I'm getting a Longboard, I've never owned one myself, but I've used my buddies one quite a bit (more than him to be honest) and I absolutely love longboarding.

I'm just looking for some advice on what to look for in a good longboard, and good brands. I've heard that the mainstay of boards around where I live is "Sector 9" and that they're pretty good. I'm not looking for one thats absolutely amazing, just a decent one, the board I'm looking at is a sector 9 and its around 239$ I think, the trucks feel pretty sturdy on it and the bearings are nice.

Anything else I should be looking for in a good board or any other good brands?

thanks in advance and when I get it I'll post a video of a sick cruise on it
