Foot bags (commonly known as hackey sacks) are either stitched or croqeted and filled with sand or beads. Bags filled with sand are heavier and easier to "stall" than croqueted ones. Croqueted sacks are too light but bounce high with less kick. Sand bags lose their sand over time and "become flat" while ones filled with beads don't.

Before skateboarding was popular, people made boards from roller-skate wheels and peices of wood. Skateboards eventually evolved and incorporated bigger wheels while adopting a surf board shape to them. These manufactured boards looked closer to the Long boards and cruisers we have today. Skateboards were again adapted by shrinking their wheel size, ditching the surf board look, and adding grip tape. Longboards today have a longer wheelbase than skateboards, have bigger and softer wheels, and are almost doppelgangers to the Old School Boards while Skateboards took on a concaved deck to perform harder tricks.
