I have a Santa Cruz as my first board. The Santa Cruz boards are good for being a first board. He had broken his by curbing it once and bought another one just like it. My Santa Cruz is beat up but still ridable. The trucks are horrible. Once I road caliber trucks I never want to ride my Santa Cruz again.
Haha I got the same one but I have black wheels but that board is probably one of the best I have had it rides smooth and goes fast like for down hill and stuff plus it's a really heavy and really easy to not get speed wobbles
