What is a good longboard for a 5'6", 115 pound girl? I've been on the same board for...?

...4 years and need a new one.

I'm not so much picky as specific... The problem is that I know exactly what I want but I just don't know where to find it.

-I'd prefer a complete. Building is not my thing yet. Will take suggestions on wheels.

-Deck must be flex or flat (no concave or dips).

-36" would be perfect, or a little smaller or a tiny bit bigger if need be.

-love the look of Arbor boards but they just don't mesh with my riding style (the whole concave thing), but the look, yes, the look is great.

-$300 is approx. my top budget.

-Looking to cruise and carve (or at least make corners and not completely die on the few mild slopes I'll ever have to face). And PLEASE don't tell me that carving can't be done on flex or flat boards OR that hard wheels are no good for cruising, because I know first hand that both work out just fine. I'm looking for a best of both worlds area...

It's a challenge. Maybe I should just start roller blading? HAHAHA. Kidding.
