I want to buy a long board, I just want one to ride around town on, no tricks, nothing to fancy, how much would it cost?

and I never have ridden any type of broad before, is it hard to keen how to just ride around? and how long will it take? I'm a fast learner,

I recommend buying a Comet longboard which costs between $150 and $300 depending on whether it is new or used. Some other good brands that you can use are Flexdex, Never Summer and Original. Check out http://www.ehow.com/info_8116097_longboards-beginners.html for tips on choosing a longboard.

It's as easy or as hard as learning to roller skate,no brakes! cheap as 15 bucks at wal-mart ,higher for pro board-later,after you learn.practice on side walk near grass.
