I have my powder/crud set back board.. sounds like I'll be shopping this summer for a clearance park board?!
Boxes go pretty easy on it as long as they are properly maintained by park staff. Stay away from rails if you can't bear a blemished base. Get a jib board and keep your current deck for jumps and cruising with speed.

I've tried to put alot of polish to my flatland game this season as I'm riding alot of greens and mellow blues. I haven't progressed much in the park. I'd love to feel like 7s are dialed and to throw a grab in there, but I doubt that'll happen.
