Is there anything wrong with buying this skateboard (first board)?

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_...

It is a cheap board, and it looks like it would be fine for a first time skater. 31 x 7.5 inches, 7 ply maple, 52mm wheels, and ABEC 5 bearings.

    Walmart boards tend to be deathtraps, made of really cheap and inforgiving materials.

    It's got Tony's name on it however, and assuming that it's an officially licensed product, it might have come from the Birdhouse woodshop, so yeah it could be ok but only for a first time board!
