Advice on second board needed :)

Hi guys,

I currently ride a Burton T6 and I love it!! I'm looking for another board that's more geared towards the park and freestyle. I'm a 190 lbs/6 ft male who's been riding for 7 yrs +. Any advice on some good boards for freestyling? Not looking to spend too much $$....thanks..

Boot size? What's your ratio of park as well? Are you a more jump type of person? More jibbing? A fairly even split of both worlds?

Thanks guys...I wear a size 10 boot and I'm looking for a freestyle board that is light and really good for jumping mainly. Looking to spend around $300 maybe a little more...Any suggestions? Cheers

never summer evo, 155. great for park, and its a stiffer board. this means you can keep the size down and still be able to press it at your weight. my last board was an evo, and going to that from a nitro was like going from a ford to a porche. i think you can get last years model for under 300. and you will definately love it more than your burton.

Thanks for all the advice guys. I am just a bit confused about the length of board I should be looking for. I guess it should be shorter than a freeride board but I also don't want it to be too stiff. I would prefer something that allows me to recover easily and pops nicely. Thanks.

Rome Agent w/ Some 390 bindings. Although it kinda caters to those who prefer natural features, I have a blast riding mine in the park on big jumps and what not. It's not the most flexible thing in the world like the artifact which is like riding a wet noodle but its still fun on boxes and whatever else there is to slide around on.

At 190, look at a 157-ish board. It'll be more stable for jumps, and handle your weight well.
