Trickboards are smaller longboards that are made for doing simple tricks. These boards are not for long distance riding or for downhill. the tail at the end of the board allows the rider to flip the board and stop easier. The trucks on these boards tend to be loosend so the board gets more speed to set up for tricks. These boards can also be very dangerous because of the small size. The small size of the board makes it harder to have balance when your pushing, so you could easily twist your ankle if your not careful.
