id go gravity, they have such a good verity, for you being new id look at like a carve or hyper carve, or the spoon nose. My friend has the Hyper carve, i have riden it and i like it alot, the spoon noses shape is like my first one but i got a Dregs L1, now I have a Dregs SuperTanker (so long). What do you plan on doing, if its big slides and such, these are probably not for you, the boards i wrote about are more slalomn, carving, or just cruising around.

Dreg's site- www.dregsskateboards.com
I would look at dregs just to see the other boards i was talking about
Hope what ever one you choose, is one that you like
