Pros and Cons of the Santa Cruz Screaming Foot Skateboard
The first thing you are going to notice about the Santa Cruz Screaming Foot Skateboard is the fact that it is shaped like a giant foot. This is not your typical skateboard, as you can tell. It seems very odd and unintuitive to make a skateboard in such an unusual shape, and it is hard to imagine that it could possibly ride and handle like a regular skateboard, but it does. This is a very long board, measuring 32 inches long. So don’t expect to be doing all sorts of crazy tricks on this bad boy. However, for cruising around town or campus, the Santa Cruz Screaming Foot Skateboard is ideal.
The Bullet trucks are top notch, and easily adjustable to suit your personal riding preference and the bearings are smooth and give you a super fast ride. Santa Cruz Skateboards really went all out on the hardware on this one. The 60mm wheels are large, but not too large, which while it might make navigating rough terrain more difficult than on other cruisers that Santa Cruise Skateboards makes, still provides you with a nice ride. The focus with the Santa Cruz Screaming Foot is speed and to make sure you stand out from the crowd, which you definitely will riding around on a giant foot.
The graphics are also top notch on this board. The incredibly detailed graphics are almost nice enough to make you consider not even riding it at all, just putting it up on display and then purchasing one of the other offerings from Santa Cruz Skateboards to actually ride around on.
Because of the odd shape, it will take you some time to adjust to riding the Santa Cruz Screaming Foot Skateboard, but once you do it will function and feel just like a regular deck. That said, this might not be the best choice for complete novices, as eye catching as it is.
