Much better than expected
on 29 January 2015
I've been underwhelmed by a couple of Osprey boards in the past but this one came up so cheaply (£22) that I had to give it a try, and I'm glad I did.
The board's finish looks good and the wheels run smoothly. I've not hit anything yet but the wheels seem tough, and just flexible enough to avoid easy chipping. With all boards of this size I've been nervous about putting all my weight too near to the centre, but this actually feels quite strong and is less creaky than the last Osprey longboard I tried.
I've had to deduct one star because it doesn't turn as much as I'd like while in motion, but I think I can alleviate this by slightly loosening a couple of bolts.
A long-term longboarder may well want something more expensive and specialized, but for a beginner or occasional user, I'd highly recommend this (at a decent discount).
