The Never Summer Ransom Longboard isn't your average cruiser. This short, responsive board lets you rip tight hillside streets with a level of control that'll leave your friends eating dust. The secret is Never Summer's fiberglass- and carbon-reinforced wood deck. Not only does the Random provide quick handling characteristics that other longboards can't match, it's also surprisingly stable at high speeds.

I have no previous expeirence with longboards but would like to get involved. iam over 250 lbs and about 5 ll any suggestions on a board . doesnt have to be from this site. Thanks for all the help.
Hopefully you know some friends that have longbaords test thier out see whats ur style i have a 39" longboard a 6 foot longboard all kinds of boards! Its really up to your own style. I personally never tried this board before i have a Sector 9 which is a classic longbaord, www.sector9.com
and Old school santa cruz.
What type of riding will you be doing flat land? Carving? Mountian Riding?
37 inches. It almost doesn't feel like a longboard. The smaller size and up-front shape help it to be really responsive, and the 72mm 78a wheels provide great traction (but aren't real easy to slide). But get this thing on a hill and it cruises! (and the stock Paris 180mm trucks are nice). If you want a board that handles really well yet also does fairly well at speed, this would be hard to beat.
Pretty dang sick
Today i skate shop brought a bunch of boards out and let us demo them all. I rode basicaly every NS board and a bunch of sector 9's. Really the sickest boards and nicest set ups ever. I was suprised when i tried all of the different boards (about 20), and found that hands down my favorite was a little super simple board. It turns so well and the board shape does so well. It also does suprisingly well going fast, considering it is so short. Crazy good turns, to a lot to boardslide. great traction. Probably the sickest board i have ever ridden.
