only downfall, grip. the spray on clear grip is not really a lot and if you're trying to carve down a hill it might not be enough, i eventually got spray on grip and made it better. Also, if you're short it may be a bit awkward of a board for you. Tried teaching my friend who was 5'2" and she was having trouble on it. I'm 5' 9" and its fine for me.
this board would be a good introduction to the longboarding world but keep in mind that you wont be able to do any kind of sliding or freestyle. this board is a COMMUTER nothing more
*(Definitely spend the money to get bushings made for you're weight and ride style. Bushings make ALL the difference in the ride.)*
My main purpose is cruising, carving, commuting, and some downhill. All of which, this board is perfect for. I've been riding this board daily for almost a year and I'm very happy with my purchase. It has actually become my main mode of transportation.
Being that this was my first longboard, I can say that I HIGHLY recommend it to beginners.
I love the flex in this deck. If you prefer a less flexy board, go with either the Arbor Koa 46" pintail or the Sector 9 46" Bamboo pintail. I've tried both, and I really missed the flex of my board while riding them.
The clear grip tape is pretty awesome, but if you want it to stay nice looking I recommend cleaning it after riding. Especially after riding in rain.
