Wanting new board...need help!

Hey,

I worked a season last year in the three valleys, France, and im going back for another season. I enjoyed my all mountain board however im now looking to get a board that i can play with. Im looking for something that i can do flatland and park tricks, something flexible.

Im currently riding a 155 Salomon board. Im 5'6" and i've been recommended the Ride compact 150 from a friend but as you said in another forum is best to ask the pro's before buying.

I dont want to spend lots of money but looking for something ill have loads of fun on for my second season.

Thanks for your help

Jen

Can't really recommend a size without your weight and boot size.

As for the Ride Compact, the female shredders around here love that board. I personally love the Ride brand for men. They make great quality boards.

Lots of great park boards out there! The Compact is a good suggestion. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, the Capita Space Metal Fantasy is one of the softer boards out there and is a reasonable price. I own one and love it. I also have a Gnu B-street which is a gorgeous deck and very soft as well. Also look into the Roxy Eminence, Roxy Ollie Pop, Burton Lipstick, Arbor Cadence, K2 VaVavoom.

It's always best to demo boards before you buy them. There are tons of excellent park boards out there; what is best really just boils down to what you like the best.

Check out tons of great reviews at shayboarder.com.
