Hey. yeah, i'm new at this skateboard thing. i bought just like a cheap run of the mill board to learn on. But once i get alright at riding i'd like ya know...a nice one. SO i was wondering...should i get a long board or short? fat, skinny? w/e how big should my wheels be? should i have low trucks? idk man. like idk if any of this is important but... i am around 5'6'' and weight from 100-105. i am not planning on any vert or anything ya know. I'll be sticking to the street. I dont want to waste my money..,.so can someone give me a hand with this info? thanx man.

i would say a flip deck or normal pro deck not long the width u need 2 determine urself wut feels comfortable most people use 7.5 and 7.75
ricta or spitfire wheels 52-54 are good for street i like 53
royal trucks lows

this is what i personally like and use so oother people might have a differint opinion

Deck: Go with just a blank cuz they are the same as any other boards just cheaper...or a lib tech(the strongest board in the world) Go with a 7.50 or 7.25
Wheels:Dont go with spitfire...alot of posers ride em...go with Ghetto Child 52 mm
Trux:Silver or grindking
Bearings:Black panther
