I've been riding a Rossi Circuit for about a year. When comparing it to a rental you'll love it, but if you progress fast you'll want something quite a bit better. When you get up to high speeds the board chatters a lot, and it's really soft (which is cool if you are going to be attempting a lot of park runs, but not so much if you're more of a freerider). Depending on how much you're spending on rentals you might want to wait a while, and buy a better board once you progress to more of an intermediate rider. Just my two cents.
