Vinyl Cruiser Stereo Skateboard Review
This skateboard is a lot of fun in one simple board! With a durable body, wheels that grip well and a good retro look, this skateboard should be a winner with your kids whether it’s for use at the skateboard park, playing outside the house or going to school. It comes in a lot of different bright colours that you can see on the right here so you can find one for any tastes.
The Stereo Vinyl Cruiser Plastic Complete skateboard has the features of a longboard but is shorter in length. A lot of people prefer this type of design. The back foot goes sideways behind the front foot. It’s suitable for either beginners or experienced skateboarders. If you take your skateboarding seriously this probably won’t be your main board but an extra one for fun and variety.
You get stickers to decorate your board and free sunglasses which obviously are not great quality but just for fun and to complete the retro vinyl look.
The main criticism that users have of this board relates to the bearings. They are not top quality and after some use (or right away in some cases) they might have an effect on speed. A beginner is not likely to notice this but serious skaters will want to replace the built in bearings with better quality ones. This is quite easy to do.
So, should you get the Vinyl Cruiser from Stereo Skateboards? We think probably yes. The price is very affordable so it won’t make a big dent in your wallet even if you decide to replace the bearings. If you are looking around for a good basic and fun skateboard for yourself or your kid, this could very well be the answer.
