Default Another board help thread

I've made a few of these before, but I've changed my mind a little bit. I'm looking into getting a park board that can still handle the rest of the mountain. I will be primarily be using it for buttering, cruising down trails hitting natural features and 5-20 ft jumps. I'll start doing some more jibbing also. I just also want it to also be able to fly down the mountain without too many problems even if it isn't ideal.

I was looking into boards like the NS Revolver, K2 Parkstar, and LT Skate Banana, but I'm up for any more suggestions. I was also wondering how well boards like the NS Legacy, GNU Rider's Choice, and k2 Turbo Dream would be for buttering and riding park.

I guess I'm mainly undecided about what I want to compromise more. I'll go with the more all-mountain freestyle board if it can still ride park well and butter fairly easily, but if not I'd want a park board that can ride the rest of the mountain decently. I really just want the best board that is decent at everything, but not amazing at any one thing if there is any board like that.

Some of the best all arounder boards I've ridden are the Signal Omni, Nitro Rook, Forum Destroyer ChiliPop, and Arbor Westmark.

Ok I'll have to look into those as well.

I might just have to have two boards. I already have a Burton Custom, which does everything I want to do except I can't butter with it and it isn't good for jibbing because its a 165W regular camber and it's not flexible enough. I want a board to fill that void, but that can also be okay with the rest of the mountain so I don't have to switch between them so much. So of those three park boards I listed the NS Revolver, k2 Parkstar, and LibTech Skate Banana which would be best? I'll also consider others.

Btw I'm 6'4" 185 lbs, size 13 boot.

Of your three the revolver.

I'd really look at the Westmark and Omni though

I was checking them out. They look like great boards, but I don't think they come in wide.

The Omni doesn't, but the Westmark has griptech. The bump in the unblended sidecut is right under the insert pack making the board wider right there. Usually fits up to a 12 or so.
