    i weight 160 and have size 11 feet i want a board for commuting but handle a bit of dh sometimes carving and bombing but no big hills. also something i could maybe learn a few tricks on to impress some ppl haha.
    So im picken between earthwing supercharger with suggested trucks and whells
    and the never summer norad with 180 mm trucks and suggested wheels. Which one do you think would suit me better this my first board i need an all all-arounder sort of Thanks.

    My vote is for the Supercharger.

    If you go with the Norad I would suggest 150-160mm trucks.

    It better matches the width of the deck, more nimble.

    Hard to go wrong with Indy 215's for the Supermodel, Hybrids (Core baseplates) if you wish to run taller bushings.

    The Supermodel was produced in 38" and 40" in 8 ply and 9 ply versions. Most are sold out, but there are a few 40" 9 ply model available at various shops. It is stiff, flex can be overrated.

    The Supercharger would be a fine choice and will have a bit of flex.

    It doesn't. It is a bit of personal preference...he may have been using a sideset wheel which increases the track width..?

    1/2" risers with Indy 215's should allow most 70mm wheels on the longest wheelbase.

    Paris trucks are taller, so maybe 1/4" riser.

    There are many fine 66mm wheels worth checking out as well.
