Looking for a freestyle deck...
Okay so i'm looking at a few freestyle decks to get my d*ck wet in the butter/jib game.

I'm 6'5" 230lbs and ride a size 13 boot so width has to be 260mm+

So far i'm looking at the following :
Nitro T1 158W
Sierra Stunt 162W
Flow Quantum 158
Flow Verve 158
Nitro Misfit 160W
Nitro Team 162W (if i can find it!)

I'm not going to be hitting 30 foot jumps or anything in fact it'll probably be 10 foot max air for a while (and that's pushing it) so folding up on landing may not be much of an issue, i'm really just wanting a board that could take my weight landing on it, twisting it, buttering it etc and provide soft enough flex to do those things easier. Also twin or twin like shape is a must.

Any thoughts on those boards or perhaps others i should look at you know what to do...

I'm 6'1" 245lbs. sz 12 boots.

I bought a Ride Kink 159w, for the same reasons as you. I tried it out last week, and couldn't be any happier with it.

Nitro Sub Zero (prob the softest board ever made) or K2 www (great jib board)

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately the Sub Zero isn't wide enough for me and i've never really liked K2 to be honest haha
