So, I've been boarding for about 8 years now and I've been pretty casual. This season I've been more and more interested in getting into the park. Having said that, my current setup is definitely not suitable for the park. I am 5'10" and weigh about 135-140. Any board/binding suggestions? Thanks.
I never considered salomon! Damn, that's actually my second choice after the Forum Youngblood Doubledog. I stay away from rails too haha. Thanks so much!
The Youngblood is a sick board. The only issue with it would be Forum's going out of business at the end of this year, so you may have issues with the warranty process IF the board ended up breaking on you.
With that said, check out the Horrorscope/Ultrafear and Stairmaster/Stairmaster Extremes from Capita. All those boards are great for park, and your personal preferences will narrow your search down from those four decks to one or two.
Just found an article on it, so basically, Burton's "Program Brands" (Forum, Four Square and Special Blend) are all dead. BUT, Burton will be providing "Current winter 2013 product will be supported over the next year, via warranty, dealer, marketing and inventory support." Link to article is at end of post if anyones interested.
