This particular longboard was the first one I've ever purchased, so naturally I had some reservations about purchasing it online through Amazon. What I recieved was a really good longboard that I hope to use far into the future. It rides well, provides good turning that gets me through even the tightest crowds at school. I use it primarily to get around campus and it works great. A little hefty, but manageable.
When I first got the board it had an unexplainable rattle that worried me, so I took it to a friend and we worked out the problem--tightened the trucks and wheels. That worked a little, so then we tried taking off all the wheels for good measure. What we found was that instead of having washers on both sides, as per usual, there were only washers on one side of the wheel. He had some spares so we just added those to the longboard, and it has been smooth sailing. Hopefully this was an isolated incident. If not, the washers are pretty cheap to get.
All in all a solid longboard. $130 was a decent price, and it rides great, not to mention looks beautiful. I have gotten many complements (many from seasoned boarding vets) about its appearance.
