Default New Board

I have a current board setup which is as follows:
Burton 2010 Deuce 162W
Burton Restricted L Mission Bindings

I am wanting to learn park stuff like more freestyle tricks so am I able to progress with this board or should I invest a secondary board or could I still do some learning on this board? Also, I need a new pair of goggles so what brand/model should I look at?

You will want a smaller board than that

what size boots? do you need a wide? or could you get away with a normal board, depends on the type of board you get but anything between 155-160 would be my guess for a park board. Would you do other riding with it or strictly park?

I'm 6ft and 210-215lbs ride 161-164 for all mtn, but 157/158 seems to be the sweet spot for me for park boards.

What type of board do you ride then? Any companies you suggest for specifically park?

I know alot of guys on here love neversummer, so you would checkout their revolver or the legacy the revolver is their straight park board but the legacy would give you a bit more all mountain feel and with you being a big guy might help with stability on jumps and such, dont quote me on that though

The Revolver might be a good place to start I have not ridden it, but it is basically the "wide" version of the Evo (their park board). The Legacy is the wide version of the general-purpose SL.

Are you looking for one board to do everything, or are you thinking maybe about getting a board that will be primarily used for park riding?
