Default New board... need advice

Hey everyone...

I need some board advice...

I've been boarding for a few years now, but the past year I started getting into the trick park area and love it. However i have a cheap cheap board I bought on ebay long ago. It was fine to learn on... but not only is it getting beat up but it weights a metric ton lol.

I've been doing some research and I have ideas of decks that I might be interested in but I'm looking for some advice on a good board to hit the park with. I'm looking for something a little lighter and some good flex... but at the same time something that I could still take down hill with my girlfriend that ski's and not so much into the trick park area.

This might not really be possible... I might be contradicting myself, but if you have any suggestions I'd love to here them.

I have no problem spending money on a board that can give me what I'm looking for... so whatever you got... LET'S hear it...

Thanks...

Look at stuff in the all mountain freestyle category. I'm a huge fan of the never summer sl, k2 jibpan, k2 darkstar. I put up a huge review with like 75 boards in it in the review section you could look at that as well.

The k2 jibpan was actually one of the boards i was looking at...

The other one I was thinking about was the "Gnu Street Series BTX" but I was thinking it's a little more on the "trick only" side of things.

I'll check out you reviews thanks...
