Suggestions on a Good but Cheap Jib Deck?

Currently own a T. Rice 161.5 and I love it, but I wanna start hitting rails and want a more park oriented deck.

I still want to be able to get down the mountain though, but I dont want to spend a lot, around $200. What would be my best bet?

Also, Im kinda big... 6'2 and 210 pounds, so I'll need maybe a wide deck with my size 12's. Seems like they make all these jib boards kinda short too.

If I were you, I'd buy used. If you're jibbing the deck is going to get trashed in short time anyways, no sense in buying a garbage $200 new board if you can get a $400 one that'll already be in the same condition you'll put it in anyways.

Look for something in the 154-156 range. Check out some RC hybrids. They're pressy and playfull but still handle a lot. If its camber make sure it's twin with a mid flex.

Check on craigslist. Deals like this are everywhere.

I think I saw a Rome Garage Rocker for 200 in the evo outlet store? You might want to check some boards there
