new board.

Yeah, so. I need a new board.

Options:

Ride Kink (loved the flex on mine)
K2 WWW
Capita Stairmaster
Rome Artifact
Forum Manual
K2 VaVaVoom

I honestly don't like the new Kink and WWW graphics (actually, i hate the new graphics), which WERE my two main choices.
Graphics aren't a big deal, I know, but these are are pretty bad this year, IMO.
Yes, the VaVaVoom is a girls board, but they're pretty sick boards.
I have slight problems with Forum, but I'm willing to overlook them if you guys think they're quality is better than what it used to be.

You guys know I'm mainly a jibber, and I love me some flex.
So, opinions will be greatly appreciated.

Much love.

life IS good.

Coming from a kink you'll find the stairmaster too stiff.

not a lot of hype on it yet, but the capita horoscope should be dope. i think its kinda like a stairmaster, with flatkick (flat btwn bidings and rocker after). its what i'm getting.

or look at a santacruz fusion TT

+1 for stairmaster

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

if the stairmaster is going to be stiff compared to what im used to, then its out of the running.

Seriously the boards to look at are the K2 WWW (rockered version also), Kink, Artifact, signal park series. Those are going to stay along the same lines of flex.
