For a bit of a different perspective, there's been a few cheap 3'6 here but I wouldn't buy one now because they're a bit too big. Unless you're a complete beginner smaller is better in my experience.
Smaller than 3'6?
Yes I ride a 100cm X 42cm board (carbonco Nang) in all conditions and don't see the need for an extra 6cm to 3'6".

In fact I've just ordered an Axis Tray which is 94cm X 48cm. I think that's a good length.

This is my personal feeling, everyone's different.

I purchased a 3'6" because my 37" board doesn't allow me to get my weight far enough forward for top speed riding. It works fine for moderate speeds but it's difficult to get the right stance to go fast on such a short board.
