Looking for park rail everything
 
Looking for a board that can do everything basically. I'm 5'9.5" 150 pounds
I ride
on scale of 1-5
park-4
rails-4
typically runs-3
I prefer a board on the softer side, but I really want a board that can do everything, but focus on park/ rails. What do you guys think?

how soft are you looking? Like wet noodle soft? or like flexible but firm enough to cruise groomers?

yeah ^

ive heard good things about the stepchild jibstick, but ive never ridden it myself.

skate banana is always a good option, but its very soft so you might not be as comfortable with it on jumps/cruising. if you like lib-tech/GNU boards, however, take a look at the pickle. its a little stiffer than the banana.

liberyboardshop.com has excellent deals on the stepchild jibstick. i just personally picked up the nitro swindle. cant wait for it to get here on wed.

Not as soft as the banana, but softer then my current del rey.

Are you female or male? I have the impression that you are a lady, so I can recommend the Capita Space Metal Fantasy, Gnu B-street, Roxy Eminence, Roxy Ollie Pop, and Never Summer Pandora. All are soft-flexing park boards, but kill it all-mountain. The Salomon Gypsy also gets great reviews.

I personally have the B-street, although I don't actually do much in the park. It is my go-to board and rides nicely everywhere except choppy snow and big jumps.
