I am thoroughly enjoying this product. First of all, I must say, I love the clear grip tape design with the wood exposed underneath. I also love the subtle colors used on the underside of the board giving it a relaxed look. the board is a perfect size for me, I am 6", and it doesn't really flex at all, which could be either a good or bad thing. They have wonderful 70mm wheels and it feels so smooth when riding down a hill. Its OK for carving,not the best, but it is perfect for cruising which I got the product for. The wood feels durable and you do not have to pump too often to get this thing rolling. It turns perfectly for me, not too tight that you can't make u-turns, but not so loose so you wobble down big hills.I would recommend this product to any level of rider, and it is the perfect board for cruising.
