            Great All Round Trucks

            This board comes with the 10″ gull wing charger trucks which offer an awesome balance of stability and flexibility, making this board a breeze to ride and carve on.

            Keep these trucks tight and you’ll be able to go bombing downhill without any fear of speed wobbles.

            Bamboo Deck

            A smooth ride is important to me and this bamboo deck has a slight flex which absorbs most of the vibration and bumps in the road and sidewalk. The deck has enough flex to feel like it has suspension, but still has enough rigidity to support the weight of a large adult.

            At 9.6 inches wide this board feels stable and is easy to control downhill. Those of you with larger feet or beginner riders will appreciate the extra foot space on this deck.

            An All Rounder

            At 42 inches in length with 78A wheels this board is a great all rounder. Whether you enjoy cruising, downhill or freeriding, this board has something for you. The only activity we’d suggest avoiding on this board is slalom as it’s deck length is too long and the wheels are a little large for that.

            Beginners will find this board a piece of cake to ride on thanks to it’s large board area and high stability. More experienced riders can test their borders with some extreme carving or bombing downhill at high speed.

              Hey Allison,

              Thanks for reaching out to us.

              Being quite a tall woman this board will suit you well with the level of flex/rigidity in the board and the 9.6″ width will benefit you too, giving you plenty of foot space. I’m 6ft 1 and I get along on this board fine.

              The Lookout II is very stable and forgiving at 42 inches in length – that makes it pretty well suited as an ‘all-rounder’.

              We try to remain impartial, so I won’t *tell* you what to buy, but everyone I know who has one is happy with their purchase.

              This board is freaking amazing! If your budget stretches to buy this then it is definitely worth the extra dollars. It is awesome for all riding types. I really can’t find fault with it after 9 months of heavy use. You get what you pay for in longboarding, and this Sector 9 is the business.
