Hi, i've been wanting to get a board to get into sliding. I probably wont have enough money for about a year, but I want to start looking early. I also would like some suggestions on wheels for sliding? Thanks in advance!!

There are definitely wheels that make it easier to slide. There is something call durometer and it is designated by a number and the letter a, for example 80a or 82a. The higher the number, the harder the wheel, the easier the slide. For a specific set of wheels, go with something like Amber Freerides: https://www.muirskate.com/longboard/wheels/56041/72mm-ABEC-11-Limited-Edition-Amber-Thane-Offset-FreeRides-Longboard-Skateboard-Wheels.html
I ended up building my deck because I'm a carpenter, but I would definitely recommend arbor boards. They're not as expensive as loaded and they look great. I would go with same 83a orangatang stimulus' @AlexMooney
I would say most people tend to go with freeride shape with double kicks, often times with drop through mounting. Personally I prefer top mount trucks and a single kick tail, something like the arbiter kt.
listen to Steezus he is steezy
How much would you be willing to spend on wheels and a board?
