I'd really spend the extra $20 bucks and get a Stairmaster or Scaremaster. Its the exact same board with different sets of graphics. Get the 159...But whats your boot size? That could change things.

Which would you recommend out of the option and the k2

Yeah it is 'technically' a park board but I loved it for everything I could throw at it. I recommend it over the other two because I think its a better board for your money. If you just don't want it though then I recommend the K2. Overall they make better boards than Option.
