    Good cruiser

    This is an interesting cruiser because of the turny RKP trucks on a relatively short wheelbase. I was worried that the board would feel unstable or wobbly as a result, but it really wasn’t an issue. It is fun to ride around and turns on a dime. The Paris trucks are obviously a great compliment to the hardwood deck. Overall it is a beautiful board and I get compliments every time I take it out.
