Pebbles suck and cracks are lame—a kicktail is the solution.
Sure, the graphics on the Gold Coast Venice Longboard could be taken as a colorful tribute to some island and African nations, but this is a SoCal-bred sidewalk surfer. Wide trucks let you carve deep, but the relatively small 60mm wheels mean speed will come effortlessly when it’s time to outrun the stinky guy begging for change on the Venice boardwalk. The Venice boasts a kicktail to aid in rapid direction changes and front-end lift to avoid instastops courtesy of conniving cracks and sneaky pebbles.

Im a beginner at longboard and was wondering if this is good and easy board for a girl ? I just want to cruise around ? Is this the board for me? :)
Great first Board
I've had this board for about a month now, not only is the board very nice (solid board with no flex), and decent trucks, the customer service is excellent and helped me with all of my problems almost instantaneously! Only thing was that the bearings were not exactly the best, other than that everything else was great.
BIG BOY BOARD
i am 6'3 230 and this board is perfect for big people. it outright carves like a demon. The wheels are super soft and they chunk badly if your tearing up sidewalks. But this thing tears down hills, you get the feel of surf/snow the way you can just rip on your back foot. I love this board. Big dudes buy this.
Alright but stiff
A pretty fun board all together. Great for bombing hills and decent for carving. Trucks are awful tho (i just switched em out for gullwing chargers), and wheels took a little while to break in as well. My main complaint is that the board has virtually no flex and is very stiff.

what type of bearings and are the weel good for slides with wliding gloves
Ya the wheels will be good for slides. A bearing with an ABEC 5 or 7 would be a great bearing. Some that would be good are enjoi ABEC seventeenish (come with 2 extra bearings, Bones Reds, Bones Swiss (more expensive but good), ATM ABEC 5 (great price).

Hey guys, what size wheels do u think this board could handle without wheel bite? Thanx
you might be able to make it up to a 65. You also are able to purchase some risers to eliminate your wheel bite as well

Can anyone who has ridden this board give me a review?
I bought this a while back. I love the board shape itself. Its perfect for flat ground stuff and yet long enough for cruising and bombing hills. I just replaced the trucks after i got crazy speed wabbles at low speeds. I have never heard of century trucks but i bought some gullwig chargers and they work great. I also switched out the bearings for REDS. Coasts much further now.
i agree with nate marcus, century trucks suck. they dont turn unless u loosen them alot. and im 90% sure after riding them that the bushings are made of plastic. just like free skateboard trucks at walmart. second, gold coast makes really generic decks. i wouldnt drop 180 on this. sector 9 makes better decks and they hook their decks up with gullwing trucks which are usually pretty good.
