Most people are going to prefer a softer binding in the park, but you still don't want them to be softer than your board wants. Being that Kass is probably known best as a pipe jocky his current model probably still caters to that. Meaning it will be a little stiffer torsionally and probably midstiff tip to tail. So SF45's will get you the control of the board that you would want. And flus is knowwn for pillow comfortable straps.
I have been really liking my Flow M9se's lately and those or the standard M9's will be great. SE's will have a bit more top end play but with the aluminum heelcup I've actually found them to be a hair more responsive edge to edge.
Thirdly check out Raiden Phantoms. Dual airbags will keep the chatter from your knees but keeps the feel lively, solid smooth ratchets, great park skate influenced highback, great toestrap, and a comfy ankle strap.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
