i rode the park star almost all last season, and i love it! it has a real forgiving feel, which was nice in the park. buttering and presses are so easy on it(because of the jib rocker), it handled pretty nicely on jumps. its awesome on jibs and rails. out of the park it was fast, but at high speeds you get chatter in the tip and tail(because of the jib rocker) but it doesnt really effect anything. it rides pretty well in powder.
i would recommend it

I have the Parkstar as well and 100% agree!!!

A size 12 boot will definitely need the wide version. Who cares how it looks. All that matters is how it performs. Besides it will be covered by snow 90% of the time anyway.

donot have to do a wide... if you duck to atleast 15 degrees youll be fine... but you can ride wide if you want. i rode a 152 www with 12 boots for years
(non wide)

Man I wish I had this input when I asked this last season haha

I wear a 12 as well and it just feels more comfortable for me but I ride a duck of 9. Also this is the usual" don't go with looks but get what's comfortable for you" but do it.
