Ride Crush would be another option, slightly stiffer than the Kink and with Lowrize rocker it is quite buttereable

Look at a Lib Tech or GNU board with Magne-traction, they do really well in crappy conditions.

For pure ground tricks I don't think you can beat bataleon. Get an airobic,whatever, disaster, or fun kink. In that order, airobic is best and FK is hardest for ground tricks, disaster is a noodle. Bataleon is best for learning because of how loose it is, once you get REALLY good you might want a normal RC/hybrid to get a bit less slide/more edge hold. I ride my ET on ice no problem, a bit less grip than the k2 parkstar or jibsaw I demo'd but not bad at all, almost no difference after I sharpened the edge real good. The ET is a bit stiffer than the FK or whatever but I can hold the nose about a foot high for 100+ feet on a tail press, I'm 5'11'' 170, 154 ET

So I think im leaning towards the Arbor Draft or Bataleon Airobic

I've read some good reviews on these, plus I found a few places where I can get them below retail. Any thoughts? Any other boards that I should consider based on what im leaning towards?
