i would go for the earthwing. not so pricey but will give you almost the same discipline in longboarding.
i tried to contact the landline of skate of the nation but the line is busted, i might try to personally visit the shop.

a classic pintail looks like a rocket ship or like a tear drop. the head of the board has more foot space than its other end.

well when you say loaded, its made of bamboo, meaning these boards are really flexy. the flex of the board determines how you carve the board when you are cruising.

there are 6 different kinds of loaded boards

1. dervish - all around board, good for cruising, freestyle, can go downhill, and also a good sliding board

2. vanguard - almost the same as the dervish but the vanguard is not a drop wedge, its a top-mount deck

3. fish - a shorter board, meaning a good commuter board, and its good for freestyling. most of the skateboarders there would prefer this one because of it has a nice tail.

4. ceviche - i believe this is a bit longer than the fish so its has the same discipline as of the fish but i like this one better because its has no foam in the tail

5. pintail - for me this is a good board for girls because its not that long compared to dervish but it has a nice tail wherein you can just pop it up and do some grab and throw tricks. its a good carver as well.

6. dancer - this board would be the longest of them all. it is built mainly for dancing (cross-steps, peter pans and what not)
this board has an ample nose and tail as well.

hope this helps. :)

i tried to contact the landline of skate of the nation but the line is busted, i might try to personally visit the shop.

might as well visit the shop. just go there around 6pm onwards because the owners of the store usually go there around that time. just look for BOJ (he knows a lot things in longboarding).

of course. when we speak of weight (of the deck) the heavier = more speed in downhilling.

but if you notice with loaded boards, a dervish perce has a different kinds of flexes. a flex of a board pertains to the weight of the person it can carry.

flex 1 = 90 to 140lbs

flex 2 = 141 to 190lbs

flex 3 = 191lbs and above

Last May, na aksidente ako sa longboard... downhill ako nun then huminto yung board ko sa bato (maliit lang), tpos tilapon ako... una nag land yung right-side ng body ko... sympre, bigalng tayo agad ako, then feel ko pilay yung right elbow ko, the pa check up and x ray agad ako... feel ko kase masama yung tama ko...then yung kita sa xray ko na may crack yung head ng buto ko katabi ng elbow ko.... need lagyan ng SCREWS (2pcs)
then operation comes along... so on.... almost 2 months ako naka leave sa work and sa banda ko.... accident happens anytime kaya dapat ready tayo...kung pede invest tayo sa helmets and pads,etc... :-)

gusto ko din ito, nung unang time na napanood ko 'to sa tv sa isang documentary talagang nagulantang ako, napaka cool at mukhang maeexercise ka talaga. 

magkano ba all in all magagastos mo para sa ganitong hobby, yung pinakamura na niya, magkano po kaya, minus the protective gear dahil may protective gear na ako kasi im also into circuit racing.

ts3x... could never go wrong with a dervish... mind if i ask, what's your weight in lbs? the dervish has different flexes for each weight class....

heads up to INCREASE GAS! :-o

Here are longboard decks made by JONATHAN DELA CRUZ of ELEGEE GUITARS.
These are made with 1 piece maple.
The natural one is mine and the colorful one is Jon's.
As you can see, the natural board has some bird's eye and flamed maple on it.
 











This is how mine looks when assembled.
