Mervin doesn't make a park board worth buying. Skip the Forces too. They're good, but overrated. Better options would be K2 Indy's, Raiden Zeros, Rome 390's, or Flow M9's.
I suggest the Arbor Westmark, Signal Omni, Bataleon ET, Flow Era, or a Nitro Rook. All around a 155-158. Bigger for more jumps smaller for more jibs. I doubt you'll find anyone say a bad thing about any of those. They are all some of my favorites.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friend
