If you're old like me this is a great way to get some exercise. Get a helmet though. You have to protect your melon because it is your livelihood. Maybe some wrist guards too. Find a place to ride and do it. I have a new development going in by my house with all brand new roads and nothing built there yet. It's perfect. Wide roads, smooth pavement, and no cars or people to avoid.
It is flexy, but not so much that you feel on a trampoline, plenty of wheelbase to withstand speed and comfort standing on it. The concave is aggressive compared to other similar boards, but still very comfortable, helping to know where are you standing on the board.
Just overall a good, nice board!! Quality grippe, quality board, nice/durable graphic and just lots of fun.
also if your thinking on your first board my suggestion is if your want easy push, downhill/crusing/FREESTYLE get this board. the kicktails are there to help with tricks. the loaded dervish is also an alternative in this category but is a bit pricey. if you want some extra easy push,downhill/crusing/FREERIDE get the switchblade. the switchblade(or something of similar shape) has a double drop to help push and locks you in for FREERIDE(180/360 turns etc). i personally have both the landyacthz switchblade 40 and the drop carve 40 and i like the Landy DC if i want fun tricks+ push if i want to head long distance i use the Landy SB
I have bear grizzly trucks, abec11 flashbacks 81a wheels, and bones red bearings. It's not too great for going downhill really fast (major speed wobble) but that's my only complaint. And that might be because the trucks are pretty loose.
Also, for the color conscious people: the picture shown on the website isn't exactly accurate, the colors are much more vibrant. The underside looks like the color of wood online, but in reality it is bright orange, kind of like the orange on this website.
Overall, the best $200 I've ever spent!
Would recommend to a friend!
Totaly worth the price.
Nice flex and concave.
Great for Carving, Cruising, Sliding, Pushing.....
Would recommend it for downhill though,....
(with downhill I mean 30 mph and higher)
Don't be scared to go down smaller hills.... ;)
Overall its a very good board for all kinds of stuff of freeriding...!
