get the birdhouse deck. much better than blind. blind is durable but has no pop and is real heavy to me. but i say you save up a little more cash so you can get a plan b board. plan b makes the best boards any where. they have great pop and they last a really long time. and dont buy complete buy trucks, wheels, and bearing seperatly, never in a complete.
good luck skating. try not to do board slides on the birdhouse if u buy it. that's how three of my boards snap-eddd!
i had 5 boards in the first year that i skated. i''m on my fifth, a plan b that works great. my element was great too but it snapped in 3 weeks! it made me so mad dont buy element!
i skate everyday for hours at the skate park, most of the time none stop. it depends if i fall or not , bearlly fall at all any more.
