Question Park Board Suggestions?

Hey guys,

I am looking for suggestions for a new park board. Currently I have a Ride Baretta but it just doesn't handle the best in the park. I would love to have a board that has alot of flex to it, soft to medium soft.

For reference I'm 5'10, 160 lbs and wear a size 10 women's boot.


I have been looking at the 151 Lib Tech Burtner Box Scratcher the most if anyone has experience with this board I would love to hear about it!

While you will be better off on a mens board, I just don't see the value in the Box Scratcher. No one needs a $460 retail jib board.

Look for: Flow Verve, K2 Weapon, Ride Kink, Echelon Orion or Archer, Burton Deja Vu Camber or Parkitect, or an Arbor Cadence or Westmark.

You've got the size figured out. Most of those should come in like a 51-52, that's what you want.

wait for the offseason and check whiskys it sells for as low as 200.

most jib boards sell for under 200 or more then 50% off retail during offseason.

The YES Basic might be a really great option for you too. They have a lot of flex without giving up performance in and out of the park. If you're looking to bend it like Beckham check out a Horroscope.
