Post Rail Board

Im thinking about getting a rail board for myself. Im looking at a board that can hold up on rails without breaking after a few seasons and at the same time good for jumps. I weigh about 160, have a boot size of 13 and Im 5'10". Im looking at lengths between 151-153
Im thinking a capita stairmaster? what are you're opinions?

Revolver-R sounds about right for you or K2 Parkstar or Darkstar, all wides of course

I'm a Capita lover but if your gonna abuse it a lot on rails and want it to last for a few years, not gonna happen.

In fact it's going to be very difficult for any stick to last a few years on rails.

Revolver does in fact sound like your best bet given your inquiry

but the revolver is freestyle(?). i think he wants a strictly park oriented board. stairmaster is a great choice, also check out the artifact. my cousin rides that, and hes sponsored. plus its dirt cheep.

The Revolver is a park board. Freestyle is part of park. I would recommend the Circuit which is a little softer, but it doesn't come in wides. Never Summer is also probably your best bet if you want it to last a couple years.

That's pretty much it.... Revolver is wide for him, and built like a tank.

The fact that he's wanting it to last a few years means he may have to sacrifice somewhere. Revolver isn't a noodle exactly but it will do the job and well for a very long time. Kind of a best value if you know what I mean SPAZ

haha all these NEVERSUMMER suggestions!!! revolver sounds like a great board. Might as well spend the extra money on that. The graphics look pretty filthy on 2011 model too

I also heard the 2011 has a different RC tech. Theres supposedly a flat spot before it goes to the camber which gives it more pop, but according to BA it gets a little hooky on rails. You might want to get the 2010 version. I'm also a new owner of a Never Summer Board. I just got the 2010 Circuit and you can tell by how well its crafted that its gonna last.
