I'm huge, and I want a park board

I'm 6'3", 200 lbs. and wear a size 13 boot, to give you guys an idea.

I really want a flexy, fun to ride board that will work well in the park, but it seems that all park boards aren't even made in sizes that would suit someone as big as I am.

I'm looking at the never summer revolver-r, but I was looking to get some opinions from you guys. I just wanna hear from someone who's ridden it (or maybe the evo, since they're supposed to be the same)to get an idea of how flexy/fun/easy to press it is.

I also really don't know what size I should go for either, because I heard you can downsize on park/reverse camber boards like the revovler, but I'm not sure how much. Any help would be appreciated

The 159W Skate Banana seems like a fit. It's not all that flexible but it's -camber and at your weight, it might be "flexible enough". And you can take it all mountain too.

I believe the "downsizing" applies to powder riding where you no longer need a longer board for float as the -camber floats shorter boards.

Skate Banana Lib Tech Snowboards

I saw in a Lib Tech 2011 video in this forum that they are making more 2011 models in wide because a lot of big guys are using this board for the park so if you want to wait...

Just try not to break the boxes for the rest of us, K?

i ride an evo 153 (boots 9.5, 150lbs 5'10), but if i were your size i'd get revolver in 156 or 159.
if revolver is anything like an evo you don't have to put any effort to press it - super easy.

I'm over 200 lbs on a 56 revolver with size 13s. It's a lot of fun, perfect fit, easy to press, decent pop, and lots of torsional flex between the inserts which helps with awkward landings. The RC camber profile makes it feel like I'm cheating while riding. The only downside other then the hideous graphics is the board weight which is above average.

The whole downsizing thing with reverse camber boards is a marketing gimmick. However, I size down my freestyle boards substantially.
