I don't know as lot about longboards or skateboards, but this seems solid and the wood is pretty to look at. It's pretty big as well. A good starter longboard.
We bought this for our sons 5th birthday present. He loves it! He has so much fun on it. He is highly coordinatd and was a bit frustrated with it at first, but after 4 months of riding it he's a pro. He always want to go out skateboarding and has really got the hang of it. It was a bit stiff in the beginning, but has loosened up with use. His older sisters have even asked if they can get one. Sisters are 8 and 10. Oh, it also if great construction and quality. Actually better barrings than the "Penny" stake board.
