Back end kicks up unlike a lot of the cheaper longboards. Bought this for my husband who's 6'3 and 240 lbs. he loves it. Says it rides smooth & the quality is a ton better than the ones we looked at Big Five for the same price.

I love it! By:
I’ve been DYING to get a longboard. I paid a little over $30 for this one because it was used, but it still rides like new! 100% would recommend!
First ever longboard By:
I love it. I've never had a longboard and chose this one to learn on. Its pretty good except we had to loosen the wheels because it was too stiff and was too difficult to turn. And it squeaks now but my brother, who is more experienced with longboards, says its fine and you usually have to wax the bearings anyway and that loosening the wheels is based on preference so its all good. Overall I like it a lot.

Very nice cruiser board By:
This is a very good board. The deck itself is high quality and i like the graphic.At first the board was stiff and slow. I grabbed a socket wrench 14mm and loosened up the trucks and now it steers much better. But it was slow.THen I grabbed the 13mm socket wrench and loosened all 4 wheels by a full 50% turn. Then I saw that the wheels spinned for alot longer when the board is upside down.Then i got back on the board and the speed was significantly faster. I recommend others to do the same, you have to play with the tightness and do so only a half-turn at a time and then ride the board and see how it reacts.I also can feel that the board is "breaking in" as I ride it more and more and every time I get on it I feel that the speed has increased and the turning radius as well. Keep in mind if you loosen up the trucks too much that it will be easier to steer but you will lose speed. So you want the trucks as tight as possible while still allowing you to steer.Maybe loosen the trucks only 25% of a turn at a time and then get on the board and ride it. This is the important test, not just turning the board upside down and spinning the wheels. The REAL test is to ride the actual board. Its kind of like tuning a guitar or adjusting the action on a guitar neck. You may buy a new electric guitar and think the guitar sucks until it has been properly adjusted and tuned. And it is the same with a longboard.More advice: Give it at least a full 7 days of skating daily before you make a final conclusion about the board. Let the board "break-in" before you make your final judgement. Especially if this is your first longboard.Also dont upgrade the bearings or trucks or wheels right away. Skate on it for a month before you do any upgrades. This way you will develop a baseline and then you can see if the new bearings or wheels you buy are actually an improvement over the stock configuration (In many cases the stock parts are good enough for your first 3 months of learning).You are not Tony hawk and probably the upgrades are wasted on a new rider who barely has any skills developed. I mean if you stink as a new rider you are not going to go much faster even with expensive upgrades so spend more time skating and less time buying upgrades.

Hey, a longboard! By:
It's a longboard alright. This particular one is a sizable unit, larger than my roommate's board from Volador by a bit, but it makes for a very comfy riding experience. I've successfully ridden from my humble college dorm to Del Taco and back, and it has proved it's usefulness. That being said, my only two complaints are that the box was beat to absolute heck and had absolutely no padding, and that the warning sticker is A++ garbage tier, leaving some nice residue. Aside from that, pretty good value for a longboard!
Five Stars By:
Thank you.
Great ride! By:
Good board for the price, no complaints.
I like it, It's good for beginner By:
So far I like it. I never ride skating before and I practiced myself and I could cruising in one day with this board. It's long board and pretty stable so it's easy to cruising around. I like the looks of it as well. Thinking about to get shorter/smaller board now. It's just easier to carry around. This is great board for a beginner and cruising around :)
A fantastic board for a good price By:
This is a legit, well-made board for a great price. Don't pass it up.
Good deal By:
My son picked this out and really likes it- exactly as described and the picture

Rides like a dream By:
My son loves this board. My youngest wanted one as well, but they were no longer in stock. We just got our street paved and it's like riding on butter. Amazon even shipped it to Maine while were on vacation to the hotel. It was in a HUGE box, but arrived safe and sound. A wonderful price for the quality.
Great board By:
This was my first longboard and I couldn't be happier. I was able to hop right on and ride. I tightened up the trucks a bit for a firmer readings and was good to go. I was able to house right over neighborhood sidewalks with normal cracks and uneven slabs. Build quality of the deck, trucks and wheels seem good and the price was unbeatable

Bought this for my son. He LOVES it. Perfect long boarding starter board. By:
Bought this as a first (introductory board) for my son who wanted to skate but was still healing from a broken ankle from the previous year. Perfect long board due to the wood being pliable and he could feel the road better and maneuver the board easily. He loved the artwork on it as well. Now, it is over a year later and he has been quite active using it and it STILL looks new and is Still his favorite long board. All he needed were new wheels and grip tape. Thank you for making a wonderful memorable board.
