BUSTIN! that's all I can say, I got myself a strike and it is great for everything, kracked skulls from what I have heard is good, loaded is amazing, I would definitely check those out, sector nines are not worth spending your time on, earthwing's seem tight, and Arbor is also really fun, oh and how could I forget about Landyachtz, those are pretty quality and made in canada.
For wheels I would definitely go with orangatang 4presidents or anything orangatang really.
for trucks I would go with randall's they hold up really well, I have those on all my boards, I have heard good things about paris also.
bearings go for your classic bones super reds, very fast, surprisingly fast actually.
hardware don't really matter, just get ur skateshops stock hardware
Hope this helps! Whatever you get you're def gonna have alot of fun, cuz longboarding is the greatest!!!!
