Default Gnu space case

Hi all, new member here. I have been riding for 2 seasons now, and am ready to purchase my first board. I saw a very good deal for the gnu space case and was wondering if it was just specifically for park. I ask because I am more of a free riding boarder. I weigh 175lbs. Would the 156 or 158 be better for me? Or is this board not that stable at speed and I should just look elsewhere? Thanks all in advance for any help

Look elsewhere. Really cool board, but it's definitely very park specific. If you know anything about Forest Bailey, he's a street boarder primarily so that should tell you what the Space Case was designed to do.

Where do you primarily ride? There's plenty of good deals on great boards this time of year.

The Linville for your speedy reply. I was afraid that that board was park specific. It looks so nice. I guess I'll goto my other two options then. The Burton restricted custom or the Arbor element cx. I ride mainly out west and in Asia

At the end I purchased an Arbor element cx 2012 model for $189 USD. But I am still salivating on the graphics of the space case. It's just so nice and I checked the 2015 model and did not like it so much. Will I really regret and not have fun with it if I did buy it too?

I just got the Space case and I love it, but I'm 70% or more in the park. Edge hold and control are great, easy to butter around and press. I rode my friends and dreamed about it till I got one
