as a beginner a board is a board. I used my brothers old beat up board to start with. Just make sure its wide/long enough. At this point it doesn't really matter. Go cheap. I'd just get a powell mini-logo. thats what I still skate. They are fine boards and cheap. My whole set up was like 60 bucks.

yeah start cheap then whenever you get a little better get a kind of board that you want to fit in with. for instance , vert- birdhouse - element, street - zero - almost ext.
dont worry about what the decal is on the board, the stabability of it is what matters!

yes it does, the better your board, the easier it is for you to learn, BUY ALIEN WORKSHOP, WITH DESTRUCTO TRUCKS AND HABITAT WHEELS, my sig and profile picture tell you the good way to make a board

To be honest, I just bought a Wiseguy board from a friend who moved a few years ago. It's not too bad... although it does need a bit of work. But I agree with all the other people that say as a beginner, go cheap and a board is a board. That is very true. Buy what suits you. It also depends on what kind of tricks your planning on doing. If you're going to be a vert skater, go with bigger (wider and longer) board. If you are doing street skating, go with a smaller (narrower and shorter) board. I do like Darkstar and Element. They are good for a guy like me...

Well, it depends on what you want in a board. There are a lot of people that either like Element, or just wanna be Bam Margera. Either way, I say go with what feels good under your feet. I personally like Darkstar.... like I said before.
