The beauty of this board is that it takes all of the features that make longboarding enjoyable and mixes them together in proportional amounts.

One of the aspects about this board that makes it attractive, especially to beginners, is its price. Many sites online, including Amazon.com, list this board for around $130. So it is in the perfect price range for a beginner or an intermediate rider who is looking for a quality board that is going to be with them for some time.
Obviously, price is not everything. It does no good to purchase an inexpensive board that is going to fall apart within weeks of taking it out-of-the-box. Quality is more important than price. And high quality is one of the first things people notice about the Surf One Robert August II Complete.
The board’s quality can be seen in every facet of its design. For example, when you look at the board itself, you will see that it is coated with different hues and shades of red. This gives the board a sleek look that is perfect for the average rider who was not looking to make an overwhelming statement with their board.
At 43.75 inches by 8.87 inches, the board is a good length for beginners. The longer decking size is going to provide stability at high speeds, and the fact that the deck is on the wide side provides a good foothold for riders.
Seven ply Maple construction means that the board is going to be strong enough to stand up to a lot of wear and tear. However, it is going to have a good flex that is essential if you are going to enjoy the ride and easy carving.
This board’s sturdy construction makes it perfect for heavier riders. One of the concerns that heavier riders might have is that the board might snap underneath them when they are doing some outlandish tricks. This is not a problem with this board.
Randall R – 11 180 millimeters longboard trucks and a reverse kingpin on the trucks add to the stability of the Surf One Robert August II Complete. The quality of these trucks comes to the fore when the rider is attempting to make sharp turns.
The wheels on the board are Surf One five-star wheels. They help maintain the consistency of the ride even when the rider is traveling at high speeds or on flat land. The ABEC – 5 bearings guarantee that minimal effort is required to propel the board and to keep it running smoothly.
Anyone who objectively looks at the Surf One Robert August II Complete realizes that they are getting a good board that is made of high quality materials, that is attractively designed and that sells for an inexpensive price.
