Building on the all-time popularity of the CR-3 the “mini” was developed as a versatile mid-range board. This board performs with all the great aspect of the CR-3 but adds quickness and ease to all maneuvers. If you ride a longboard but want a step down without a bunch of loss then the mini could do the trick. This model also serves as a great beginner transitional board and works awesome as a functional longboard for Kids and Ladies. This is simply a FUN board. Great addition to any quiver and good for a lifetime (as long it lasts) of enjoyment.
