if you are using a hydraulic press then you need a lu\mber supply that specializes in vaneers like a cabinetry place... if you just wanna mess around and make something out of Home Depot wood, use a thick birch sheet of plywood, maybe $50, but will make about 20 longboards.

What is the best wood to make a longboard out of?

The "best" wood depends on if you want your longboard to be flexible, stiff, light, or heavy. Maple is a common wood used to build stiff longboards, it is a tad heavy but not really a problem. An alternative to this is Baltic Birch wood, it is cheaper than maple but a little more flexible. Bamboo is also used on longboards but may be harder to press and access. If you are going to make a longboard I would recommend using fiberglass on the bottom and maybe even top layer to add some strength.
