Default Looking to Buy new Board please help :D

Hey guys I know there are about a billion of these threads so I apologize in advance. Here are my stats: height 6í4, weight 215 Iím currently riding a Rome machine 156 but after lots of wear and tear its time that I get a new stick. Iíve heard good things about rocker boardís so Iím leaning towards that, and also like the idea of wide boards because I have pretty big feet. Price isnít TOO much of an issue as long as the board will last against some serious rail abuse. Iím a park rat and but still love my occasional riding. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and let me know if you need more info, thanks again Cheers

Check out the Never Summer Revolver. It's a park-oriented wide board, size 156, 59, 61... Three year warranty should take all the abuse you can throw at it. The Legacy is also mid-wide, not park specific but would probably handle a little better on groomer days than the Revolver.

Go with what ever size suits. Shorter for park, the longer one for pow/all mountain (there is only 5cm difference between the two, your probably not going to notice it)
