whats a couple good freestyle boards, also, vapor exsperiences?
hello everyone, im new here and thought id say hello. i've been looking for a decent board forum and havent seen this one until now. anyways, back to the question, right now im back in the market for an all mountain board, and a park board. last year i had the burton baron es, and just a clash and dominant slick as park boards. the baron made and excellent park board, but i didnt want to bash it up to much on rails so i used it mainly on jumps and hits, and it worked excellent. the clash and the slick work great to, the clash is extremely flexible which i like alot in a jibbing board. anyways, i was wondering what you guys prefer in the park and why?

second, i was considering the burton vapor for an all mountain board this year, what do you guys think about this board besides its outrageous price tag? i can get a good deal on last years model so im considering it.

what do you guys think about the rome artifact. im 160, 6 ft tall, regular footed, and wear a size 12 boot. right now my park board consist of a 154 clash, which works pretty well, and my regular board is a 158 custom x.

the artifact isnt wide enough for you, you need to get the rome machine if you want a rome. its basically the same as the artifact but its wide. Im also getting a freestyle board in about a week and i did some research and i found a Ride Kink and thats supost to be a park favorite. I think you can get a 08 ride kink for $309 at I found a 07 Ride kink for $209 but it is only 152cm. i was reading some posts on here and found this Calculater. i think it is pretty cool check it out+ it referes boards that a perfect for you.

Yeah, if you have the money the vapor might be an option, but beware I've heard that once you get a gash in it you might as well throw it away. But yeah, check out the Artifact. It really is a great board and should be a good fit for you.
