I really like arbor boards. They're very well made, great boards to start off with if you're new, not overly expensive, and it's just a good all around feel good board. You can't go wrong with an Arbor board.
Their boards are well put together and feel pretty solid. I have the axis and I love it. Great board for someone that wants to take longboarding seriously or wants a cruiser that will last forever but can't drop a lot of cash.
