If your looking to do jibs and butters and the such, the kink is a great deck. If your looking to do larger-feature jumps, consider something a touch stiffer. Really flexable boards have a tendency to wash-out when landing big jumps. This will also be further exaserbated by the fact that you are right on the cusp of the board's weight limit. Also, it won't "shake" at high-speeds, it will just throw you to the ground.
