so i have a longboard of my own, i picked it up at the local shop, and i absolutely love it but this was when i was first starting to surf about five or six years ago and i never really researched the product. so a friend of mine approached me at school asking what brand longboard he should get, a handshaped on, no pop-out's allowed, and i drew a blank, so i told him i'd put in a post on swellinfo. i need some help, any solid brands?
