Retrospec Zed Longboard Skateboard Reviews
Unboxing and Review
[Music] what is up YouTube today we're taking a look at the 10 toes ed longboard which I've just bought from Amazon CA this video is kind of going to be like a little bit of an unboxing even though it's already out of the box still got some plastic wrap on it so here we go I'm brand new to longboarding so I'm not really familiar with most of the terms but I do know that this this kind of packaging is prevalent in some of the skateboards and other long boards so the problem here is that the plastic wrap goes under the trucks there's kind of a problem but I'm kind of lazy so I'm just going to see how much plastic I can get off while ripping it so now that most of the plastics off I can kind of tell you a bit about this board so what is listed as on Amazon is the ten toes boards emporiums at bamboo longboard skateboard cruiser with a with a length of 44 inches and the colors the kelp fish tails you can see over here I'll give a close to give you guys a closer look of the graphic later so in the description here it says it's a 44 inch artisan longboard made from beautiful bamboo design right here in Los Angeles for a strikingly vintage California look mmm gotta love that California look it also comes with rugged and lightweight 7 inch aluminum trucks the trucks are right here reactive and smooth gliding reverse kingpin trucks with precision a back 7 bearings which are here pew casted black bushing 98 which I don't know what is so I'll be honest here bamboo and it comes with a bamboo and maple hybrid board with a bamboo deck and kick tail so this is this whole board area right here and the wheels are durable and they are 70 by 51 millimeters 85 AP wheels with rock finish now I don't know what all that means so you're just gonna have to bear with me here but sounds pretty cool right flip it around give it a little spin and I'll show you what it looks like from head to toe so as you can see here we have the ten toes logo and this color right here that's the kelp fish tail logo looks pretty cool and on top we have that uh we have that uh we have that grip tape and this is the logo right here with the three lines and we got those kelp licking wheels as well on Amazon dot see this board costs about go to 80 bucks give or take the tax I went to the mall was looking for like a longboard you know just to ride around and I and the price of are upwards of two hundred three hundred which is kind of nuts considering I know nothing about longboard so I went on Amazon dot C and found this pretty cool board here the ten toes dead board and it's a pretty sweet deal for beginners so I'm very happy with this board and I said as a beginner I don't know much about long boards so this is a pretty great deal for only eighty bucks online shipping came in really quick it was a with prime minister days might be a bit longer if you just order a regular but that's what you get definitely looking forward to riding this around giving it a try definitely looking forward to this definitely looking forward to riding this longboard and giving it a try as you can see here the wheels as you can see here the wheels they're pretty good I'm not I don't know much about wheels so they feel alright everything feels pretty solid here so with the review done we can take it out for a spin [Music]
Monica Smith Review
what something that they how are you guys doing I'm doing great I'm actually doing very very great my longboard finally came in mind you I don't know how to longboard this is my first one horse I don't know how to skateboard either I don't have one of those but we're going to learn together or maybe not how this is going to learn and like show you guys later I'm so excited I'm so so if you know any about me what you probably told everything about me I wanted to learn how to longboard flash skateboard for at least a year and a half now but I never got around to it don't be pulling things up and then just recently I was like no what no more no more excuses I'll figure this out we don't do this together so first things first I want to get logistics out of the way but sometimes goes for Emporia State shop apparently that's located in LA IRAs on the other side of the country so that really means helping to me except to the fact that I just really want to go to California now take a look this is a pentose little girl I don't really know if you can see that so I mean I hope so it cost me 59.99 but they do have free shipping you can buy this on Amazon and I think prime delivery is available but every time I try to order it from Amazon and it doesn't probably wasn't available and then they try to charge the nine bucks for shipping so that's like $70 when you could just get it from their website go to their website I'll link it down below when I understand they also have free returns for upsell like 50 days or something like that like you can do what you do customer service wise I think it's a pretty solid company I in the past week waiting for my longboard I follow them on social media I post them on Instagram and on Facebook and their customer service team