Looking to get a more playful board
Right now I ride a 151 Bataleon Riot. Great board, handles speed, pipe, and jumps really well. However it's on the stiffer side and I'd like to get a board that's more playful. I've done some searching and I'm looking at the Arbor Westmark and Black list, Bataleon Whatever, and Burton Hero and Joystick. Which do you guys recommend? Also, what size? I'm an 5'6", 175lbs, size 10 boot. Intermediate skill and I ride everything.

Just got my Westmark in the other day, but have not ridden it yet. I will get back to you after this weekend.

Try for a 153 Westmark or 154 Blacklist, though those are probably pretty scarse at this point.

If you can find a Whatever that was a super fun board too.

I could not find a 154 Blacklist for the life of me and had trouble finding a Westmark in a 153, but was able to snag one.

Rome Agent 155.

Let me know if I am mistaken, but isn't the Agent more of an all park board? I could be wrong though.

He said he rides everything. The Agent used to be more park oriented. Now it's become more of an all around freestyle board.

I just got the 153 and it's pretty flexible.

Yeah I was just making sure. My buddy used to have one and all I can remember was him folding that thing over on itself with ease.

agents have always been very flexible.. i have the agent 07 and that thing is quite noodly but nothing compared to the artifact from 07..

if you want something that's super playful/noodly and strictly for jibs and butters and good for nothing else.. a few come to mind

rome artifact
bataleon aerobic
NS Evo (i think it's less noodly than the other 2)
Ride Kink (also less noodly i believe but still noodly)

damn i love using the word noodly

Not really looking for a noodle. The Riot is a really stiff board, good for going HUGE and for handling HIGH speed. I want something that can handle speed, but also playful enough to tool around on the mountain. I tried my buddies 2011 Joystick and that's kinda what I'm looking for. Seems like the Westmark fits the bill, I'll check out the Rome Agent as well. Thanks for the suggestions.
