Default blah blah new board thread

Looking for a new board to replace my 2011 highlife. I want something a bit softer as i felt like the highlife was a bit one dimensional.

Needs to be good in pow and not as stiff as the HL, would like some level of dampening but doesn't have to be great in that department.

6'6", 2001bs, 13 boot, paired with rome targas.

I want a twin in shape and stance but if the tail is stiffer than the nose that is fine.


These are the boards that i think fit my needs and are in my price range.

161w machete, perfect?

162w buckwild, to park oriantated and not enough rocker?

162w agent rocker, i have a board with the same rocker profile so i wouldn't mind trying something different.

162 dirty pillow, seems interesting and kinda sounds like its a arbor board, i have never owned a full rocker board before.

162w Riders choice.

Also, take a look at the Skunk Ape. It's the wide version of the Lib Tech TRS.
Never Summer Legacy similar to the SL but wider.
Never Summer Proto comes in a wide version.

Skunk Apes is not just a wider version of the TRS, there are other differences - SA is directional and quite a bit stiffer.
