i think thats a pretty controversial question it depends on your riding style and personal opinion because there isnt one board thats the best
but my opinion is that rome makes good park boards like the artifact and graft for rails and jumps

ya, the only thing about that is that the bronze edging makes it harder to just ride on packed stuff. but what board is a good all around board that is mainly good in park but can shred the whole mountain and freestyle stuff good

My first real board was a burton seven that I got three years ago. I rode regular mountain trails on it the first year then went to about one fourth park and now this year I ride a little more then half park. I got a burton custom for mountain ridig and use the seven fir the park days. Personally I love it it has Moderate flex is very light and versitile. Pop off jumps on it is also amazing. Besides the proformance features I like it because not many people have. I never thought that it was a great park board until I progressed more and more in the park. Some of my friends who are even more advanced in the park were riding with Me when they asked what board I had and I said a seven and they were begging me to try it out (they were riding Rome grafts and another Rome park board can't remember) it made me feel pretty good that they wanted to try it so bad

I ride the k2 darkstar and because it's one of the best park boards on the market. The K2 jibpan is also top notch. There are quite a few choices. It really comes down to what specs you need.

yeah man there are so many different types of park riding you can do, but I will say +1 for the Jibpan. I have the 07/08 and it's served me well all-mountain as well as in the park.

The edges on the arifact do get fawked pretty easy but if you know how to ride a board it doesn't matter that much. I ride an artifact and barely touch the park, but I HAUL ASS on it everywhere I go and the jacked edges dont slow me down or make life very hard. I can bomb the thing through pow without a problem either. Im not sure what your conditions are but I don't see too much ice here in Colorado, ice may present a problem with the bronze edges and how easily they get ruined. With that said I was shooting for a jibpan but found my artifact for 200 bucks so I had to take it.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

i ride an artifact and i mainly ride in missouri. 1hr north of KC. Its a tiny mt called snowcreek. Its always ice and the only problem i have is adjusting befor a box or rail to make sure i am lined up. Happenes every now and then to where i just cant get striaght on. But my friend rides the same board and he filed down his edges.
