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!!!
This is the first longboard I ever purchased and it has served me better than I had ever hoped for. Fantastic board, especially for what you pay for it.
I'd say this longboard is a price performer. I bought it for my 12 year old son. He's not an expert, but has been using it to go back and forth from school this year. It has the right amount of cool and performance (or so I'm told) and I'd buy it again.
