50% park and 50% jumps, what board should i get?
so im looking into snowboard, coming from a skateboard and wakeboard background, im going to be doing about 50/50 on park and jumps, not much free riding, and im curious to what board i should get, i need something flexible enough for rails but stiff enough for booters

im looking into the dc pbj, it seems like an all around good board for my application, not to hard on the wallet either

i have also considered, the evil twin, k2 parkstar, and a few others, but my main instrest is the pbj

also another question i am around 140-150, 5'8, 10 boot, would the 149 be to small for booters, and would the 153 be to big for rails, what should i pick from those sizes knowing my weight, hieght, and boot

149 would prob be too small for jumps, but depends on size of jumps. I would go with a 153 or so for what you seem to want. also consider capita green machine fk, ultrafear fk. nitro T1, and of course, the forum fav, the never summer EVO. (that is a small portion of a large list of boards to consider.

I'm around your stats, 6'0 140-150, 10.5 DC Boot (they run a little small, so im really a size 10 in most other boots)and i mostly ride a 152 Nitro Subzero for park, works perfect for me, and is just fine on jumps less than 40ft.

I tried a 148 capita stairmaster for a while, and found it to be too small for my liking. hopefully this helps.

Doesnt that make that 100% park? 50% kickers 50% park(rails?, pipe?)

Thats all I have to add... I dont suggest boards...

I really like the look of the DC pbj and the price is good. I am biased though and would have to suggest a neversummer evo or revolver. K2 also has some great offerings in the parkstar and darkstar

the PBJ will be too soft to make a decent board on jumps. From DC try the Tone. Others would be the Green Machine FK, Kink, Rook, or a T1.

I'd suggest the Capita Indoor 154....

the indoor has the same flex rating as the pbj, i guess they all use a universal scale, i wish i could find a 151 pbj, that would be prime
