Best Answer

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.

What is the best sector 9 longboard?

There is no best or worst Sector 9 longboard, or any longboard for that matter. This answer is all about preference and riding style. If you are into downhill the best board will be different from someone into carving. I am personally into downhill and I like the new Sector 9 Downhill Division boards, they are really nice.
