looking for a new park board

height 5'10
Weight around 155
Boot size 10
Age 18 probably not growing anymore
budget under 500

looking for a park board that can handle up to 30 footers yet still buttery enough to mess around on. im on the east coast so you guessed it....pretty much no powder what so ever. i would say im an intermediate park rider and i can bomb blacks very easily. currently riding a 08-09 burton custom with 08-09 mission bindings. looking for a rockered board. what ever board i get i will more than likely end up with rome 390 boss bindings
boards ive looked at
never summer evo
step child jib stick
k2 www
ride machete
capita stair master extreme

thanks in advance

also i would like some insight on my board waxing problems. ive been having to wax my board everytime i go out. one of my edges is drying up after one day of riding. i may have damaged the base as it looks like there is a scuff for about 5-6 inches on one side of my base

personally I havent had any experience with any of those boards, but if you look around a little, you would find that most everyone would tell you to get the evo if you can afford it...

you seem like a more experienced than I, but I personally have the EVO with the rome 390 bosses. I would def. recommend it for someone looking for a park board that is stable enough to hit jumps and carve down the mountain in all sorts of situations/snow.

Also, I am in the east coast sorta (Virgina haha), and so far it has handled great in hard-pack.

Good luck with your search!

friend of mine rides a 2011 jibstick... rode it for a few hours and loved it... more-so than the capita stair master i've demo'd anyhow. as for the others. i've never tried an evo but heard good things... the k2 and the ride wouldnt be my first choice in that selection for sure though.

So far my favorite park boards are the Signal Park, Signal Omni, CAPiTA Green Machine FK, Arbor Westmark, Flow Era, Salomon Drift rocker, or an Omatic Celebrity or ExtrTxtr.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Scuff usually means it's a sintered base without wax. It's probably because you use a soft wax so it'll be scraped away when doing turns. You probably stop up on your heel edge alot before hitting a box or rail? You should use a harder wax on the edges. Or it's because you can't get the wax properly into your base.

Or try giving your board a second soak of wax. Assuming your ironing on, spread your wax just like you would normally, let it dry for a bid, then come back drip more wax around the edges and re spread. This helps the wax really get down deap into your base.

Been having similar issues. Think I'll have to try this. Stretch out the pre-boarding ritual some. Anyone else really enjoy waxing their board? I find it relaxing for some reason. Probably just getting high off the citrus wax cleaner. :P
