pure park

I am an average rider, progressing in park been riding for 3-4 seasons and only in the last season have actually gotten better at park, i am looking for a super soft park board for mostly boxes and little fun butters and tree taps and stuff, a few jumps but not really a focus on them.
i dont wana spend more than 350$ canadian on a deck and was wondering on some opinions.
i am 6'1 and i expect i will weigh around 155lbs by this winter. no lib techs recommended plz i hate them, also i would like to stick to regular camber.

my guess so far is signal park board but cant find it anywhere

Well for that price range you'll probably have to look at last years boards. Look for the kink, swindle, www, stairmaster. The kink and swindle will probably have the most options left. Something around 150-152 will be nice.

True, but thats why I threw it in there. People that don't like rocker are usually still comfortable on zero. It just feels like a broken in standard camber. I don't know about for this year, but in the past there has been a Park Rocker and a standard camber Park.

Before the end of this season I saw some old Evo's that weren't guaranteed rocker/camber (NeverSummer used to make some in a camber format). You might be able to find some of these on the online sites...

Would you be amendable to a rocker/camber format? Or is it just camber, nothing else?

ok wow that gear scan thing someone mentioned has some great flippin deals! wow. anyways, can anyone say for a jib board, what it would be like to ride a 140 ish size board? there is a stepchild one on there for 170$ with free shipping and i was just wondering what it would be like, never having ridden anything under 159, because the shop measured boards by the persons hight. would it be worth it? or will it be just stupid and not work very well? i just ask because the small boards seem to be really cheap

small boards are cheap but that doesn't change how the board fits you. how much do you weigh?

Nitro Sub Zero is also very soft, and they have it at that Gearscan for $209. I also own the park Rocker which is very fun to play around with.
