My First Skateboard? Help?

Hey, I'm 15 and I've been longboarding for 2 years. I had a really long longboard with huge wheels so I almost never ate ****. I'm very comfortable riding my longboard and I love it. But now I want to try regular skateboarding where I can start to do kickflips and ollies with my friends. I have a size 12.0 foot and I know that can affect how wide my first board should be. I will be riding mostly on my driveway/sidewalk/street/rough asfault. Never on a skatepark. Money is not an issue, but definitely not over 200 dollars. I want a complete set because I'm a beginner. I've been looking online and I honestly have no idea which one is better or anything. I just want a good quality one that will last, and fit my "beginner" needs. I pick up things quickly so I'll be trying tricks on the board. I'd like to buy it online, so please let me know which specs I should be looking for, or send me a link of a board you think works for me. Thanks a bunch! :)


If I do buy a non-complete one online and I choose everything myself, which site do you guys deem best? and board width?
