HELP plz! New Board

Hey guys im looking to buy a new board for this season. I'm looking for a board that is soft enough for jibbing/park and the occasional big jumps. I'm 5'11" and 155lbs. Thanks

The Ride Machete looks awesome! But i heard its about a 5 or 6 on the stiffness scale, I'm looking for something thats a little softer. Do you know how much the 2010 Machetes are?

i bought mine from billysbackyard.com for about $300 but you could find them on a bunch of other websites for around that price

I'd probably also look at the NS SL-R and K2 Parkstar as boards you can take from the park to the mountain and vice versa.

Nitro T1, Ride Kink, Indoor FK, Parkstar, Artifact '85... You can pretty much just pick what you like best. Something around 150-152. Honestly you can just pick a graphic you like...

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
