Unhappy 250lbs looking for freestyle board!?!?

Ok looking for park/freestyle board, more kickers then rails in the park. Been looking at some boards but they dont got my size in them and i am afraid if i get like a 159 it would be more flexible then a Thia hooker. Any suggestions!? thanks in advance.

I would suggest the Lib Tech TRS BTX. I'm about your weight and I ride a 161. The magnetration will hold an edge on even the iciest of ice. It's a stiff baord to begin with so you shouldn't have a problem there. CHeers.

At 250 I'd start looking at a treadmill.

My normal riding weight its between 170-180 and i got up to 200lbs and it sucked. I'm back down to 190 but I can still feel the difference of being overweight, esp jumping and having control in the air. Next year I'm going to come in at 170 and stay there all season.

Never Summer SL-R in a 164 is going to be your best bet imo.....

Never Summer boards are virtually indestructible and come with a 3 year warranty. With your weight your going to be harder on a board without you even trying to be.

The vario grip and R/C tech in NS boards is about as good as the industry has to offer. You don't need magnetraction unless all you do is ride on the ice coast.

What's your foot size with that weight? You may need a wide

I have fat friends...I wouldn't let them jump on rails if they wanted to. If I did, that would be cold.
