    you should look up a local skateshop that sells these kind of things. not familiar with whichever neighborhood you're in, but i'd say look for an element skateboard or K2 / kryptonics if your region has those. element should be available worldwide though. i believe you can get a nice ride for round 60-70 bucks. dunno the prices in usa ( i reckon its usa)
