Atom Pintail Longboard

The Atom Pintail Longboard is a perfect entry-level longboard with an inexpensive price tag. Its traditional pin deck shape makes it so that you wouldn’t ever have to worry about wheel bite. The Atom’s pintail design also makes it easier to make sharp turns down hill.

The Atom Pintail is the very first board that I ever bought, it was the original board that first got me interested in the longboarding sport to begin with.

Just to tell you a little more about myself, I am 5’11’’ and 178 lbs. And this board holds me perfectly while giving some good flex. This longboard appears to be pretty tough and hold up to even my roughest abuse while riding.

I ended up buying new bearings and putting them on the board and found that it was a great upgrade. I personally recommend the red bones bearing if your interested.

I give this board a 5 star ratting. It super cheap yet holds up like the other more expensive boards out there costing two or three times as much. So if your looking for a cheap board or simply want a nice beginner board I would recommend checking this one out.
