I'm also gonna be looking for a more playful board eventually. Been eyeing the Rome Artifact Rocker or the Capita Horoscope. You should check those out. Very playful boards and I've heard nothing but good things from park riders about em. I think you can find last seasons Artifact for pretty cheap now. I'd say around 230-260$ if you're lucky. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread though. Interested what other people suggest.
Here's the specs to those board though if you're interested.
