Default Longboards

I have a Arbor (yes the snowboard guys) Axis 'Koa' wood board. Drop-through gullwing charger trucks so it has a lower center of gravity - more akin to snowboarding, 72mm wheels which are big enough to comfortable ride over most urban surfaces. It's a flat board tho- no tail or tip so you don't olly it- definitely a cruiser/carver. 40" long, 30" wheelbase. Pretty stiff board, so it'll transfer a lot of road-noise to your feet.

It works PERFECT for what I use it (flatland cruising and touring the area) around Tampa Bay.

Picked it up for about $200 + Bones bearings + tax. Get good skate-rated bearings - they help.
