Purchased this beau yesterday. A good board, really sturdy, but when I grabbed it from Fast Times, the grip was easy to rip off maybe due to it collecting dust, always change the grip tape you guys be safe out there. All in all, this beau carves and is really easy to turn, running a lil' downhill and you'll definitely fly along with it. Great for intermediate to expert level cruising but is also good for beginners to learn (just on a flat and continuous road, no rocks or pebbles). The size is definitely good for beginners too, if they want to have a board that acts like a longboard but is portable enough (longboards are safer to use especially for beginners since the longer the board the stable it is) and the design and colour scheme is a nice touch too (my boyfriend and best friend loves green). DEFINITELY WORTH BUYING AND RIDING. Happy cruising!
