So I have wrecked my skateboard beyond repair and want to get a longboard as I commute to school. I am thinking of the Sector 9 HALEIWA but have no clue about the "flex" of a longboard. I know that they are made in different flexes and the "ala moana" seems to be the successor of the haleiwa which I found is "medium flex". I am about 218lbs.

tl;dr: need a longboard that fits my weight (218lbs), will the Sector 9 HALEIWA work?

Yes, I do mean exactly that.



Yet, I recieve the obvious answer.

I don't go to my local skate shop because the nearest one is while away.

ill help you out. the flex should not be that huge of an issue in general on boards, some higher end boards tend to be more specific though. I personally just bought a bustin board which you can fully costumize and is the best board for the money i have ever ridden.

www.bustinboards.com

that board should work, but then again i only wiegh 140 so i do not know form experience. I have a heavier friend who bought a board that is specifically built for that. But with the bustin boards you can email them and a knowledgeable guy will personally respond which is very nice.

I highly recommend these boards as i bought a sector nine and then 6 months later bought a new board. They also have college commuter specific boards so that could be an option.

You weigh 218? Good grief.

Are you asking if midgets can draw people that are themselves smaller than the average person, or if midget drawings in general are smaller?

I hate the kids that ride longboards at my school. They are so cool, but those dastardly kids rule the awesomeness that is longboards.
