Alright so my friend wants a longboard , she has recently been riding my landyacht . She likes the feel of cruising , but she eventually wants to learn how to do other things like downhill,free ride, dancing. We have been talking about the loaded tesseract because it's good for all around purposes. Her price limit is about $300, idk if we should get a good deck with stock bearings/wheels etc.. Or an alright deck with great bearings/wheels etc.. What is better ? Open to what you Guys think.

get a bustin and done lol not to expensive and good boards
@steezus I forgot to mention that she wants a drop though . And she is really passionate about longboarding. She wants to learn one thing at a time . But i know she really would practice . @michaelnieves I don't think she is that type of person, she rides mine everyday and she can't get enough . So do you still think she shouldn't get a nice board because she probably will use it all the time
@shanker666 Well it's really up to her. We can give suggestions, but it's up to her what she wants to do with her money. Another option is to buy a really nice deck and some basic wheels and trucks then slowly upgrade as she progresses. My first board when I started was some random board I bought off of Amazon. I just bought a regular set of bear grizzly 852, some sector 9 wheels and some sketchy abec 9 bearings. I started off with the back hanger flipped and the front unflipped to learn how to carve. Then I got more comfortable, then had both trucks unflipped, got comfortable with that and picked up some 50 calibers, then eventually 44 calibers, etc. I got a few new boards over time and it was great to learn. You don't need an expensive board/set up to learn and have fun.
@shanker666 a Landyachtz switchblade is good for freeride, downhill, and VERY LIGHT dancing. It's also a drop through, so that may be right up her alley.
get something that'll meet her needs and won't burn her wallet. she's on her first board. she might decide that she wants to bmx in 2 months for all you know and the board if just gonna be sitting there without any use
