Review Summary:

Longboarding is a fun thing to do. No matter what your age or occupation. It is tough to choose a longboard that satisfies all the needs of different longboard styles. It is even harder to make a longboard that does so. However, Atom Longboards managed this unfathomable task with some oomph in the new Atom Drop through Longboard. It has the length that you would ideally want. The lightness, the angle of reverse kingpins as well as the strength and flex in its deck. Concave and width of the deck complete the check box test for this longboard.
