Parkstar. The Turbo Dream is not a park board. It's all-mountain freestyle. It's good on the natural stuff.

It's not bad in the park, just that the Parkstar is better. More pop than TD. Fastplant is also good.

Parkstar is a little bit softer then Fastplant if I'am not wrong. For park 155 cm Parkstar would be good, friends stats - 184 lbs, 5'11 ? O better 152 cm ?

He can do either the 155 or 157. Shorter is better for jibs. For jumps, I'd choose the 157.

He's my weight and 157 would be the size I would choose for that.

The Fastplant is interesting. It's a stiffer ride (not stiff on the grand spectrum of things) than the Parkstar for sure, but because of bamboo's nature, you can definitely flex it when you load it up. It's also poppy due to this. Plus it has a 5 year warranty.

Leo,

Wil you get the opportunity to test drive the Fastplant at your test fest? I haven't been able to find much info on the board, and I am interested in hearing about the bamboo core. Thanks
