Freedom Dolly Lil Birdy 30" Skateboard Complete
I got this board after using a 42" Stella bamboo which had a ton of flex- so this little Dolly was quite a departure from that. This board is pretty stiff, and the wheels are quite a bit harder than those on my Stella- but those are just differences that make the board unique. I have only been boarding for a couple of months now, so I don't do any tricks and haven't really gotten into customizing my rides, but if you're looking for a compact, complete, cruiser- this cute Freedom Dolly really couldn't get much better.
I mostly use her for getting back and forth from class, so I loosened the trucks to make it a bit easier to make turns. The only problem I've encountered is that if you lean too much into a turn, two wheels will pop off of the ground. I'm sure there's some way to fix/change this, but it doesn't really get in the way or anything.
I would recommend this board if you plan to do any traveling via airplane; I had no trouble getting the board on as a carry-on because of its small size. I would also recommend this board to anyone looking for a decent beginner's board, a good stiff cruiser, or a compact companion to a larger board.
