    Default Which cruiser board?

    Hey! I'm looking for a short cruiser board, between 29"-32", to commute around with.

    I have been checking out the sector 9 secrets, LY pocket Knife and Gravity Bamboo Mini.
    I would love to get any recommendations to which board I should choose or other suggestions!

    The Pocket Knife would be a great choice and its also relatively inexpensive. I dont know your height and weight but the set up it comes with from Landy would be good for you i think except with micro monsters wheels instead of street hawgs. Also if you wanna save some cash Indy 159s or 169s would be a great choice for trucks! I would also throw a quarter inch of riser on there and either Reds or zealous bearings. Any other questions?

    Socal SkateShop Board Builder
    With 66mm Lime Zigzags, Indy 129s, 1/8" Small Shock Pad, and Zealous Bearings. You won't be disappointed. ^.^

    Or if you want a slightly bigger board with a kick, get the EW Miniglider with a similar setup.

    EW Miniglider is a great option, I really liked mine. LY Dinghy also looks nice. Also check out the EW Frequent Flyer, Omen Mini Sugar and Santa Cruz Landshark (I actually really liked mine when I had it)

    LY ripple ridge.. Everything else worth noting has pretty much been mentioned already.
    Unless you can get your hands on a rayne mini, those are so rad.

    ^another good landy cruise board would be the loco 35. IMO it looks like it has potential for being versatile with flip tricks and tech sliding along with being a cruise board

    a mini glider is real hard to beat, great size for lots of skating and just enough tail to get your front end up when you need to.
