cheap park board?

I have a 2005 burton se7en 154. I like the board and it does great all over the mountain.

But im wanting to buy a second board...I want a super flexible board for jibbing rails and stuff......

any suggestions on a cheap one that isn't total garbage?

the ride kink is super soft and fairly cheap only $350. personally i havent rode one but from what i hear its noodle and is good for jibbing. i dunno if i would want a board that soft tho for jumps bigger than 20 ft. it felt super soft in the shop... another board i would look at it would be the k2 world wide weapon. both boards are good park boards if you're on a budget. either that or try to get hooked with an 09 left over.

also for another 25 bucks you can get a ride crush its basically a kink with a rocker... i think its a tad bit more stiff than the kink but its something to look into.

sweet thanks...

im thinking about getting a demo board.
sentury snowboards sends you a board for two weeks. so im thinking it would be a sick thing to try on my upcoming trip.

they're boards are only like 250 and if you return the board within 15 days they'll give you your money back.....so i might give that a shot...ive never ridden a super flexy board made to jib and id like to try it

The capita stairmaster is a great cheap board, last year they were selling for ~$100 at the end of the season, and are a bit stiffer than most jib boards so can handle some all mountain duty

Have you looked at blank snowboards? They're dirt cheap. AFAIK there are only a handful of OEMs in the snowboard industry, most boards are manufactured in only a few different factories around the world, and the real difference between many is just cosmetic. If you're looking for a board just for jibbing around, I'd be very tempted by the prices at Blank...

I was going to recommend this or just the Rome Artifact. The 1985 is a bit more stiffer I hear but the regular Artifact is really soft and flexible.
