Default Park/Cruiser board?

Hey,

New to the forums.

Alright so last year i did a lot of research to find a board but never got a chance to pick one up, so this year i noticed some new things coming out.

I'm looking for a park board mainly for jibbing, going to be sticking to boxes mostly, and a little bit of jumps not big air. Also something that's decent with just cruising since lot's of my friends don't ride park, they just ride the slopes.

to cut it short: Board more for park but decent for riding around with friends

Was looking at the ride kink, and basically around a $500 budget

Or he could spend $100 less and get something probably better...

Kink is a really good choice. Also look at the Flow Era, Signal Park, CAPiTA Green Machine FK, Arbor Westmark, or a DC Tone.

I'm liking my K2 Parkstar so far this season for the type of riding you describe.

you say that, and personally i dont think that is true. all preference my friend. he also has a 500 dollar budget so i see no problem suggesting it. the skate banana is an excellent park oriented cruiser. and i personally love magne traction. because it actually works. cheers mang.

are teh 2011 skate bananas any different from the 2010? This and the GNU park pickle were the key board i was eying last year. If there isn't much difference then might as well go for a cheaper 2010 board.

no difference past graphic b/w the '10 and '11 model. the park pickle is pretty much the same, but has an asymmetrical side cut so its easier to hit heel side turns
