Arbor Drop Cruiser GT Artist Collection Longboard
The Arbor Dropcruiser GT is an excellent choice of beginner longboard. Whether you're trying to inspire some confidence on the hills, or you just need something to get from school to home, the Dropcruiser has plenty of assets that will have you questioning why you would consider anything else.
This 38" 9 plies of maple sits quite comfortably with a 29 and a quarter inch wheelbase, meaning as long as you aren't bombing the absolute largest hills you can find you should find yourself almost riding on a cloud with its significantly lower center of gravity and ample foot space with an almost 10 inch width!
