Hey. I'm looking into getting a new board after this season when I get some cash from my summer job again and becasue my first board was an xmas present from years past I never really went through the whole reaserching boards process. So my question is, which are the top brands out there for the best price? I've heard stuff like burton, rome, k2, rossingnoll and others. Obviously some of this will be opinion but there have to be a few that rise above the rest with quality for the price they ask. My details are; female, 125, 5' 7'', size 7 foot and I'm looking for an intermediete, freestyle board that is fairly flexible (the board I have now is not flexible enough and it really annoys me) so if you have any more specific board ideas beyond the brand that would be helpful too (like length and stuff). Thanks a lot.

Yeah? I looked at the Rome Vinyl while browsing the internet. Would it be good for working up on skills too? I've done a couple of rails and I'm good at smallish jumps, but like I said, my board is far too stiff for me so I haven't progressed as far into freestyle as I would have liked, still I'm not a beginner anymore and can get down the slopes real easily.

it would defintly be good for working up your skills. It's almost definitly flexxy enough although I've never tried it. It looks like a really good board.

Is it flexxy in the way that it's in danger of snapping, or will I be golden? Is there a way to find if it has an older model that's close enough to the same thing to still be an awesome ride but would be easier to find cheaper? And when I'm looking at sights how do I take my size seven foot and determine how wide I would want a board to be?

O-Matic Tara Dakides, Atomic Fallen Angel are other boards to look at for park as well...Try to keep length anywhere from a 146 to 150ish, tops for park.

It would not snap, I dont think any boards would. You could get last years or two years ago model, there probably the same thing with a bit of a different graphic. The boards are all the same width so your foot will be fine. You might mean length but im not oood at determining that unlike many other people on this site.

the fallen angel looks sweet. Any word on Ride boards? I've heard good things but their site is kinda hard for me to figure out, almost all their girl boards have different style names and I can't figure out what level they're all at and I'm really not sure what the shapes of the boards means acctually. Thanks.

if you want a freestyle ride board the fever is probably the best.

Ride makes good boards. I'm not really a fan of how they ride, but that's just my opinion. If you're having problems figuring out Rides site, click around on a bunch of different links and you'll find your way around eventually...
