This would be a good board for a beginner. Soft, forgiving of mistakes, and easy to ride. And cheap! For anyone that requires a little more from their boards though, this is not for you. First of all the stance options are pretty minimal. You have to change your stance more than an inch wider or skinnier if you want to stay somewhat centered on the board. Otherwise you'll be almost an inch set back. To me the board felt dead. Pretty fun on rails and boxes, but when you take it out of the park it falls short. No pop, difficult to hold an edge at speed, etc.
Overall not a bad board, but nothing great either.
