Some beginner concerns.

Hello hello hello. If anyone is still checking up here, I just got back from a late night skate rendezvous with a pal of mine and I have some concerns. My problem is my first board (the one I use now) is pretty much a cheap piece of shit and everything came standard from a local shop. The trucks are tight and squeaky, if I take my hand and spin my wheels they probably last for like a mili-second, and on top of that the board is ugly and blank. I have horrible curb fright and I stopped bombing hills because I fly off of the board over one teeny tiny rock, is that a wheel problem/terrain? Or is that just me? Anyways, since its my birthday and I have some cash I want to update...but I don't really know what to look for I want one complete board for cruising around and I'm going to buy some accesories for my blank to make it a board for doing tricks and stuff.

Any suggestions of brands you like for wheels and berings and all that shit? Does wheel size/looseness/truck flexibility matter? What things are more appropriate for cruising? Doing tricks?

ps. Sorry if there were spelling errors, I don't really know how to spell skateboard parts.
