Noobie help please!

Hi Guys,
I am 5 foot 10 (178cm) 16.5 stones (105kg) and have size 12 feet. I bought a cheap pintail (104cm) from amazon before christmas, and have been riding virtually every day. I think the time has come to buy a proper set up. I live in Menorca, and there is no skateshop stocking longboards, so i guess i am going to buy online, and i want to make sure i buy the right board, as i cant try out any different styles.

I mainly ride on inclines, not majorly steep, (current top speed 39 kph). I enjoy carving, and would love to start sliding. What size board would you recommend for my build? Wheels? bushings and bearings? I guess my max budget would be 300 pounds, but would love to spend less! :)

thanks for your time

Dan

Google "silverfish lordy lordy 40". Silverfish forum is THE longboard forum .

I'm not an expert on this. But I think Liam Morgans deck looks nice. Cast Ronin trucks is da shit. And for wheels, orangatang would be a safe choice.
