Bought this for a younger child (7) and he LOVES it. His older brother was a tad jealous, but he got over it when his arrived for his birthday! Colors were outrageous, and he was thrilled. The wheels felt stiff and didn't roll immediately, which was disheartening, until he got on it and zipped down the hill. Loosened right up and flew. Shockingly good for a small amount of money.
Nice board love it. Great quality. Rides very smooth wish i could have more time to ride. I love going to the gas station with because there are a lot of hills. The value of the board is amazing. Turns very smooth and good. Three good pushes and your off!
I bought this board for my son who just started long boarding, but is advancing quickly. So I didn't want to buy a lame board and have to buy another one in short time period. I read the reviews of the board on Ebay and Long Board sites. The price on Ebay was double what I would have paid. Score one for me that I checked Overstock. My son loves the board. Rides smoothly and you don't have to keep pushing. Has great wheels and wood quality as well. Very happy customer!
I fell in love with this board as soon as i unboxed it. It is my first long board and I am not disappointed at all. Its cruzes very smoth and on a fresh road its like skating on air. I am happy with this longboard and I would like to thank over stock.com.
I bought this for my Granddaughter for one of her Christmas presents. She said she absolutely LOVES it. She loves the size and says it has a very smooth ride. Thank you for having the one she wanted. If your kids or Grandkids wants a new board, this is the one to get!!
I bought this board back in March and i had no expirence with riding longboards. Initially, i had bought the board as a off season conditioning/practice tool for snowboarding. Little did i know i'd come to love longboarding all on its own!!! Its great if you are a beginner because you wont go as fast as you could go if you had a more advanced pair of wheels. The deck is provides good [nearly] slip proof footing because of the urethane. However, i find it slightly harder to change my footing, sliding my foot from facing forward to being on an angle and vice versa. Now that i've had a few months of expirence under my belt I've deduced that a longboard with a kicktail is more suitable for me since I am used to the kicktails on a standard skateboard. I do recommend you try just a regular longboard such as this one before trying others if you've haven't had ANY expirence!
Overall, i do believe this board was a great learning longboard! It's durable and a decent size for beginners. Cruising on a hot summer day or a cool summer evening makes it all the more attractive of a past-time!!! Its a great way to relax and destress!!!
I bought this Atom Drop-Longboad on June 5, and i received it within 5 bus-day. This is an awesome long board that you can't expect more from it. I don't know how good is the quality of some $150- $220 long board from other company, but this one is perfect-wonderful board. It does not make noise when you ride at night, it does make noise a little but will not wake your neighbor at all. Believe me, every one of you should buy this board, if you want one.
It is beautiful design and graphic, i think, my 13 yrs. niece ride it every day, also my 8 yrs. nephew , and my other 9 yrs. niece love it as well.
I read one review before i wrote mine, she says she didn't like it, i dont know why, but i didn't have the problems that she had on hers. I LOVE MINE looooong board..
First thing's first. This board is a carving deck meant for slalom-style skating. This board will not let you do tricks on it, save slides. Its trucks are mounted at the very far extremes of the deck, therefore the board has a lower center of gravity, making it so you can better maintain balance through high speed turns. If you are considering buying this deck, in the near future you will want to upgrade the bearings, wheels, and trucks.
I use this board in parking decks and on large hills. It's carving abilities make it very easy to burn off speed by carving (as in snowboarding) without much need for foot-braking (although foot-braking is necessary in a city environment.). If you purchase/make sliding gloves, you will only enjoy this board more. The super-low center of gravity from the deck's shape makes it easy to stay in control.
The weakness of this deck however, is its factory hardware. The trucks are heavy, the wheels are narrow and hard (the opposite is generally used in slalom boards), and the bearings are average at best. But don't let these things stop you, the deck alone is easily worth what Overstock charges, and the factory equipment is perfect for those who want to jump in quickly. The factory hardware leaves room for improvement and customization.
Got this for my 11 year old for Christmas. Was a little worried because it was so much cheaper than others I've found but it works great. Goes pretty fast also. He is 110 pounds and it has great speed with him!
