Just wait for Nevik I'm sure he will suggest some super solid boards for ya.

Thanx for the info, I always hear good things about NS Proto... ill check out the Kink and Mechete

The wonk btw comes in camber or a camrock type reverse camber.





The zany has overall camber with rocker inbetween the feet.

Any mid flex park stick will do. Anything but a super noodle will handle 20 ft jumps, even then it shouldn't be a problem if you know how to jump. My go to park stick has been the signal park flat, great snap off the lip and the flat profile locks nicely onto rails

well truth be told its not really stiff and if u can at least get the front part of the board a good 7 inches you will still get amazing pop.

Arbor Westmark, Bataleon Whatever or GW, Flow Era or Shifty, Rome Shank is you're not worried about deep snow, Endeavor Color is you never hit anything over 40ft, Nitro Swindle or stiffer the Rook, Echelon Franken or if you never hit anything over 30ft the Rounds.

If you're 120-150lbs buy my Shifty. Cheapest deal you'll find. Sigged.
