are you hoping that its rocker/reverse camber?

i wouldnt count on it. with it being a promotionally built board, chances are that its camber.

If it's the one I saw on eBay a couple weeks ago it's a K2 Parkstar 155 or 157 reg (can't quite remember) PBR edition. It has all the tech of the Parkstar (jib rocker, etc) just with PBR graphics on a pearl white base color. I thought I put it in my "watched items" list just to see what it went for but I guess not. Pretty sure this year they just did the PBR Parkstar and then a PBR version of K2 Skis. Is this the board by chance? http://worcester.craigslist.org/spo/1586324472.html

Anyway yeah I rock a 157 Parkstar and the board is legit so it's a quality board.

Wow, a Parkstar? I'm impressed. As someone earlier mentioned, these promo boards are usually bottom of the barrel boards. Congrats!

Nice dude! Yeah the Parkstar rocks! I just got back from A-Bay, CO and rod EVERYWHERE! They got dumped on this weekend and fresh powder and the board performed soooo awesome! I road up on the east wall and montezuma bowl and then a couple trips through the park. Jumping everything I could. hah Trip number 2 is coming very soon.

Riding down the double blacks I popped a few rocks hard enough that I though I blew an edge but when I got down it was nothing more than a few burs on the edge that a file knocked out. I'm very happy with the board. The jib rocker is awesome!
