I'm new to longboarding, not skateboarding, live in Florida and am looking to get a longboard to mainly cruise and carve the neighborhood as well as something that will also help me stay in shape for snowboarding. From the research I've done I think I've narrowed it down to a few different boards and am looking to get some feedback on each of them as to which will best fill what I'm looking for. Below are the ones I'm looking at getting, as well as the setups I was looking at for them, any other suggestions let me know.
Original Custom 35 (Looks awesome, but pricey. Is it worth it?)
Setup: S8's, Retro Zig Zags Red, Reds/Super Reds
Never Summer Norad,or Swift (Have read it closely mimics snowboarding?)
Setup: As sold at Daddies
Arbor Fish-Koa, or Bamboo (Concerned about being stiff and carving on flatground)
Setup: Randal 150's, Danos 70 blues, Reds/Super Reds.
