Arbor Fleetwood Maple LongboardArbor’s Fleetwood Maple Longboard provides an awesome ride that is easy to ride at almost any speed. The classic surf aesthetics look and feel mixed with modern – day components give a predictable, versatile ride to you that’s equally at home touring the boardwalk or bombing parking garages.

The Fleetwood has an attractive clear tapered shape and a good classic feel. First off let me give you a little information on myself the reviewer I am 185 lbs, and my height is 6′ 1″. I am partial to riding longboards that aren’t too flexy but also not too stiff either, more like some where in the middle. The Arbor Fleetwood Maple gives me just that and is a smooth ride. This board also carves well too and honestly feels like I’m riding a surf board on land. I’ve been able to reach crazy speeds while ridding down hill and haven’t experienced any stability issues. It also makes a good cruiser for going around town, but if that’s all you plan on doing I would look into getting a smaller board.

Like all Arbor decks the graphics and design are very beautiful. I highly recommened this longboard as a great overall board.
