I had posted in this thread previously inquiring about the ET but since I am looking for something to add to my quiver that is different, this board has come up now. I am looking for a park oriented board that I can also take down ice steeps here on the east coast since my current stick is a Sierra Reverse Crew. Also I am 5'08/175 lbs w/ 10/10.5 boots. I would love to gowith the 154 to have a smaller park oriented board but don't want to push the envelope as far as the waist width and my weight is concernbed.

Thanks, and Yeah For It!
Hi Strick-9,

The Fun Kink is a terrific board but it is very soft an would not be my first choice for what you are describing. Very soft and NE icy steeps are not a perfect match, even with TBT. The ET's are still crazy fun for freestyling and in the park but are a bit stiffer and resist icy chatter quite a bit better.

Thanks!
