Default What board??

Kay guys I know this question is asked way too much but what board should i get for this winters season? I have already asked this question twice but didnt get a straight answer.

Im looking for a park board that will do good on the jibs and jumps. Im mostly into grinds but this season I'm looking to get into jumps also. Theres no real price range im looking at but not overly expensive you know?

Stats

6 foot 1
14 years old so still growing
135 pounds

Thanks guys for your imput hopefully I can finallize what board i will be getting. Also if you wouldnt mind, could you suggest some bindings?

It's hard to recommend a board for jibbing and jumps. Jump boards should be stiffer and jib boards should be soft.

You will have to compromise by getting a mid flex.

Some boards to consider:

Rome Agent Rocker

Ride Machete

K2 Darkstar

Lib Tech Skate Banana

As for sizing, you are tall for your weight. The weight scales on these boards will have to be ignored in your case. It's alright though, you're still growing so that's good. For the boards I mentioned, look at getting something in the 155-157 range.

The perfect board for your weight and boot size is a Capita Mid-Life 155...it's a wicked park board with an aggressive sidecut.

Bataleon Fun Kink 157. We are going to be giving one away shortly through a drawing here on the forum. See if you get lucky on that drawing and if not be sure to demo one. You won't find a better board for your specs.
