    Question what's the best website to buy a longboard?

    hi guys! i want to start longboarding! my friend told me that this is the best forum for longboarders so i decided to join. i've been looking at a whole bunch of reviews for some sweet boards (especially the flexy ones). now where online should i buy my board? i'm sure you guys know more than me. there are too many websites online. who can i trust? i'm a little sketch when it comes to buying things online too. which website do you recommend?

    thanks guys!

    MileHighSkates (I think this could be the best site for you; has some very affordable set-ups)

    DaddiesBoardShop

    LongboardSkater

    StokedSkateboards

    TheLongboardStore

    MuirSurf

    The above are good ones...

    Where's your location? It's possible you have a boardshop around the corner.

    Socal skateshop is also good. Mike Hirsch and his crew are very helpful and get stuff sent out quick.

    dadies is really good. bought some stuff and told them i had a race and needed to get used to the wheels by the weekend. sure enough the very next day they arrived along with a couple of dadies stickers. seeing how expensive longboarding is dadies is good because they have free shipiing ofver 25 dollars

    All of the sponsors here on the fish are reputable.

    Often times it can boil down to what you are looking for, different retailers carry different brands and products.

    i'm from san bernardino, that's near Los Angeles. i don't want to drive very far so that's why i would rather buy on the internet. i'm thinking of getting a flexy board, what do you guys think? i want to be able to cruise on it but also go downhill and carve later on. i hear flex decks arent that great. never summer and loaded are pretty solid it seems. thoughts?

    thanks for all the feedback!

    As far as I'm concerned, I bought from longboardskater.com and they were very very cool.

    Stoked Skateboards is easily one of my favorites

    although www.milehighskates.com is also a fantstic shop.
