I'm a huge fan of original longboards. originalskateboards.com and their board known as the maven. 35 inches. I got to ride one of these and they ARE SO AWESOME. great for downhill and break in to slides with ease. and believe it or not I found that some of the best wheels to slide with (in my own experience) are abec 11 gumballs, which is weird but they have better slides then the butterballs I used to have and slide better then the slide wheels by "these" even though they aren't really made for it.
