Hey! I’m looking for a carving/cruising longboard just for cruising around town. I would preferably like a double kingpin and a dropdeck. A kick tail would also be good too. Keep in mind I am a beginner but what would you reccomend?

I’m looking to buy a longboard that is easy to bring around, easy and smooth to ride, and I prefer drop through trucks cuz I don’t wanna have to bend down as much.
