    I'm getting a skateboard, and I have a few questions.

    Firstly what brands are good to buy? Since I'm a newbie to this stuff I don't want a real flash one - planning to spend about £20 at most on one.

    Also what size? I've been looking around and a 31 inch board seems pretty average.

    Thanks

    Don't expect a £20 board to last very long.

    Best brands are element and almost although they're the most expensive ones too, birdhouse is a pretty good mid range priced brand. Wouldn't be able to advise you on cheaper brands since I haven't bought them.
    Check skatehut.co.uk to find some cheaper boards.
    Good luck!

    It's only really to see if I like it, and if I can get the hang of it - if I really enjoy it I'll look to buy a better one

    I'll have a look at that site. Thanks
