Park stix

(K I did a search in the forums and didn't come up with much.)

Looking for a park board.

I'm 5'8, 160 lbs and ride a 160 Nitro Pantera

I'm starting to take a liking to flatland tricking and park stuff.

I can spin 180's off small bumps and flatland but because of my boards massiveness it's all roflcopter from there on.

I was looking at the Sierrascope 152 and ppl have mentioned it to be the best park oriented - all mountain board.

But I want a board that's STRICLY park-oriented, considering I want to detune it to suit all the park features; I would not used it elsewhere. I will keep the Pantera for the rest.

I went to my local shop and they suggested a Burton Hero, but meh.. lol

(will be purchasing next year only)

Thx in advance for any tips!!

It really depends on what you're looking for - if you want something for mostly jibs, something mostly for jumps, or something that can do a bit of both. Really soft boards will do you well for butters and jibs, whereas you might want a bit more pop for jumping and stability when landing. Some soft boards include the K2 WWW Rocker, Nitro Swindle, Nitro SubZero, Capita Horrorscope, Capita Stairmaster, Rome Artifact, Signal Park Rocker..
