New Board K2 Believer v. K2 Darkstar Wide
I am looking to pick up a new board for next season after 4 good years of service out of my lib. I want to try out something in the K2 line and step down from a 161 to something in the 157 range so that it is a little more useful in the park. I ride probably 60% mountain 40% park and rarely jib I mostly just air it out in the park so I need something that has good pop, ollies well, and can bomb blacks. I am on the east coast so im riding packed icy stuff most of the time. I looked at the WWW and Jibpan and thought they are probably going to be a little flexy for what I want to do. The rocker really isn't important to me because as I said I'm not a jib rat (I'll hit rails but its not really my thing) and I rarely ever ride in powder. The Darkstar looks proven and stable enough to do what I want to do. The Believer seems to incorporate both worlds into their flatline design, my only concern with the Believer is that I don't know if it will be wide enough for a size 12 boot. I'm 6'1" 173lbs.
