A shopper asked: For my first longboard is this a good one? I skated a little bit before on a skateboard, and I'm not that good. Should I get it as my first board May 16, 2014

T. PearceStaff: This board is awesome, and the shag is actually really comfortable. However, for your first long board I don't think that this is quite what you'd be expecting.

This board isn't a traditional longboard (which is probably what you're thinking of), it's more of a shortboard which has a similar loadout as a longboard but isn't as long which you might have slightly a harding time turning/carving, these are meant for cruising.

I think for your first longboard you might be more comfortable with this one http://www.the-house.com/skls9mns42wh13zz-sector-9-longboards.html. It's more of a traditional longboard so it gives you a lot more space and wider making it easier to setup your feet, it's got traditional griptape (if you're still learning, the shag won't do you any favors), it's got more flex, it's got better bearings (which cuts down on the friction between the wheel and the board making it glide better and more consistent).

All in all I think you would be much happier with a traditional longboard like the Sector 9 while also making it easier to learn on.

Hope this helps!

Rae M: When I first purchased this item it waws a little bit shorter than I expected. But overall it's a good board and is perfect if you go to the beach quite often. Nice and comfy on the feet but can be weird for the first few skates. But I highly recommend it. May 18, 2014

Tiffany P: Sure. This board has a great feel to it. Your shoes won't slide on the carpet either. Any board you get you will fall but it's a pretty good starter and it rides gnarly. Hope this helps. -Tiff May 16, 2014

Gene W: I would think a longer board would be better. This board is pretty short by longboard standards and I think a longer one would be easier to learn on. May 16, 2014

A shopper asked: is this board strong enough for a 220 pound man? Jul 11, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Nathan H: I am not 220 pounds, more like 150. But it doesn't sag even a little when my 170 pound roommate stand on it together. It's short enough that you won't really break the middle unless you grind with it I'm sure. And as we all know, trucks are indestructible.
What I can say is that at 220 pounds you will find it really (and I mean really really really) easy to turn it. Which, if you're use to something longer, will certainly take some time to get used to. Going down hill, you will go fast, and that means lots of wobble. Regardless, worth it. Buy one.

A shopper asked: what happens if it gets dirty you cant change the rug? Mar 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
T. PearceStaff: It is a rug so you should be able to hand wash it if it gets really dirty. I would advise against getting the entire skateboard wet though. Some soap, and a little water, and some elbow grease should be able to clean it. Apr 8, 2014
Reply to T. Pearce Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Gene W: It does not seem that it would be easy to change the rug. It is compeltely glued on. I supposed you could separate it from the board and glue a new piece on but I don't know how well that would work. Mar 19, 2014

Gene W: The carpet seems permanently glued on to me. I don't think you could easily change it. Maybe if you use a sharp scraper and then glue new carpet on. Dec 13, 2013
Reply to Gene Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Tiffany P: The carpet is glued down. I think it would be very hard to take off. The carpet grips your shoe though if that was a concern.Hope that helps. Dec 16, 2013
