    Default What Freestyle/Freeride longboard to get?

    I currently skate a Lush Kilima Archer which is drop through and have now started to pull of some basic tricks such as Tiger Claws and general caveman style tricks.

    But with my drop through Kilima, I've noticed large cracks at the tip and tale of my board and today a section of the board has detached. I have enough to buy a new deck but I cant decide on what to go for!

    I've looked at:
    1. Loaded Tan Tien but I don't want the same cracks to occur on this drop though deck.
    2. Apex 37 (2011) since its very durable and strong but it has no kick tail so tricks may be difficult.
    3. LongboardLarry DK Penguin for the tails and is it less likely to crack with a top mount?

    Please give your thoughts on which I should get, if there any way of stopping pressure cracks on a drop though, and if there's another board which will suit my needs!

    Thanks

    The DK penguin or a vendetta. Shock pads or small risers help prevent pressure cracks

    Dont worry about the cracks on a new board, just learn to prevent them. Add some shock strips like this:



    I'd probably go with the double kick penguin. It seems to have everything you want. You could also go with the Earthwing Hightailer.

    i would have to say LBL double kick penguin since it is top mounted, dropped so its as low as a drop through, and has insanely awesome kicks

    lbl dk penguin forsure. if not that, than the vendetta. actually no vendetta. the vendetta is more of a strictly freeride board

    I want to go for the LBL DK Penguin but I can't find a website for the UK (I live in the UK) which sells the board and I don't want to have to pay £30-£50 to get it delivered from the US

    Well you might as well because us Americans have to pay $20 to get it shipped.

    I think it also has gas pedals built into the tail, so it'll function like the wolfshark
