well while you're at it, Capita Sierrascope FK - Snowboards Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com

This is the mother of all park boards. Incredible bang for the buck. Just read the reviews and see for yourself. It will also work as an all mtn board, just not for bombing.

If I didn't already have a new board, I'd get this one quicker than you could say ''tickle me funny''

free shipping to U.S too

Bombing - going madd fast. Park boards are very flexible. Flexible boards at high speeds become very unstable, bumps, crud, sharp turn will make the board buckle and cause you to fall. A more rigid board is needed for high speeds.

In that case, the sierra crew would be better.

I'm not experienced enough to recommend you an adequate board size

Sierra's website has an excellent chat and forum. I'd suggest you ask there!!

but just to give you a rough idea.. what's your foot size?

156 for a better freeride, 152 for better park.

Foot size is to determine if you need a wide board or regular.

My freeride board is a 160. I'm 5'8 162 lbs. just so you get an idea.

nah they'll still work anywhere, just not as effectively. But I still hear lots of ppl saying they go everywhere with their park boards. The only thing it can't do is go super fast. Park boards are actually the best for beginners since they have so much flex, thus easier to control.

Sierra crew is pretty much an all arounder, you can't go wrong. It's made by Burton btw.
