carve / longboard
I want to get a carve board like this one
Carve Board - Home
but it's pretty expensive, so I was thinking about a standard longboard to keep carving on asphalt this summer.
Any tips on what's best? brands, things to look for, specs and so...

i have a sector 9 longboard. its a very popular brand as far as longboards go.

just get one thats got the best feel to it as far as size and stuff goes. its all preference.

i have a sector 9 goddess of speed w/ randall 180 trux...i think 76mm wheels, the bigger the wheel the higher your top speed but lower acceleration.,thats all i really know about it, and that its got a concave deck so you can really get on your "edge"

Ok! I'll check those then. And get some knee-elbow pads, Asphalt looks way harder than powder ;)
The carve board looks pretty cool..but costs like a good snowboard...
Where do you usually ride it?

Silverfish Longboarding - The Longboard Skateboard Community - Front Page is an awsome place to go looking for info there! As for stuff to look at, check out the Loaded Dervish/Vanguard, Rayne Hustler, get something custom made by users Loki440 or Mc99David. I'm using the "Wannabe" by Loki440 right now and it is such a fun ride. There's also the company Landyachtz as well. There are tons of options out there and I'd list some stuff off, but my brain is still half asleep...

I LOVE My Carveboard

hum...I see the power kite as a natural progression...since I've been flying stunt dual lines kites forever.
kite-surf looks very attractive too, as does speedriding... many little time (and money)
