Talking New board for all mountain and park

Hey Everyone, I am thinking of getting a new board for the 2012 season. I am 5,5 and 115 pounds. will be riding about 60% of the time in the park and the rest cursing around the mountain.

I am thinking about the Never summer Evo in a 150, but don't know if it will be to park oriented and the nitro Team Gullwing, cause i like the shape of gullwing

Cheers

Evo is very park oriented. Either board is a very versatile park stick. Are you going to gain more weight? If not, I would size down a little, maybe a 147 Evo.

Well the Gullwing doesn't come small enough for you.

Unless you decide to play football you likely wont get bigger than 160lbs. So. I would look at the 150 range. Just below for the cheaper decks cause you'll want a new one by the time you outgrow it anyhow.

150 Signal Park Flat, 148 Salomon Drift Rocker, 150 Bataleon Whatever, or a 149 Flow Verve. 4 of my favorite versatile park board for 2012.

So far YES has been pretty hit or miss. Mostly miss. The Park Flat is one of my persoanl favorites and with some little tweaks is probably going to be my go to board for this year. It's jjibby and playful but maintains enough substance to hold it on jumps and outside the park. The Verve is one of the most underrated park decks on the market. Its a hybrid camber/rocker/camber more like Gullwing than RC and then between the feet the base is rolled like the Nitro SubZero. It's jibbable, jumpable, and the sidecut might be my favorite on the market.

How old do you have to be to demo? I would like to demo this year, but the kicker is, I am only 14.
