    Default Good Speed/Mild sliding board setup?

    I'm completely new to longboarding, but please acknowledge that I'm good at riding snowboards and skateboards, so do not recommend a "beginner board".
    Here is my setup below:

    Rayne Nemisis deck

    254mm gullwing charger downhill trucks

    83mm abec 11 flywheels

    bones reds bearings(and spacers)

    Not sure what else I need. My current neighborhood(moving in july) is relatively flat, with the exception of a few decent hills, so from what I heard, the setup above will roll a long distance without having to push very much. I might slide, or I might not, one thing I do know though is I like to go fast and hold that speed for a long distance. Any input or recommendations are appreciated.
    Thanks

    You don't need wheels that big. Also, don't get Gullwings. The nemesis is a great deck, but it is expensive. There are decks that are just as nice for less.

    Well, if you are looking for quality boards with slight drops, there are loads. To name a few
    -Bustin Ibach
    -Nelson Spindrift/Topspin
    -Landyachtz Switchblade/switchblade 36
    -Clutch Lambchop/Double Tap
    -Bombsquad Dragula

    The list goes on. Remember, most expensive does not mean best. Probably don't go any bigger than 76mm for wheels, and even that may be too big for some of those decks.

    What about a switchblade with bear 852's and flywheels, if so, should i get 76mm flywheels, or 83mm?

    lots of pushing? small hills? 72mm or less for wheels

    large wheels take a long time to reach top speed. Which means they might never reach top speed on your short hills.

    Good at skateboarding? "longboarding" is skateboarding, but skateboarding is not always longboarding.

    have you looked into tech sliding?
    Is your hill under 30mph? if yes, you can handle it on your shortboard. get some gloves and a helmet.

    Why stray away from truck geometry you are used to? get some wider indys.

    But from what I have seen, bigger wheels roll easier with less effort,so I can see where smaller wheels would reach top speed quicker, because their top speed is lower than the bigger wheels.

    Larger wheels takes more effort pushing to get them up to speed, and the top speed doesn't have an advantage until 40- 50mph+

    For a cheaper deck with a bit of drop you could try the micro drop supermodel? The drops are small,but lock you in for slides so well.also,with wheels wouldnt it be better looking for harder wheels than larger wheels,as ive always found harder wheels roll faster.although where i live theres a lot of good pavement. I'd possibly suggest something like the 82a 70mm bustin swifts? They roll fast,and grip quite well,but have a buttery slide
