There are different styles of boards. I have a Landyacht ( Canadian Made) and it's a carving board as it has a different truck set up which allows the board to turn sharper. The board also has a lot of flex to it. It's great at easy carving around but I can't bomb big hills on it as it will get speed wabble. My other deck is a Sector 9 which is a stiff cupped deck like any skate board just longer. It is better for the hills. I personally like the flex board by Landyacht.....others make a similar style deck.

Translation:

If you're talking longboard skateboarding check out www.silverfishlongboarding.com. They have some pretty informative forums on there. Just got my first board for christmas and built my 8 year old his first too - we're stoked for spring to try them out.

Beware the speed wobbles for they've taken many a layer of skin (and by that I mean take your time with progression and know what you're riding down and more importantly the various ways of stopping/slowing).

My son and I just got into longboarding. As has been mentioned already, take your time progressing. Learn the basics, like safety equipment, stopping, etc...etc... Stopping/slowing down is probably the most important thing to learn right off bat. It's saved me many a times when riding down some of the hills around my neighborhood. Check youtube for content. I use longboarding to help with my switch riding and balance. GL.
