Default question for the freestylers..

i wanna buy a freestyle board , cause i like doing tricks and i like flexy light boards..but i didnt find taller than 156 and ive never seen a taller fresstyle board i guess. and i am 193 , what would happen if am speeding down a steepy slope? would it be disasterous? am good at high speeds and sharp turning. will i fall ? or get no response? my old board was 165 so would that 9 cm less do harm ? plz elaborate if u know about the subject.

My old Ride Tempest was a 156 and even though it as super light, that thing was super unstable when bombing down the mtn.

The Rome Anthem comes in a 159 and the Agent offers a 158.

my choices are few , due to budget and theres few brands at my country, i was thinking of the ride kink . but they say its for jibbing..and its so flexy and we dont have parks . so i dont know i have a week to make my mind. my 2nd choice is fleetwood series.. cant afford more money . but i want a fresstyle board. so will the kink make me fall in steep speedy runs? does anyone ride it?

In your situation I would go with an "all mountain freestyle" type board. You'll have the jack of both worlds but master of none type thing. They'll be the most versatile boards out there compared to an "all mountain specific" or "park specific" board. They're typically decently weighted which will allow you to throw the spins downn, however, stiff enough to reduce the vibrations and chatter of all mountain riding. Granted sliding rails won't be as easy compared to a park board but it can still do the job. As was said, take a look at the Rome Anthem. It's a great versatile board. In fact I use an Anthem 156 and love it.
