Default Arbor Westmark

Hey so im in the market for a new board, currently i own a horrorscope 151 and really like the size but i want something a little stiffer with a sintered base, i think i found what im looking for with the westmark but i can't find any reviews about how stiff it is. can someone help me out? Other board recommendations are welcomed as well.

My homie rode one for a couple years all mountain. Everything from park to pow, and it served him really well. It's not a stiff stick, definitely on the softer end and playful, but he proved it was responsive enough to hang everywhere. Fast board too, as all Arbors are.

I'm all for pushing arbor, Maybe check the Coda too? But you just described the Indoor FK...

haha i know i kinda wish that i had bought the indoor, but i want to try something besides a capita and was just hoping that the westmark would be the similar. the problem with the coda is that 153 is the smallest and its a directional twin? i love the graphics though.

I hear ya on the size. But I think it being a directional twin and slightly bigger will compliment your Horror really well. I think if you get something just slightly stiffer in the same size you'll end up feeling like the boards overlap too much. Thats how you end up like me with 4 boards. Overlap. I really think that having a 151 Horror and then adding the 153 Coda will be really nice for ya. The Coda is still completely jibbable but will be much more fun outside the park on those days where you've got snow to play with.

for some reason i never though of having two boards that serve different purposes... hahahah
you make a good point, and i am trying to experiment with the back country this year.
do you think the 153 would be decent for me? im around 135 lbs... hopefully growing as im 16

I think the 153 is a good all mountain size for you in the Coda. If you're worried about gaining a lot of weight (like ending up over 150lbs in the next 2 years) I would maybe look at the Machete in 155 or the Westmark in 156. I weighed what you did when I was 16 and now I only weigh 145 (I'm 22). So for me a 153 Coda would be an awesome peak to park slayer. I could ride powder and jib that board in that size in the same day.
