Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I only found that after purchasing this board, you can get a similar price on the same line of boards at Walmart. Besides that, the skateboard itself is okay. Having owned a number of boards throughout the years, the board is better than a generic board from Toys "R" Us, but definitely lacking compared to custom-built board. The wheels do not allow you to ride as fast as a custom-built board, and the deck does not feel as sturdy so if you're planning to do a lot of tricks, you can expect a relatively short board lifespan. Overall plus, decent price. Overall negatives, moderate to slow speed and weak durability.
The bearings are absolute crap!!! They have an ABEC rating of 3. You're basically having to push this board every 6 feet. That being said, it's a pretty decent board otherwise. It feels sturdy and has great grip tape. It's a great board for beginners.
