    Worth every penny.

    Oxelo has done a really good job with this board. Does everything I want it to and then some. I bought this longboard to cruise around the neighborhood and commute from place to place. It does an exceptional job at that, something my regular trick skateboard finds difficult.(For obvious reasons) The longboard itself is of very high quality. The deck is nice and stiff with only a mild flex to absorb all that chatter from the road. It does work of bad and patchy road very well and the wheels are nice and soft. The bearings were one of the concerns for me before ordering this board but i must say, they are really really smooth. You can pick up the pace with only a couple of pushes. That said, if you try and go over rocks and stuff on the road, there are chances of you falling, you have been warned. I'm a tall and heavy guy and the board holds me well, I must say. The trucks on the board come tightened pretty hard so you might want to loosen it up a bit if you want it to turn quickly. The board is a tad bit heavy, but hey, which longboard isn't? I feel much secure on it than i do on those smaller penny boards, and on Indian roads where you don't see a lot of people skate, that's what you want because the traffic. All in all, I'm pretty happy with this board from Oxelo. I'm always looking forward to skating it some more every time i see it. It's good exercise too.
