Park and freestyle? I totally disagree. But then again, I'm not a park rat so... I took it on some beginner kickers (10-15'ish) last season and it was great for jumps. Gave me a glimpse of what it would be like to take it on some big terrain out west. I really want to ride it in powder and do some bigger lines with it. The Banana Magic is starved out East here.

I can imagine it being a good park board for jumps only. Too stiff for jibs.

If you are all-mountain freestyle, Proto for sure man. If you do mainly jibs and ride in tight spaces, the Evo.
