Question What have I got here? ('09 ride kink 155)

I got this board right before the end of the season, and only rode it for about 2 days before the snow all melted.

I didn't really do any park at all last season, but now that I'm to the point where I can ride the whole "mountain" (live in ohio) without a problem, I decided that it's time to do something.

Anyway, I was wondering if this is a good board for me to get into the park with, and what I should expect from it.

specs:
155cm ride kink (idk what year)
rome 390 sds bindings

ht/wt:
i'm 6'2", at about 120-125 lbs.
This is what I'm not sure about, since I don't exactly weigh a lot.

any and all help is appreciated

I'm not the most knowledgeable by any means but from what I hear the Kink is a good jibstick, not too great on bigger jumps and all mountain. I've never ridden one but I know that a lot of people like them a lot in the park.

great park deck...soft, playfull making it perfect for jibs, but still holds up alright on jumps and cruising the mountain...little chattery on chopped up steeps and maybe a lil washout if your hitting 40+ footers...all in all, as a board to get you into park riding, i think its perfect
