New to long boarding, started out with a cheap board from Amazon and quickly realized I needed something better. After hours of research I landed on the Zenit AB 3.0. This is an amazing board. My setup is the AB 3.0 with the 165MM Paris V3 50 on both ends paired with the Orangatang Kegel and Orangatang Purple Nipples. You need to set the trucks on the outer set of screws to avoid minor wheel bite. The speed, smooth ride, and stability make this an amazing long board. The quality and craftsmanship is unreal. You can tell care was put into this board. I am huge fan of Zenit and will recommend them to everyone I know looking for quality long boards.
I've been longboarding for over a decade now so I've tried all kinds of boards, from pintails to cruisers to drop boogy boards and this board has to be my favorite thus far. I wasn't expecting much from this board besides its weightlessness, but the way its designed is amazing. From the ever so slight taper that's hardly noticeable to the concave, it's all precision. I've switched the trucks and wheels I originally got with the board (caliber iii 169mm and 90mm zenit wheels) for my 180 x-caliber Madrid pro's and 70mm shark wheels and I have slightly better stability and control. Overall, great product. Will buy again.
Thanks for the love, Tyler! This one will definitely last you a while.
Really appreciate how stable and easy to push the AB 3.0 is. I’m having a blast
Thanks, Nicholas. We're sure you'll be having a blast for a Long time!

It only took me 30min of riding to fall in love with the board. The flex is on point (dampers rough pavement without feeling too flexy when pushing), stability is stellar (with 180mm RKPs) and the super low platform makes it really effortless to push. It's also super nimble and it feels like it would slide smoothly with freeride wheels. Such an upgrade from my good old Landyachtz. I just can't stop riding!
