Ride Kink

Ok Im 5'2" 150 ... looking at a barely used 2011 Ride Kink board. Its a 147. Is that big enough for me? Anyone ride this and have suggestions? have it rides best, etc. I prefer an all-around board that I can dabble in the park and charge the mountain. The guy is asking $300 with forum pro edition bindings. Anyone know about these bindings and the price?

Thanks for the help..cant find many reviews on this board but i have been liking the reviews on other Ride boards

The size is about right but the price is way too much. It isn't great for all mountain either

I was just reading on it and it seems to dominate the park. Yeah I know they are $360 or so new, but with the prices on everything coming down and quickly... I figured $300 is a bit much too.

Too small. I would only jib concrete with that board in that size. Not what you want.

Ride Kink is meh, and that price is insane. Size is too small for all mtn. Kinks are everywhere...and there are a lot better options for boards suited to your style. May be tough to find used though ?

Lots of great deals out there... but you gotta add $75 for shipping to Alaska. We dont have alot locally... I am headed down to Anchorage in a couple weeks and there is a Peter Glenn and REI there.

That's way too much. I saw a brand new one going for $220 a couple months ago. I ride the Kink and it's a fun mediocre board. Mine is a 156W and it does me good. I never charge down the mountain to begin but the few times I did it's pretty squirly. Not a butter board but squirly.I weight 155. A 147 for you would be even worse. Also this might not be relevant but the top sheet on mine is absolutely falling apart. The area underneath my bindings is almost completely white. Idc for cosmetics but that shouldn't be happening. Poor quality out of China, or "Peoples Republic of China"..... It's going to earn its spot as the rock board for next season. Other than that I am happy with it.

Pretty sure you can just order off of the REI website and have it sent to the one you will be near.

I rode the old Kink 155 from 2007 maybe when it was still a traditional camber board (the black and white skull/bird skull one) and I loved it.. Haven't ridden any of the new ones but people I talked to like them. I'd agree that $300 is way too much as well.. I'd be willing to bet that last years model brand new is less than that and probably the same tech..
