Ride Kink or Burton Blunt

theyre the same price so im wondering which is better board and better fit for me. im not a beginner but im not that advanced either. just small- mid kickers and boxes but nothing fancy.

thanks!

I rode my friends 07' Burton Blunt last time and it seemed like a solid board. It was not as stable through powder but it seemed at home in the park. Have you looked into Rome boards? My friend does not take care of his edges and base so maybe that is a problem with control through the thicker stuff. Never had experience with the Kink.

Thanks Dubels! i only ride locally in SOcal. bear mtn and snow summit so i dont really have to worry about powder. and with the loooooong lift lines, i dont bomb down the hills coz more waiting for me. i guess i need to know which is more flexible or has more pop.

WELL ! IM a rider 15 yrs experience snowboarding and 30 yrs on surfing ...so you decide !

Kink im buying now today one kink 152 2008 becouse has the right dimentions for park .. rails boxes and butter, so no powder dud in this board think like a skater.

Blunt ?? well i benn riding burton unincs 156 ,158 and i think is the best board all around for jumps but you need experience, best burtons board.

5,8 long and 165 lbs.

so i need edges from 118 to 120 ...jibbing short edges ...but you sacriface control in ice conditions .

all matters is what do you want to do this winter !! other wise i can snack all day long on shapes or names ..

good luck body.. remember is you who are number one and you have to be conected to your board so you can make what you want ..like riding a horse.''

go with the ride kink. its got a little more flex than the blunt and ive said it alot i saw a kid come in with the topsheet cracked on the first day of riding, too hard or not idk what happend but he went with the ride kink. also rides customer service is really good with all their products becaues k2 runs em. ride = great quailty in the park. you will advance your park riding with it.

well the three softest boards that i know of are the rome artifact, ride kink, and the k2 www. i've personally ridden the www (world wide weapon) and fell in love. the board literally made me better in one day, i was landing tricks i'd never even tried before. i highly recommend the santa cruz fusion or jon kooley. the kooley is kinda a suped up version of the fusion. they're both twin tip and they have a deeper sidecut on the heelside to help with heelside turns (everyone knows you don't turn as well on your heelside). I don't know anything specific about the blunt, but i've heard of people snapping tails on dom's and even last years unincs. the weapon is about the same price as the kink or blunt too. i love the longer effective edge, i could rock the 148, but i like the 151 cause it gives me the control of a 156, it actually made a noticable difference.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I like the Kink a lot myself. I have also never seen/had any problems riding a blunt. Both are great jib specific boards. The Kink is actually a good bit stiffer than the Blunt though, not the opposite as was said above.
