if your a beginner then theres not point getting a super amazing board you might as well settle for a £60 deck you can get them from www.routeone.co.uk if you live in the Uk

Bearings-wise try looking for ABEC-5 Bearings. They're some of the smoothest available and mean you can ride faster.

That all depends on what you want from it. I recommend that you check out this site to find exactly what you want.

looks good, but the wheels look plastic. after you start, you should invest in wheels. tell me how your first session is!

okay , sorry they just looked like those wheels you get from walmart, all plastic and stuff. they are probably urethane though, most skateboard wheels are since the dogtown z boy era.good luck!

hey danny i already have a skateboard, and i gota tell you that you must, really, MUST get bearings for it. if you wont, it will be very slow and clumsy. i think that ABEC 6 or more would be good.
