Trade-off...

So i ordered a k2 WWW rocker from porterstahoe and got it after 7 days (i live in Michigan) and it finally got here, but when i opened it up, the board was entirely pink... Some people might be ok with an all pink board, but i am neither good enough or flashy enough to be riding hot pink...

Also, when i took the board out to feel the flex, it was a little softer than i would like and so i returned it for those reasons. I called and they said theyed give me free shipping on the return if i ordered another board from there (cust. serv. was pretty good) and so, after feeling the www, i decided to go with something a bit stiffer, the capita stairmaster.

I've always heard good things about the stairmaster, scaremaster, and the extreme. The main reason i got the www-r was to hit some rails and jibs, but i decided it was too flimsy for the kind of jumps i'll be going off. Do you think i made a good decision for a trade off board that ill be mostly using for rails and medium/large jumps?

Any reviews or opinions would be great...

I'm not sure but I think the scare and stair are the same. I'm just wondering but is the entire thing pink(like without any designs and such)?

no, it has random colors with the sweater design and he got unlucky. i know graphics arent important but sometimes thigns can be too flashy lol, a pink www is one of those things if you cant back it up.

i have a few days on my extreme and all is good! i love it. it can handle all the jumps and the rails, and leave the park when i want it too, rarely, but it still has no problem doing it..

The Stairmaster is stiffer than the noodly WWW, you'll like it more. It'll handle better on the jumps too.

I would love a pink www and a dora the explorer helmet too. But I'm not skilled enough for that honor. I guess its up to personal opinion on colors and stuff. Have fun with your new board!
