K2 WWW info

looking at getting a K2 www and was wondering if anyone has one and if they like it... ill be using it for park and just riding the basic trails. Also what size should i get cause it say you can go smaller than usual....right now i have a 159 artec but it feels to long for me and stiff. Im 5'10 - 5'11 ish and weigh 165-170lbs. Thanks in advance

i just grabbed last year's online for like $230 + $15 shipping. Can't wait for it to snow! I'm 6'1" 195-200lbs and i got the 156 because I saw it said you can go about 5cm smaller than normal. played around on the carpet and it feels pretty good. lots of flex! this thing might as well be amish because i think it's going to be a butter machine

they size down 5cm... so a 152 will ride like a 157... but it only has the swing weight of a 152. So the board will be quicker to maneuver for those techy park tricks.
i guess the down fall is that it will be a little loosey goosey at super high speeds. but in all honesty i dont have many instances of that.

youll dig how fun it is.

maybe i should mention that this will only be my second board. I was looking to go down to a 155cm board but found this board at my local shop for a great price but idk if the 152 will be too short or should i get the 155?...I want a nice playfulboard that ican mess around on, i dont do too much park since im still kind of a beginner but i plan on getting into it. I want to be able to butter, hit small jumps and be able to still do all the trails with my friends and go through the trees. will this board work or should i look at the parkstar?

parkstar is just a beefed up www.....

like i said they shave the tip and tail a bit... so a 152 is actually more like a 157. between a 152 and 155 wont be a huge diffrence.
