Top positive review
The original wave board
29 January 2018
Bought this for my son - 10 Y. he loves it. At first I was apprehensive due to the slightly smaller size of this Ripster compared to the Castor or other brands like Oxelo. However, after using this for 5 minutes, 'the expert' review given by my son was that, this was actually better than the other waveboards that his friends had. His opinion, was that this size helped him take sharper turns as opposed to the longer wave boards.
Also, since Ripstik was the first company to manufacture waveboards, the quality is top notch. The wheels are super smooth and sturdy and can withstand rough usage ( rough being subjective, though ! ) . My son has had others learn on this waveboard and ridden this on uneven concrete ground, and there is no sign on wear and tear of the wheels yet.
I will wait for a few more months, and update this review in case there is any negative to report. However as of now, no complaints at all
