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.

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.
