Looking for a rocker?

I am 5"8 and 164. I am just doing a little research right now onto what type of board i should get. I was looking for a more park oriented boar, something that is A LOT more flexible than my current burton duce. I was looking at the k2 www, didn't look to expensive. Also looked at the Burton V-rocker which is a little out of my price range right now(jobless, goign job hunting today for the summer ) Also looking at the DC PBJ LTD. I don't want a board that is too beginner, because I progessive fast.

Just got to use my new burton blunt yesterday, has the v-rocker. I love it rode all over the mountain and through the park all day without an issues, never caught an edge and it helped my when I failed land straight. I'm new to the park stuff so not sure how a pro would rate it but I love it. Was only 185 bucks at sierra's 50% off.

Forum Scallywag or Destroyer Chillydog might also be good options. The Scallywag is very reasonably priced.

I ride a Forum Dreamboat myself, and It's not a great park board. That said, it can certainly hold it's own but being directional, landing switch sucks. The Scallywag is a centered version of the Dreamboat. Actually, if I can find myself a Scallywag I might pick one up.

Forum's website says it's a 4/10 for flex, but that's also what they say about the Dreamboat. I thought it was a bit softer than the Dreamboat when I demo'ed the Scallywag.

if you are looking for a flexy rocker board take a look at

Nitro SubZero
Capita Horrorscope
K2 WWW rocker
Arbor Draft
forum scallywag
Academy Propaganda
Stepchild jib stick

there are many others, but i can personaly vouch for the Subzero as i own one, and love it, most fun board i have ever ridden

Too Fast!
