Why won t my new skateboard ride fast or continuously?

I recently got a new skateboard that has a 7.5 deck, ABEC 7 bearings and 53 mm wheels, but as soon as I start riding it and give it a few pushes, it stops really quickly and when I spin the wheels, they stop after 3 seconds or so. What s going on?

    Loosen up the wheel nuts. Many new skateboards have the nuts tightened too tight. Loosen up the nuts until the wheels spin freely.
