Default Hey, looking for a nice park board.

I was thinking about either buying Burton Blunt, Forum Youngblood, or Forum Destroyer, anyone has any experience with those boards if so let me know.
Oh and also i'm 154 lbs, Boots are 11 and i'm 6'0" - How long should it be? For park.
~Thanks.

You can def ride the 154 for park at your size...I'm 6' 180 and ride a 154 as my jib board and occasionally in the park and it handles with ease. I have a Darkstar 157 that I use for my park/all mountain board that handles high speeds and big jumps a little better. All that being said I would recommend anything from 154 - 156 but with an 11 i'm not sure you'll be able to get on those boards you have listed. I know the Forum destroyer and youngblood have narrow waists. Check out the Capita Mid-life theory or Mid-life lost in 155.

capita indoor survival as well.

if you're looking to stay within the price range of your original three, i'd suggest the capita stairmaster/scaremaster.

Umm, I've got ruler 11 boots at the moment - I actually need new bindings and board. What about Youngblood 155 W or Destroyer 156 W and Rome 390's? Would that work?
Well where i live they don't sell Capita , thanks for your help btw.

Alright, going to get either Rome graft 155 or Youngblood wide 155, i'm sure both of them will be better then my old one, that isn't really even meant for park and that is way too narrow for me.

So Rome Graft would be pretty much perfect choice if i want to hit the kickers for rotation tricks, jib a bit and ofcourse a little bit buttering ? And then i should get new bindigns too i guess, L/XL Rome 390's for size 11 burton ruler boot? Actually going to Finland to get Rome Graft because they don't sell Rome in Estonia.

dude i think if you want a park board you should go smaller than 155. I suggest you look at the capita scaremaster 152. It should be plenty wide for you as it is kind of a wide board already. Or you can look at the 152 wide. I ride a 152 destroyer and my foot size is 10 and it fits fine... im 5'11 and 158.
