Default What are the best park boards? HELP

Hey, i'm 6 foot and weigh 140 lbs, and im searching for a really good park/jibbing board. Ideally one that has a good flex/pop. I just ride park. I would like it to be twin and regular camber because i've been told it has the best pop. I dunno what the best size is but i want something a little smaller, maybe between the 152-154 range...? Can you tell me if you know any good boards that fit my description?

Signal Park. 152 will work. Camber, thick edges, sintered base, enough pop for jumps but soft enough to jib. Also a great price.

Bataleon Whatever or Airobic for a soft fun board, Evil Twin for a stiffer jump board. I also liked the K2 parkstar I rode, flexy with some good pop and decent edge hold on ice. I think the next board I'll try is a white 151 blank rocker board, $200 and it seems decent, unless I can find a good used 150-155 Whatever. There's lots of other good stuff out there, I just don't have any experience with it. With your weight you should go probably ride 147-153 for a park board.

Thanks, ya im thinking about getting a k2 park board. I tested the flex on the k2 www and it flexed like crazy. I think it was the 155w, so i assume the flex will be the same for the 151 or 154. Not sure which one to get. But i was looking at the k2 fastplant on the internet and it has more featured tech like the ollie bar, but i don't like the design. Hmm... Oh, i forgot to add, my boot size is 10.5, should i get a w? because i dont what my binding digging in the snow when i carve.

I like the K2 parkstar not a reg camber board but a flat base with rocker tips and still could take it out of the park if need be. Dont get a wide with 10.5 you will be fine as long as you ride duck.

So then you're not locked into camber?

If so and you want snap check out the Arbor Westmark/Blacklist, Signal Park Flat, Nitro Rook, Salomon Drift Rocker, or the Bataleon Whatever.

Fastplant was good, but there are those that ride just as well for cheaper. If you snap boards a lot that's where the Fastplant is a good option.
