I'm looking for a versatile, fun, longboardy-longboard.
I also skate regularly, so I don't need this BS about "freestyle" and doing tricks with a longboard, because if i want to do a kickflip.. I'll use my skateboard.
I want one that's good for doing DH, but i'm mostly going to be carving, cruising, pumping, and maybe I'll get into sliding.
I'm probably going to end up putting Paris 180's on whatever board I get, so this is just about the board, the trucks are a constant. (unless certain trucks are highly recommended for the board). And then i'll decide about wheels and bearings and such.
what I've thought about as choices are as follows, and I'd like some honest opinion about each board.
I'll give karma and shenanigans to people who offer legit, non-asshole-y answers. And I don't want any longboard/skateboard hate.
-Apex 37(probably carbon fiber hottness version, if i can work up enough money.)
-Bustin Maestro 38(hopefully fiberglass version [again]
-Loaded Tan Tien 39
