This board isn't bad. The only boards better than this for the price are Churchillm boards. Go to their website at churchillmfg to check out their stuff. Super great quality for cheap. It's unheard of. Anywho, this board is a 7 ply with camber (as most 7 plys are). This means the board is slightly convex from truck to truck to allow for the flex of the board. As a drop through deck with 7 plys, it is a breeze to push. really comfy ride. It's slightly concave (from side to side) but nothing to get your hopes up about as it is fairly flat. The board is wider in the back than the front. Doesn't make that big of difference but I prefer symmetrical boards for tricks. This board isn't uncomfortable to ride switch so I wouldn't be worried about that. However, it doesn't have any kicks. One side has about as much as a loaded dervish (which many people manage to trick on) and the other side is almost impossible to trick on.
The wheels have a durometer of 78a. That means they are soft wheels and are grippy. This makes for a comfortable ride a no fear of the board sliding out from under you. You can break these in to do slides if you're interested in getting into that. These wheels have a rounded lip. That means they are easier to break into slides with and will cone more naturally. Normally you can do that with any wheel, but take the green Atom for example: The wheels have a flat lip and the thane used in the wheel is clearly cheap and meant to grip.Read more ›
Once I began using the board on campus I became pleased with its downhill abilities even more, easily getting up to speeds of 15-25 mph. Because of the flex however, the board tends to flex and bounce on high speed maneuvers (I'm 6'0 and 150- for anyone heavier it might be a little scary). The biggest let down of the board however is the constant retightening of the trucks- after a few days of riding on bricks and pavement I was horrified to notice how loose my trucks became- missing a couple screw heads can screw you over... so buy a cheap skateboard tool. Other students with more expensive boards can identify the cheap $100 qualities such as the wheel size and trucks.
In conclusion: if you're under the age of 15 and want to try longboarding out- by all means buy this. If you have experience with skating and want to try a drop though... there's a reason why good decks cost $300+
I initially over-tightened my trucks and didn't really like it at all.. loosened them back up and now it's fantastic.
The grip tape does seem like it might rub off pretty easily (can already see a little bit of wear after only a few hours of riding) but that's very easily and cheaply replaced.
Buy this board, you won't regret it.

This board has lasted me two very rough summers and that is saying something I play even more rough.
I will bet it has one more summer left.
Solid board solid deal.
