Default Buttery Board...

Hey everyone,

So i'm looking to purchase a new board for next season, primarily for fooling around / buttering. I plan to primarily use it for park stuff as well (up until now I haven't really been a fan of jibbing although i'm hoping a new board will change that.) Right now i'm riding the burton Operator 2010 156, i'm 5'8 and about 140ish pounds. I love the board for free riding, although I'm looking to get a smaller, reverse cambered board to make spinning / buttering more forgiving as well as easier / more fun.

So far I've been looking into the 2011 Joystick as well as the Blunt, (I have EST bindings, the missions, so for now I'll probably have to stick with Burton boards) 150ish CM is what i'm looking at as well, as I've heard smaller boards give better spins as well as control at slower speeds.

Also I don't know if it's relevant but my boot size is 11, my current bindings are a large. (I have to position them in specific ways in order to get no heal / toe drag on my Operator, it's kind've annoying.)


Any suggestions? Do I have my facts straight?


Thanks!

-Tom

i wouldnt go smaller than a 150, but the operator is gona be stiff for jibbing, i had that board and sold it to buy my skate banana and the banana is a huge jump up. at 5'7 150pounds im ridding a 152. id check out that board or a box scratcher (i think they're a bit wider and that'd help with size 11 boots)

Right well i'm looking for a better buttering board than the operator, which was the entire point of this thread... not jibbing.

same difference. buttering is more technique than the board.

If you're going to stick with Burton just get a Whammy Bar or a Hero those are going to be the most playful although why you can't do ground tricks on any board is beyond me.
