    Question Stable Downhill Board (small budget)

    I need a good board for downhill and i am pretty scared of speed wobble. I have a sec. 9 bambino and a paradise longboard i got on amazon(when i knew nothing ). I might sell those and have maybe $20 extra. What would be a good, stable, downhill board, around $220. I was looking at the Landyachtz Evo, but im no pro. Any suggestions?

    MileHighSkates has some complete EarthWing Supermodels in. They're all around 200 dollars which is basically in your budget.

    That being said, the rider is more important than the board. There are photos of at least one homeboy going down maryhill on a slalom deck.

    You just need a long low deck and some decent wide trucks.

    There was a post some time ago about board set-ups on the cheap, but I can't find it and it's been a while.

    I would think the demonseed is better and i would consider it if it wasn't so expensive.

    Find yourself a Earthwing 42" MysteryModel. or a EW 38" Boomerang if you want something a little shorter. With a little effort, you can find them for $100-$120.

    earthwing mystery model is the stiffest board I've ever ridden. VERY stable.
    I have a bunch of skateboards

    Isn't this what you're supposed to put in a signature?

    I prefer the bombhills or goddess of speed. Sector 9 rocks. Dont let people fool you. You can chop them down or ride them as is. Great decks for DH or just riding around.

    get a used evo. they'll never break anyway so just save a few bucks and get one that's pre-loved.

    and for the record don't make that thread. the silverfish trend-wagon will crush your spirits.

    Wobbles are less board, and more ability. Any nice, stiff board would work just fine, but you need to practice and not be afraid of wobbles.

    really? cause to be perfectly honest, the evo is a whole lot easier to go fast on than other boards.

    Wobbles depend on the rider, but a lower center of gravity makes for an easier balance. Check out the Comet FSM Drop Spaghetti Monster on daddiesboardshop.com

    Drop through boards are more stable than top mounted boards.
    I have never ridin this board, but by the looks of it, it'll be pretty stable because of it's wheelbase and stiffness.
