Default Need a flexible and lightweight board

I used a skate banana last season and felt that it wasnt for me. The flex wasn't that soft and it was a rather 'medium' board when it came to weight. I'm looking for something light and flexible so I can do my spins more easily and hit rails and jumps.

My bindings are union force btw.


So overall, a board thats really light and flexible that I can easily do my 540's and hit rails, and jib nice and easily


Any suggestions? Lets keep it under 600 if we can

What difference does board weight make? out of curiousity.

Will you be bootpacking this noodle?

It's for my lift off. It doesn't usually make a difference, but I would like my next board to be something lighter than a banana definitely.

Not bootpacking.

I was looking at the Rome reverb rocker. what you think?


Oh and I would like to pop wheelies when in the mood for messing around like that. I was barely lifting the banana even when I was bending all the way back.. I don't like that.

what do you suggest?

-light
-soft/noodle
-excllent for jumps
-rail and box dominator

forget weight. nobody knows or cares what boards weigh.

in a general sense, a heavier board might very well be more durable. I know of several examples where this is true. Durable boards are desired for jibbing.

you could bring a scale with you to a shop...

Arbor Westmark which is a bit more on the all-mountain park side or Arbor Draft which is very soft. Very lightweight boards as well.
