    Also look for something not too big. I know I wouldn't want to ride a Demonseed if I was 5'4 and 100 pounds. Of course, that too can be done...

    Perhaps something around 35-36 inches or so. See if you can get to try some different boards to get a feel for what you like.
    You never slow down, you never grow old.

    Go fast.

    start with this....

    Freeride wheels....most of them are round lipped (though not all) slippery thane is better than sticky thane in a "freeride shape"
    Trucks ....precision is not required Indy's are a choice but if you aren't used to them going fast can be an issue. just about any cast 50º RKP truck will be fine
    Board....most people will tell you that symmetrical is a must, for the most part they are right, not to say that you can't freeride a directional board but I never pay attention to which end is forward on my freeride boards its just one less thing to think about. All things being equal Double drops slide the easiest but are the hardest to have hold a line in a corner. Big drops feel similar to DD with a little more traction. Microdrops and drop throughs grip/slide about the same its really a question of whether you wants bars to lock your feet in Micro drops are usually stronger (no hole) and it can be easier to use the nose/tail because you aren't standing on the truck. Dropthoughs are usually more common and you will have a wider variety. Topmounts are probably the hardest to slide, least forgiving and certainly require the most control. I know that I am not comfortable freeriding on a topmount. But that's me YMMV

    LOL totes dude loaded is GREAT for freeriding. Set that derv up with some Original S8's and no joke you could go like 20 MPH with no wobs!!!!!!!!

    Landyachtz Drop Speed, or the Switch 37, both gnarly and amazing boards.

    Go for the fro pick. I got mine a few weeks ago and i love it. Its got great kicks, the concave is great to lock your feet in for slides, and the gas pedals are sick.
