Thinking about a 2nd board for transitioning to park...
I know there are a ton of board recommendation threads, and I've read a ton of them, but haven't really figured anything out yet.
I'm an intermediate rider, who's been riding for a few years on and off (I took last season off because of a not so pleasant knee injury), but for the most part I've not spent much time in the park, except a few times hitting small jumps and small, ride on boxes, when I was tired at the end of a day riding.
My current board is an few year old Burton Custom, 151 (I'm 5'6", ~150 lbs), but I was thinking (now that I actually have a full time job) of getting another board to help me get into park riding.
I don't plan on hitting any massive jumps in the short future, I think I would be more interested in jibbing...
But there are so many options that I have no idea what to do (or to look for, not being an experience park rider). I was browsing through the Angry Snowboarder reviews for some ideas, but I wanted to know if anyone had suggestions. (I'm on the East Coast at the moment, fyi).
Random boards I've thought about include the Artifact, Artifact Rocker, Salomon Salomonder, Skate Banana, NS Evo, etc. Someone also mentioned the Bataleon Airobic or the Disaster... and the skate shop near my apt has the Lobster Jibbaord in stock, which is supposed to be the same?
I'm open to suggestions, and also info about what size board to get would be useful... I could see myself putting on some pounds up to 160 tops, assuming my eating and gym going works out.
