I did it. Yesterday.
Despite my misgivings, I have gone and bought a new Phase 1 (P1) longboard skateboard 42″ x 9″ with Canadian Maple deck and 50 degree trucks from eskatestuff on eBay. (There. I got in all the keywords for Google searches!). Cost? $130 plus $20 postage to Brisbane.
I will be interested to see how the skateboard goes. I will post a review once I have received the longboard.
Update 6 April 2008: It appears that eskatestuff are no longer selling these skateboards under the Phase 1 name. Their current boards are branded Vault.
How is your board doing it now? I’m thinking of buying the same board…

It looks like a good buy, so most likely i’m going for it!
i have the bling old school skateboard and personly i think that it is a bit too rigid and i had to loosen my trucks on my old birdhouse this was not the case. Im thinking about putting new wheels on. Do you recomend andything
I gave the Bling Old School to the lad next door. He is 14(ish) and has a ball on it blasting around the streets. Unfortunately it just was not big enough for me.
The upshot is, I do not have the board anymore, so could not recommend anything.
