Very good point made here by Jory. The fin you ride can dramatically alter the way any board rides.
If you can demo lots of boards, that the best thing you can do. Its a tough call to get a board when you're not sure what you want out of it, and how your surfing is going to progress. As I got into longboarding, I must have gone through 6 boards before I settled on what works for me, some I still have, some I don't. So, if you can avoid that, it would save a lot of money.
Its funny though, when I look back on it all, I wonder if my "style" of logging is because it is what I originally wanted, or what naturally developed by riding all those heavy old 60s logs...

I was tempted by it but I got too many logs and my gulf stream just seems to deal with anything, love that board. Where did you get that elevator butthole, Adam? Stunning, really loving that step deck and semi pig outline. Do you mind asking me how much it was? Would give my right arm for that board. Ive heard they hold well in steeper waves too, so you mind findyourself taking it out in a litle more juice. Enjoy!

Couple of walled up waves you could actually pump the thing for abit of extra speed, I think when I've got it dialed it will be a great board... Super fast when your up front. Well happy with my purchase.
