Well lets go by parts!!!
I don't see the board as the most important part actually. So we'll start with
Crails- my favorites. They are actually downhill racing trucks, but if you replace the standard Moog busings with some Trackere 88a Hourglass bushings, you WILL have the best trucks ever!!!
Holeys- set up for carving straight out of the box. But you can't do much with speed with them (but you are in Florida, not too many hills). They look sweet too.
ABEC 11: They make some great wheels. My favorites are either Gumballs or Flashbacks. Gumballs are great, but Flashbacks are definately the best bang for your buck.
3DM: Avilas, Avalons, Speedvents, they're all sweet. Just nice, big, soft hunks of urethane. I have some Avilas in 72a (very very very soft!) in 76mm, they're the biggest Cadillac ride you can get.
Plenty of choices here, but I would definately say PleasureTool Bearings. 10 bucks for the best bearings you can buy, the seals are fantastic.
And finally, boards.
Lush, Gravity, Landyachtz, Chicago, Subsonic, Bustin, Longboard Larry, Roe, Kebbek, there are so many, I don't know why I can only remember those right now.
But if you want to carve, get something a bit flexy and some deep wheel wells, if you are looking to have a commuter or something, anything with a drop will be nice so when you push your feet are closer to level and its not as hard on you, a speed board you wanna get super stiff, slalom board is personal preference, but little, or a dancer, get with some flex, around 60". I make my boards, but I ride enough other boards to know what they feel like.
What do you want and how much do you want to spend?
