Love the board, got me in bowls for the first time… but now I can’t find spare parts. How do I get them? Would recommend if I could find spare parts.
This is a great introduction to surfskate but maybe just too low quality for the trucks. After a few days of use the front bush keeps coming out of its housing. If this didn't happen I'd easily give it four stars as it does definitely work well as a surfskate. I'd definitely recommend it for flat but probably not for skating bowls.
Great for pumping and carving both on flat ground as well as on tracks. Really fun to ride, great workout, even better price. Only suggestion for improvement would be a more resistant clear sand grip on the board and a back pad with better grip. The sand has come off where my front foot sits, and my back foot hasn’t yet slipped off the back pad but I’m hesitant to put too much pressure on it as it does not grip to a high degree when slightly dusty. Nonetheless, great board!
I am a beginner/intermediate surfer so was looking for good on land training. This board is prefect for those just starting out with surfing and surf skating. A lot more affordable that the alternatives but definitely gets the job done!
Really good competitively priced surf skate
I bought this surf skate few weeks ago, and I love it. I really enjoy carving with it and to be fair it looks beautiful. The only thing is that the rear pad doesn't grip that much and my foot sometimes slip when snapping or trying some more aggressive turns pushing with the back foot. Is there any way that I could replace this this pad with something more grippy? I think having the same finish as the rest of the board would be actually better. Apart from that, this is a great product for the price.
Overall Oxelo Carve 540 is one great surfskate that has long wheelbase and nice design. But I've to be honest and put it out there that...due to bad design that makes the front bushing (rubber bearing) broke in 2 weeks. 1. It's from the rubber bearing is too soft for my weight (86 kg.) 2. The cup bearing is too shallow so when the rubber is being pushed against, the bearing cuts it. Suggestion 1. Offer, or sell as spare part for the rubber bearing the comes with various hardness. I prefer 92 - 93a for my weight ratio 2. redesign that one little cup bearing (the one at is almost at the end by the last nut.) Other than that....this is one great surfskate you can afford!
Excellent for the price. It’s responsive, smooth and stable. Nice and tall with plenty of tilt.
The best so far
Five Stars for sure
Great carve surf skate
Bought this as an alternative to Carver and Smoothstar boards. Is it as good? No idea, I haven't used one. Is it good? Sure is. Definitely feels like surfing turns and is proving really helpful in surf drills. Great practice for pumping and carving. Very glad I bought it.
My Review on YouTube I think had a role in making this board so popular. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqgCDFTxBBc I wrote my review because I had no idea what to expect and the board really surpassed my expectation given what I paid. Definitely 5/5 for value, but one star removed because it will not match a high end surfskate in quality and the design will somewhat limit more advanced riding. Check out the video for more on my thoughts about the board, but I am writing to say that I hope Decathlon on working on a more intermediate version after the popularity of this one for those riders who learned using this board and are ready to step up into surfskating in skateparks. I'd be happy to share some ideas so feel free to reach out if you'd like.
The value for the price here is akin to Decathalon products. I've ridden carvers, waterbornes, and other surfskates and this board holds up to any of them for the main manufacturers that are far more expensive. I have not hit any drawbacks yet. If you are looking for a board that will get you into surfskating without compromising on performance get this. I have only tried it instore and on flatland so far, though there are youtube video reviews that go into depth of the great all around performance.
Hello Matthew, and thank you for taking the time to leave this review on our Longboard Carve 540 Bird. It is extremely useful feedback, and we hope you enjoy your upcoming longboard adventures!
Trucks does provide a smooth pumping action, able to pick up speed with a few pumps. Wheels, personally i would switch to a softer wheels for Hong Kong's bumpy pavement surface. Board, abit heavier than usual, however is good that they provide extra grip on the tail for the slide maneuvers.

Carving longboards let you move forwards by pumping, i.e. without putting your feet on the ground. The board picks up speed as it angles. And with more pronounced trucks, this longboard lets you carve your turns by pushing hard on the edges. Doing so feels like surfing, and you can imitate certain tricks such as cutbacks.