seems to be responses I also asked like I was able to acute click lessons I'm wondering when these long boards already in stock because let me just let me just say this real quick these long boards go out of stock so fast oh my god and I'm so happy that I got money from one yeah so customers are pretty solid delivery they ship this baby out I think within a day or two what I ordered it I ordered it last week week and a half ago something like that so this can fairly quickly I mean considering the fact that I live like I said on the East Coast and I haven't started you I'm actually so excited but just literally the knife I used to cook my food with like I cut vegetables and meat with this night so I only have one knife that's all kind of [Music] my god oh my god oh so excited the coolest thing ever in my opinion this just made my ear this is this is that I ended up getting very simple that's the design I got it's called white flora very very simple I can't believe I did this so I'm gonna try standing on it mind you I've never done this before so worth popping all the charrids right now I won it and I did my research before I bought this I didn't just get it oh my god jeez you know what's funny I was actually born in New Zealand but I didn't stay long enough to like actually do anything cool people who actually like skater going to watch this to say you're doing it wrong I was doing oh you know what is the first time is so amazing I'm obviously not pro for what this thing needs to do I think it'll be just fine I got any job over the summer it's not quite driving distance is only about a mile away so I'm probably going to use this as my main form of transportation hell yeah delay set it like and don't know how to longboard like let's just learn together there's so many tutorials on YouTube later native learning alright so I'm just going to do a quick little recap got this incentive for Emporium to make down Holly they get a 10 out of 10 for products for delivery speed for customer service for everything and for price as well as for 60 bucks love I'm in college I don't know all the money in the world to spend most emotion I want to do so this great I love it I think it's adorable it's cute and yeah I'm going to show you some close-up visuals of it [Music] Oh God this is so beautiful oh why am I like this
Braille Skateboarding Review
long board this is short board what is the difference between this and this well basically this one is long so this is another episode of verse where we take to entirely opinion istic if that's even a word things and we talk about them and then you guys fight in the comments about what's better or worse or what do you guys think well this board is obviously a long board and this board is a short board and essentially what it is is like this board right here is more of a trick skateboard it's short and it's more able to be flipped around and you can do tricks on it easier and then this board has these giant soft wheels and it's more of like a cruiser board so what are you doing this board you like cruise kind of just skate around the city like this you probably can't hear it like super well but you can the wheels are nice and soft like one push on this cruiser board and you're just just straight cruising see that Cruiser board style longboard surfer style but then I get on this board and it's just a different a different feel a different style the sport is obviously more for tricks I'm probably not going to do that on that board it can be done you can do tricks on a longboard but definitely not as easy essentially that's the difference between a long board and a short board now a lot of people I feel like are going to college and they start out with this kind of a board and they go I want something that's going to get me from this class over here to that class over here and I'm going to like be comfortable on it roll nice and smooth that's kind of the purpose of these you can just take one nice big push and just roll really far and it's nice and smooth not a lot of effort involved and that's kind of what these are good for the problem with that you're not really going to be like hauling up curbs and doing tricks and various things like that so with that in mind once you want to like step up to the next level you might be good to go to a board like this it might be good to have both of these boards so you start out learning to ride on this and get really comfortable there just step one skateboarding made simple learning to ride turn various things like that and then you go to a board like this once you really get good on a board like this you can go from point A to point B and do tricks along the way and it's super fun go down curbs pop up curbs ride cruise it's it's tons of fun it's actually becomes a little bit more fun in my opinion to ride this than this but if you have only learned how to ride this this is still fun and it's still cool but it's just not quite as cool as like rolling from Class A to class be doing like tre flips on the way like let's just be honest you want to bust a mean triplet and have all the girls in the school being like hey