Ramps and stuff? Are you sure you shouldn't be asking this at skateboardingforum.com? You've been only a couple of times and now want a park board? Maybe an intermediate board would be better served. Learn the fundamentals then get into park. Just my $.02.

Get a lesson on how to ride then consider going in the park. People like you get paralyzed because you don't know how to ride and go in their. True story, see it happen often all the time, then I tell the story at parties. We laugh at you, meanwhile you can't walk. I'm going to hell.

Old, and probably not what you want as it was a pro model that is not made anymore. More of a collectors item...

They should pay you 250 bucks to ride that. Rippey hasn't had a pro model in 10 years.
