Not a bad deal but not super slick either. If you are on the chubbier end of the spectrum pass on this and get something with less flex in the board.

Decent Board for Cheap, August 10, 2011
By Timothy Roberts "pokerstar hero"
This review is from: Surf One Robert August II Complete Longboard (8.875 x 43.75) (Sports)
I am not a professional longboarded, but I do skate at least 3 times a week. This was my second board that I purchased, the first being a 9two5 by LY. I got this one because 1)it looks amazing and 2)could always use an extra cruiser.
This board feels and rides pretty decent. It has a little flex in the board, which makes it unstable at faster speeds. (I've had mine up to 30-ish mph. without the wobbles.) but horrible for carving. The board gets wheelbite the first time you try to take a turn. This is a fun board to cruise with, but it is too heavy to be a commuter, too stiff to be a carver, and too loose to be a DH. It is a good beginner board, but anyone who wants to start sliding and having fun shouldn't buy this board.