Matt Caleb who's sick that's my opinion on short board versus long board so here's my check on the longboard not bad eh not bad just gonna gotta push backwards and just plan it sister style this very like surfer surfer accent cichlid stuck but takes a lot of energy this part is it's so big man shouting act like I'm a professional longboard - money - money anyway there seems to be a bit of controversy in the world as to what's cooler riding along boards for riding a short board and I kind of like don't want to pick these two things against each other like why do we have to argue between longboarders and short boarders when we can all just agree that we like riding skateboards with wheels and kind of go from there I think more longboarders should learn to ride this kind of board just so they can do tricks and they can feel the feeling of landing a tre flip just like the amazing feeling of like oh so much fun it's so much fun this is also fun you know skateboarding is just about having fun that's really all it is but yeah shoutout to revised skateboards you guys should definitely go there pick up a short board if you've gotten really good at riding that might be time to pick up one of these guys and learn some tricks skateboarding made simple vol.1 will get you there we want to teach a lot of people how to skate that means some longboarders will start writing this and vice versa and why not so let's take it down do some tricks definitely check out skateboarding made simple it's available in all these platforms iBooks Braille skateboarding comm and Google Play it's the most comprehensive video we've ever made and it teaches skateboarding better than anything else out there you won't be disappointed you
Trying It Out
[Music] all right so we showed you guys these boards and that is about all that I did I haven't use the board again however I'm putting shoes on because I have this idea that wearing shoes will make it easier and we have this what is this pick call it's a couple Gnostic except it's more expensive than the board so we're going to see if it's even doable he'll be made like a pretty cool what is this stuff is it this is Andres yes the kite of the rod from the drape and then a ball like a rubber ball we try to look exactly like it and it's supposed to be a really good upper body first of all I guess if do you feel it everywhere this is a whole balancing so we're going to see how it is for a beginner to use this for the very first time how hard is it but what if I fall so horribly no all right so we're just going to review it and have fun some fun we'll see how far I go my neighbors are going to get a laugh out of this ha ha ha ha let's go though are you ready to go [Applause] [Music] are you ready so you're wearing water okay so cool way to find out which foot should go forward on the board for your beginners will show you guys a little step on how we figure it out [Music] obviously the foot you step forward with is the main thought that should be forward in front of you see the point is to lose your balance and your subconscious will respond with the legs that you're most comfortable with I would rather go uphill because that or go ahead stop and because my balance is data prepared to make a fool of myself and see what [Music] [Music] it's a little scary because it's down help of picks up speed really quick i'ma try to survive very difficult it's going uphill - we got Aniela would think [Music] [Music] Oh [Music] not [Music] we were all dressed up is she so ready to go she's addicted right you're addicted she does not know when to stop before last time okay did you Betty we learn that we sure mommy [Applause] [Music] back and forth [Music] I'd say they're pretty cool as a beginner it's not I mean it's what is expected you're gonna feel a little weird bounce I'm gonna be off but I think a couple more tries and I think I'll do better I mean I won't be no pro don't get me wrong you know no skater or any of that but it was pretty cool cool workout I'm kinda hot and sweaty sitting was cool like work your arms and your and your core I was like I should buy some gloves for like grip and protection and keep going right I think we should put Luna and Lila Mac in the middle and so it was getting easier to control it turn and so I think a little bit more time a couple maybe three more times when our neighbors won't be less intense anymore but overall it's pretty cool board wooden chain does what what intrigued us was actually we saw a bigger board where they had two adults on it it was pretty cool one would sit the other one would like maneuver it and we wanted it for Lila really Cole used to do it as a family something new you know try something different it doesn't work it doesn't work but in this case I thought it was pretty fun anyways I hope you guys enjoyed the video if you did give it a thumbs up subscribe if you haven't already hit that Bell for notifications and until tomorrow Holly [Music]

