To the reviewer above, I would like so say that there is no misrepresentation here. The 42" board comes with Abec 3 bearings, and the 44" board comes with Abec 5 bearings. Regardless, if you do some research you will find that abec ratings have little to do with the actual speed of the bearing. I have used abec 3's that were at least twice as fast as other abec 7 bearing that I have tried. I saw this board at Costco today for $69.99! An awesome deal and I am thinking of going back to pick one up. It looks to be very well made and the trucks and wheels seem decent. I have been reading some reviews on it and it does sound like a good board from a reputable company. I don't think you can go wrong at this price!
We're very thrilled with this purchase. My brother (a lifelong surfer) says that this is a top product and was blown away when I told him the price! We had to tighten up the trucks a little, but adjustments always have to be made. The wheels are great quality too. Don't hesitate if you're in the market for a great skateboard! You will love it!

This board rides great. It corners well and is built well. However, The description says that the bearings are abec 5 while in fact they are abec 3 which explains why the board is not as fast as i expected. I bought some bones reds bearings to replace them and this board will be just what I was looking for. I am a little mad about the information..... but just keep in mind that you'll probably want to spend the extra ten bucks to upgrade the bearings.
