Default Suggestions For New Board For Ground Tricks

So I am looking to get a new board since my Horrorscope was stolen last month . Previously I was riding a Sierra Reverse Crew (first reverse camber board). This board will mainly be for ground tricks since I am trying to get down like the riders from Japan. I do want something that will also be good on the mountain no matter the condition. Last season, riding my Horrorscope in icy conditions was horrible.

All in all, I want something I can freestyle with throughout the mountain. I may hit also hit small to medium kickers, and eventually would like to ride more in the park. I'm 5'8, 175 and have been riding 153-155

All suggestions are welcome!

Never summer Sl. All mountain ripper but very good soft flex. I just got one and couldn't believe how soft it was but could hold up at high speed

signal rocker light might also be an option and is a little cheaper.

The SL isn't stiff but isn't that soft. The Evo is softer yet isn't that soft. You need a noodle almost to do what those japanese dudes are doing.

I think they were using a lot of signal boards but I may be wrong.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I checked out the Signal Rocker & Rocker Light. One review I read said that this is better suited for being a park only board. Anyone here have the Rocker and use it all over the mountain?

I was also looking at the Arbor Westmark or Draft. Any idea how these compare to a Never Summer SL or Signal Rocker?

the park pickle is a super fun board for ground tricking, but lacks in any sort of deep or tracked out conditions.. it's a noodle.

As for Arbor:

Ground tricks = Draft

All Mountain = Westmark




I personally would take the SL out of the picture.

You can definitely butter it up with the Westmark. I'd go Signal Park Zero, K2 WWW, Arbor Draft, Nitro Swindle if you want a butter stick that can go outside the mountain.

Thanks again guys! Definitely going to look more into these suggestions.

I guess the next thing would be finding an appropriate size. Since I am using this for ground tricks, would a smaller board be better? It looks like most of these suggestions I can get either a 152/153 or 155. Again, I am 5'8 175.