green so there it is it's pretty awesome one here's another vlog we're not going to be doing nothing but just longboarding see that I got me as V along boy and it just came in I was going to my grandma's house that's where I had wanted it to go and my brother parked there and loop they do the UPS guy pulled up right at the same time and he got it it said ten toes grandpa dude I said this is mine so they're thinking but we're going to write it here real quick I have all this grass between the cracks it's kind of hard to skate a little bit because I freaking love skateboarding you know I used to have a board but it snapped in half I was doing a kickflip I think and it just snapped in half I was like eleven but now I got a big boy longboard so it's going to write it again guys this this is like this shit is fun right Maddox I don't know if you're probably watching this wet shit I don't have a lot of concrete in my backyard so this is skatepark win in my town or my city I'm probably going to go to alright it's actually pretty close all right you'll go guys this is freaking fun I'm sweating too this freaking hot I'm pretty much an amateur I know I don't really know what I'm much like look here let me just show my guy so I'm going to take off the longboard here real quick oh this we'll still go for don't fall give you all that longboard or skateboard please help me please look when I skate I do this you know how you're supposed to then I push push push and then like what I'm what I'm cruising you know this foot is like this but this foot stays a lot like this like I don't know I can't do my footwork as well so I'm pretty much Amateur as of right now until I get my footwork and then I'll be up again here or whatever all right I'm going to show you see see my foot stays our dear because I don't know how to do my footwork yet because it's been a couple years my skateboard broke it when I was 11 and I'm 13 now so it's like three years ago see guys it's we can find great actually this video isn't going to be a blog um I'm gonna I'm going to edit my new video okay whoo let's go let's ride let's ride but if you're into my snapchat or is the last video here here's my longboard they didn't see my long voice oh my god guys guys Johanna like like long board or skated ever in your life you need to try it what I remake what I recommend is the ten toes this is not a paid advertising or what the hell every um you know it's just it's a pretty they're pretty good board brand you know I'm pretty big already big eyes good sturdy you know it's dirty so uh it's dirty so let's just see it's dirty guys it's fast it's good it's clean you know it's it's it's amazing you know when I look back at my skateboarding days skateboarding a long boarding and not the same thing because two different kind of boards remember that but um the thing about it is oh hey almost health but um I like I kind of like the longboard better because uh they're like these long boards because they're more for cruising you know that's why I wanted to do with my skateboard but you know you gotta know the differences between a skateboard and a longboard because if you go you're going to fuck yourself up but um you know the difference between a longboard is it's longer it's meant for cruising go to Santos comm order you're 44 inch longboard but uh the only reason why I recommend longboard more than skateboards is because spirit guy like me you like to cruise a lot of boards out for you but skateboards if you like to do tricks keep foot gate boards are for you so I'm sweating the top right here it is here with everything next 100 that current that freakin curves Oh bro skateboarding is like fucking awesome I selected you know I'm I'm better at at skating like flat surfaces so crash like this are okay but like on the street like what those like Linda uh when the sidewalks like goes up and other parts down that's very bad unless you're on the skate where you can just pop right over it but um I don't even know guys it's just it's just freaking awesome it's fine it's amazing I enjoy it so um you know this is I've been wanting to do this all year you know friends and family have been getting mad at me because I spent all my birthday money in one week and I only did that because I wanted a longboard longboard was like $70 or 60 I don't know but uh it was free shipping so I got to get it but uh you know I might take this out to the skate park I'm not too sure I'm just getting the skill to it I think this actually I'm going to work longer with my long boarding stuff is a cruising on on the street because I think it's cruising on the street because I just I just think would be funny but uh anyways guys I'm going to do this last one with y'all and then I'm out of here I'm going to go play some Unsoeld on come on guys yeah y'all gotta start watching my life spins come on like in my life seems tell me what y'all what y'all would like to see and I'll do it I'll do anything clear then butter last run up and down or just up and I'm going to slice because it's hotter than hell that's how you do that anyways guys it has an mo pop-rock guys enjoy I'll got guys enjoyed this video oh shit but however I'll enjoy this video more than I did putting out for you one last run I act one last hit you're so fun look watch my footwork see that what
