Help Picking a Park Board!!!!
 
:dunno: So Im stuck on a decision. I want to buy a new park board this week and I'm stuck on the size and brand. I am about 5'5-5'6 so I was thinking a 147? I sized my self up at cbs board shop and it seemed right. I ride aggressive park and some jumps. More so the rails boxes and other fun little knick knacks. I was thinking of getting either the k2 WWW Jib Rocker, or ordering the Contract Citizen Shred. Which one is the better board? I like how the WWW has the shaped nose and tail for jibbing as the Citizen Shred is rounded all the way. They are both around the same price, PLEASE HELP!!!!!:)

Neither? Don't know about the contract, but they do have promise. And the Weapon is honestly overpriced.

Ride Kink, Bataleon Disaster, Salomon Salomonder, Signal Park Flat, Nitro Swindle, Echelon Rounds, or an Arbor Draft.

Those are some of my favorite jib sticks.

What do you mean by promise? and as far as price, I work at dicks sporting goods so i get both for mad good price, 200 for the k2 and 206 for the contract cause of our pro deal sites.

Skate Banana?

I've been doing some research myself on a park board for mostly jibbing and I came down to pretty much what Nivek suggested. Of those ones, I liked the Disaster the most. The TBT tech seems really cool. I haven't bought or ridden one yet, but hopefully I can demo a Disaster sometime soon.

Just based on the tech in it, I'm sold though. lol

What about the Nima jalali? That's at CBS

how much do you weigh? your height doesnt have much to do with the size board you ride

I weigh about 165, the reason I was debating on either the k2 or contract is because i can get both for a little over 150 as supposed to paying full price for another board, I love Lib Tech but don't want to drop that kind of cash right now.

I personally would lean more towards the K2. 147cm at 165 pounds is a short stick

Holy shit when will people realize the skate banana is NOT a jib board and just a shitty board all around.
