This board is so much fun. I just hit 40 years old, so I feel most comfortable on a longboard, but I wanted to try out a more traditional deck to push myself into learning a different style of riding. The deck feels great, and has an awesome design. Just seeing the graphic makes me smile and want to ride more. The big wheels make it perfect for cruising, and they haven't slowed me down on learning some basic street tricks. This board has also pushed me into trying out some transition skating for the first time. The Sloth is extremely versatile and has pushed me out of my comfort zone while still making it a blast to ride. It's the board I've been throwing in my car for when I find that perfect spot to ride, or just to grab to push around town - its another great skate and explore board by LY.
