My youngest son absolutely loves this skateboard to pieces. He is on it every single day trying to learn and get better. Up until a couple of weeks ago, he had never been on a board before but he got the taste for it now and wants to keep up with his big brothers. One of my older sons is helping him learn how to ride a skateboard which includes lots of falls. I have seen this board go through everything a young boy can put it through. The board has held up very well. The design continues to look spectacular. The wheels are light up wheels and even with the rough terrain where we live and the multiple crashes, the lights are still lighting up very nicely. My oldest son, who used to skateboard a lot, has told me this board is even better than the one he started out on, which cost quite a bit more than this one. Definitely has made a young boy happy!
