Default burton vapor

i got a burton vapor for very cheap, but i read most things that say it isnt a good jibbing board, i was wondering what made it a bad jibbing board becasue the only thing i do is ride park and if it is durable for rails and things.

For $400 there are about 100 other board you could get that would be better for park.

Stiff as a plank. Was designed with riding the pipe in mind. You need flexy to jib, that board is anything but.

Also a honeycomb construction means there are air pillers all over the board. Easy to dent or gouge those areas. Sell it, maybe for profit, and get a better park board.

They lied. Use it for an all mtn board and buy a real park board. I suggest a model by Capita...They're really doing it right.
