I have an Arbor Mission koa board, so I was looking for something a bit smaller that I could lug around when it felt a bit too big for the occasion. This board is absolutely perfect for that! Small, but not too small (then again, I am a 5'2'' chick) and it preforms great. I found the stock bearings were not the best. However, that didn't bug me too much because I replaced them with some Bone Reds which aren't too expensive but make a hell of a difference. Overall, I would definitely recommend this board to anyone who is looking for a smaller ride with great performance... and wants higher quality parts and wood rather than plastic crap. Super fun ride.
