Default Freestyle/Park Board

I would probably consider myself an intermediate rider. I handle my board pretty well on the hill and have just started messing around in the park. The board I'm riding right now is a Salomon Amp 159. I'm a pretty skinny guy, 6'0 and 1/2, 150 lbs. My Amp is definitely on the stiff side and I feel like it's limiting my progress in the park. I'm looking for something that is a tad bit more forgiving.

How small could I go for a more freestyle/park oriented board? Also, some recommendations? I've heard good things about the atomic hatchet, rome agent, and nitro boards in general.

How small you could go in size really depends on the brand. There is no general rule. For example, the Burton Blunt 151 says it is for riders up to 155lbs (I think). Meanwhile, the K2 W.W.W. 152 deck covers people up tp like 180lbs. The best advice I could give you is to pick out a few brands that you like. Then compare the stats of their decks and see what seems to fit your weight, budget, etc.

All that said, I'll put a plug in for Never Summer Decks.
