Depends on what style you're riding. I know my cousin's in japan are really into groundtricks.

So their ideal choice for boards are 011artistic, rice28 there are a couple more but can't remember the others. If you're a fan of it, defiantly check it out. they're on the expensive side anywhere from 400 to 800 bucks. if you're into jibs and jumps like most people here in the states, stick with what we have here. I'm going to try to pick up a 011artistc board during the summer(if they have any left). hope this helps..
