Totally awesome dude! Great little board.
I was very kindly sent this Red/Blue 22 inch mini Cruiser style skateboard by Ridge for review purposes. I was quite excited to see this as a long time penny skateboarder of the 70's. I wasn't so much into tricks as using mine as a mode of transport in my baggy jeans and Dunlop Greenflash pumps with reversed New York Cosmos cap around the streets of Liverpool in the long hot summers I remember so well. . . .
I have had it for around a month now and seeing as I'm past my skateboarding best 'ahem' I lent it out to a local skateboarder to test out for me! So this is a user's review after one month's use. . . .
The board was delivered very well presented and for me has that wow factor as you lift it out of the box. As you handle it for the first time you can feel the excellent build quality of this board. The blue deck compliments the red wheels really well and reminded me of Superman! I was 8 again for a few minutes :)
The board itself is blank with no...
