Default Park Board that can handle all mountain

Hey guys,

I wanted to get more into park and jumps this year, i did more last year but now I wanna get a new board. I have a Ride Control and I would like to get something better for rails and stuff but that will still be decent for speed and stability, with emphasis leaning toward park ability. Any recommendations? Some I've looked at are: Ride Kink, Forum Substance, Rome Machine, Gnu STreet series, Rome Artifact, etc.

If you want to stick with ride I'd go with the Machete. You can take it all over the mountain and still hit rails in the park.

k2's Darkstar in previous editions was a park board you could take anywhere. It's zero camber now, but it might still have the same ability out of the park.

If you live east coast by chance you could try a small startup's stuff "BlakSheep".

Yeah I live in Connecticut. where can I check out Blaksheep? and what about the Capita Stairmaster? I really want to be able to improve in park so I do want it to be flexy so I can press boxes and be more confident on rails but I don't want it to be complete crap flying down the mountain either. another one i'm interested in is the stepchild latchkey ripper

I think the evo-r would be a better match that the circuit. Others to look at would be the parkstar, fastplant (if you like a more natural bamboo flex), nitro rook, CAPiTA indoor fk, ride dh2, or a grip.

Wouldn't do a machete, they actually work way better as an all mountain as my park instead of an all park board.

NS Evo. It's amazing how well that board handles all mountain for being mostly park.

Graft is better for his needs in my opinion. The Postermania didn't do me very well on a steep run. I regretted even trying to take that thing down a steep and icey run lol. It's a softer board so yea.
