For cruising you would want something that is low to the ground so it doesnt wear you out as quick. I have a sector 9 carbon trylam.
Its flexy but still sick for steep hills. It has pretty big risers therefore there are better cruiser boards. I would get something in the 38inch range.

Thread: Long(skate)board recommendations
i am on relocating soon and looking to lighten my quiver a touch...
i have a carveboard for sale if anyone is interested
these boards shred hills like a surfboard!
it is in excellent condition, it's the 43" model with under 200lb flex, i did not like the blue color so i took it down to wood grain, gloss clear coat and regripped the entire top
Check out this company called Riviera. They are really sick and pretty reasonably priced. You can prolly most likely find them online at amazon.com or at a local skateshop possibly. Here's the website if you wanna check em out...... http://www.rivieralongboards.com/

Post that in this forum below and it will sell quick on the east coast man... use this:
Its a forum for "LandSurfers" who ride both dirt and street. You should be able to sell your board there pretty quickly, a good amount of those guys are located on the east coast.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for all the ideas guys. That freebord is f-ing awesome! I guess I should have originally specified though that I mainly want something for transportation and cruising. I'm not going to be riding hills or doing many tricks. I just want something that I can do big turns on while getting from point A to point B. There is definitely some cool stuff out there though.

Whiskey Militia. They put up deals on longboards every now and again. The boards might not be the "best", but you may just find one that fits your needs.
sounds like original is the company you are looking for.
they have trucks that don't ride like any other, and are comparable to loaded boards but much cheaper. on flat ground you can pump for miles without pushing. also really easy to slash
i have the apex 34 with s8 trucks. they are based out of NJ too, cool guys. they all surf.

Dont get a freeboard...who wants to have their feet strapped in. Also, look at gravity boards. The carve 39 is what i ride...im 6ft 190. It is the most surfy skateboard i have ever ridden. Also, if you go with a longer deck you can spread out your stance just like your on your surfboard. Just something to think about.
