park board choice question
 
I have been boarding 4 years, and spent last 3 years have been on 2010 ride dh...really like it but, now i spend 80% of my time in the park on boxes and rails, and always on groomed hills when not in park.

a. keep my what i am used to...2010 ride dh...$0...camber...
b. 2012 flow verve $170..new..ez rock rocker
c. 2012 rome artifact rocker $181..new....rocker
d. 2011 forum youngblood chilidog...used...but great shape...full rocker....and only $95 bucks

Thoughts on what to choose? Is it really worth the trouble to change...Will I notice it easier to do boxes and rail or not really?

I would go with the forum youngblood! Its a great jib/park board and it doesnt catch edges at all

Although the Youngblood sounds like a steal for the price, I'm a sucker for the Verve. It's a super fun board and it dominates the park. I own a revolver myself, but convinced my buddy to pick up the verve so we could swap decks every once in a while. I love it.

Check out this review from BA.

If the DH isn't too big I'd stick with that. One of my fav park boards of all time.

I am about 175-180lbs and it is a 157...So while it could be a bit smaller not too bad...It is a bit of a dilemma cause the ride dh is great, but somewhat stiff. And I don't really know how much benefit I would see with more flex. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.....just found out the youngblood is gone...down to keeping the dh, the verve, or the artifact.

Well if you're looking to add a rocker to your quiver, I'd recommend the Artifact. But I would still keep the DH for your more aggressive days on the hill.

Is the Capita Horrorskope something you might consider? It's one of the best park boards out there.
