Hey guys, I’ve got a friend looking to purchase a shortboard for around $500. I know there’s a few options out there but I was wondering what y’all think. He’s not really looking to build one due to time constraints, so we’re talking pre-builts.
What are the best options? This is what I have so far.
Okay, kinda sketchy at top end of speed, okay range.
Also okay, range is okay, sketchy at top speed.
Haven’t heard much of it, looks kinda bad tbh.
Boosted mini: out of price range
Acton: probably nope
Random amazon boards: def nope
My comments on some of these boards are just based on Youtube reviews, I haven’t ridden any.
I sent him the BuildKitBoards kit as my best recommendation right now. He’s also a mechanical engineer like myself, so the basic assembly is no problem. I suggested that he save a little bit because the quality is just better than the other options out there.
@BuildKitBoards Jared’s site says “preorder” for some reason, not sure if you are waiting for parts or what exactly. Do you know what an ETA would be on availability?
What do you guys think?
