    You cannot ride in sand or dirt b/c the tires are slicks i believe. The boardwalk is fine, and if there is a bit of sand on the there, practice your skidzzzz.

    The Soho S is a SS, can't do skidzzz (brakes don't count). Good thing is there's tons of room for oversize hybrid or semi-knobby tires.
