Perfect little board for college campus cruising. It fits perfectly into gym lockers, isn't too large to carry around, and is fairly nimble (trucks come a bit tight and might end up going with softer bushings). Downside is how rough and stiff the board is for cracks in the sidewalk and such, even with such soft wheels, for a longboard. I plan on getting better larger wheels for it and better bearings. However, if you're used to a regular skateboard it's comparatively smooth as butter. In the end it's probably best to buy just the deck and customize the rest, but if you aren't sure this is still a good board on it's own. Overall it's a great board that I ride everyday for transportation with a timeless style I can get behind.
