The board has incredible grip! It feels like I'm riding a cloud, to be honest. The colors are beautiful and even better in person! When you ride the skateboard it can ride over rocks and do more tricks, unlike the 22" penny. same wheels, but the board size makes an amazing difference. It's perfect for beginners, I'd say ideal if you're looking into cruisers. I'm 5'0 and you'd think that the board would look big, or feel uncomfortable to ride at this height and being lightweight, but it fits me quite well. I'm surprised! It's very well durability and it's capable of many things. I do suggest not to ride it in puddles, it can rust the bolts and bearings. Otherwise, it's great!
