Hey Guys. Can anyone recomend a decent skateboard for street skating? I haven't skated since I was a kid pushing around a NASH board in the '80s. Want to see if I could pick the sport up and do a few tricks, and maybe hit a park around town if I can hack it. I think it would be some good dryland practice for wakeskating. I have no idea what good boards are these days. Pretty much just want something with a kicktail and some grip tape. Would like to spend less than $150 for the deck/trucks/wheels combo if possible. Any board suggestions would be appreciated. Oh, I'm 5'10 and 150 lbs. Not sure if body size matters for street skates. Thanks.

CCS, get a blank complete really cheap. <BR><a href="http://shop.ccs.com/item.do?categoryID=39&amp;itemID=2946&amp;sizeFilt er=&amp;colorFilter=&amp;brandFilter=0089" target="_blank">http://shop.ccs.com/item.do?categoryID=39&amp;itemID=2946&amp;sizeFilt er=&amp;colorFilter=&amp;brandFilter=0089</a>

Thanks for the link, Adam. $70, including shipping, for a complete board looks like a great deal. Not sure what size deck and wheels to get, but I think I'll just ask someone in a local skate shop what they say, then get the board online.

Thats a good choice I only deal with CCS and they are good, once you buy stuff from them you get a CCS catalog every month.
