I am looking for a longboard. Right now I am using an 8' Walden and its fine, but I am looking at going more old-school. I would like a log that I can noseride and just sort of swing around. I have seen some kookboxx's and scott anderson's but they are pretty expensive. Are longboards generally going to be up around $1000 or is there a smaller and/or cheaper company that I could buy a cheaper one from. I am 5'8" and 130lbs so I was thinking mid-eights range. Any suggestions or help is much appreciated.
