula Trucks website for more details about these new badass longboards.
