The OSO review by California Bonzing CO. Review
The OSO is 38 inches long by 10.25 inches wide with a wheel base of 30.25 inches. It also sports some rad 5/8 inch concave. It’s constructed with extremely solid 9 ply maple. This thing is a beast when it comes to sliding. The deck is completely symmetrical, which I think is a true plus for any freeride board. CBC really stepped up their game with this board. Don’t get me wrong: I loved the STIJL, but the OSO is right up there with some of the nicest boards I’ve ever ridden. Sturdy, spacious, durable, and all around awesome. I am truly impressed with the newest CBC creation, and I’d totally suggest you to check it out.
Here are some of my favorite qualities of the OSO:
The specs of the board are superb. Just the right length. This makes it really easy to throw into slides and increase stability at higher speeds. The width is monster. The first time I picked up the board; I was surprised by just how wide it is. The concave really locks in your feet and feels super secure for any type of sliding.
Even at first look you can tell this board is well built. The guys at CBC really made a great product. It looks good, it feels good, and most importantly: It rides great.
There are two gnarly looking grizzly bears on the top and bottom of the deck. (So, the board looks completely dope with some clear grip). Also, OSO means bear in Spanish — yo quiero, you guys.
Austin Graziano says, “There is really only one word to describe this board—bonzing. The three of us got together, rocked out and had a great time. It captures the raw beauty of California and skateboarding. The sun and moon gave us a chance to play with the juxtaposition we find in our lives and also the balance skateboarding provides it.”
Words to live by.
I would definitely suggest checking out this board. At it’s price of just $99: it’s a complete no-brainer.
