To be blunt, with a $250 price range you're not gonna get anything more than a basic camber or rocker board with no bells or whistles. Being the start of a new season you'll also be hard pressed to find anything on sale as most of last year's stock has already been sold off.

Don't know anything about that board you mentioned, but if it's within your board length range, grab it and get to riding. All the lower tier boards tend to ride similar to each other regardless of brand... with maybe a variation in flex.

Edit: Wait... what? 100lbs on a 152cm? You seriously want something in the 140's if possible.

Damn, I finally found another rider smaller than me, but getting back to the point I weigh about 20 pounds more than you and I ride a 151cm, i also feel that it might be a little big for park. That being said if i were you i would be looking at about a 145 or something along those lines

Wells hers the problem I've been growing like a weed... I've 2 inches and gained 12lbs in the last months... And I agree but it's big but I have a 145 five right now and it's getting increasingly awkward....

Believe me, anything over 150 is going to be hard as balls for you to control. If you REALLY want to go bigger you could try maybe a 148, but thats the absolute biggest I'd go. You're not going to find much in the performance category with that price range. How long have you been riding/what's your skill level? Park, race, or all-mountain?

Start looking at older models, or slightly used setups as those are going to give you a much better bang for the buck. Is this only for the board, or bindings also?

there's a few park-ish boards at Evo in your price range.
