Cool Is the Ride Kink a Good option?

Hey guys i have been looking around for boards just online. I am a intermediate advanced rider. I do like steep stuff but also want a good park board. Is the ride kink a good park board as well as a good mountain board. I also saw that their was a wide version and a regular version and i don't know which ones for me. I have also heard from some people that ride boards are common to breaking but thats just what i have heard.
If you have any other board choices plz also let me know.
Im 5'6 135 lb. and want a board with a little growing room
thx

My last board was a ride kink. it was a jib stick, not a mountain board by any means. and i cracked the fuck out of it. i loved it.

Where do you ride? It could handle my little mountain in central new york okay, but it probably can't handle much more than that. It just gets too floppy

If the kink is still like the kink i used to ride if you're only hitting SOME rails, I'd suggest not getting the Kink. It's a jibstick and really isn't great on larger jumps and mountain riding. I'll let some of the other guys hop in here and help out

Ya i wouldn't suggest the kink unless you have another board in your quiver. For you i would recommend an arbor blacklist. Heard some amazing things about it.
