Reverse Camber Magna Traction Wide Help!?

I've been riding for a while and I'm ok in the park (5's and 270 boards being my best so far). I've never had a lot of cash to spend on a board so I've always ridden crappy boards. I've never been able to press anything. Now I have some cash and I want to kill the park this year. But I'm still gonna ride a lot of groomers and Pow. What board should I buy??

I'm a big guy at 6'4, 205lbs with size 12 boots. So I need a wide board. I was gonna buy a Lib Tech Skate Banana but I've been told to get the Lib Tech Skunk Ape because it's a bit stiffer and will be better for all mountain riding.

I've also looked at the K2 Parkstar (which is a lot cheaper), Burton Custom Reverse Camber (Expensive), and a few Rome 1985's.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm looking for a reverse camber board with magna traction that's wide and about a 159-163.

Umm, if you have to have magne, then you have to go Mervin (Lib, Gnu, Roxy...)

Wide parkstar sounds great for your purposes. And with a size twelve, you can get away with a lot of park boards if you ride wide and with at least a +/-12* angle on your bindings. I have a friend with twelves who rides a standard Hero with no prblems at all.

With that, I really reacommend a Green Machine, or for more jumps an Indoor Survival FK.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
