Ill check that out, thanks.
As for longboards, most purchases will happen online, since longboarding is mostly crap in stores.
Mile High Skates
First board is really nice, the Earthwing superglider, for beginners to experts. The guy who runs the shop really knows his stuff and sets the boards up with the right components. This board is actually on my list next. (Board #4 lol) It's got a kicktail (like that of a skateboard) and a bit of flex.
Second board is from a custom builder, less known. He makes some quality boards, different style, more of a carving deck, has nice flex to it. You can add a layer of glass on the bottem to stiffen it up if you don't want so much flex. If you do go with this board, get the scimitar, an upgraded M1 basically. You can choose the length, im nearly 6' also, and I like a 40-42" board.
These are only two of many boards, two that stood out to me. Of these two, I'd go for the Earthwing superglider (as you can see i'm buying one.
) The advantage of the krackedskulls is the length option. The Earthwing is 38", where the scimitar ranges from 38-46".
Hope this helps. If you are looking for more information, Silverfishlongboarding . com is the place to go. It's the same forum style as this, longboarding style.
