Park Board Help a Brother Out
 
So I've already got an all mountain deck that's great in shit weather (LibTech T. Rice 161.5) and next season I'd like something a bit more fun and tossable. I don't do much park, but I'd like to practice some. Rocker vs camber don't care. Learned on a Burton Clash, rode my friends Ride Antic a ton, have a hybrid board now so it's whatever to me. I'm 6"2, 195, and a size 11 (although I'm about to hop to a 11.5) boot.

So here's what I'm thinking:

Arbor Westmark, Draft, or Blacklist
Burton Nug
Bataleon fun.kink

I'm open to anything really, besides another Lib board (love mine just want a new toy). Hook a brother up so I can keep an eye out on these sales.

Hey brother, get a 160 mid wide Rossi Jibsaw and you'll thank me for it. I also have a T. Rice 161.5 HP and now that I have this I'm selling the T. Rice. Jibsaw is loads of fun. So far its been great for jibbing, jumping, while still have solid edge hold and not being noodly. I'll miss my Rice, but I think Im gonna go with a TRS next to fill that spot in my quiver. Just not a fan of the stiffness in the T. Rice.

Hrm, you mean the 159? I don't see a 160 available. But I started on a 157 anyway so that's fine. I see it has magnetraction too, so a similar profile to the T. Rice? Looks intredasting. Any other inputs people?

Been having a blast on my Lib-Tech Skate Banana for some time. I use a TRS 162 for All Mountain but my Skate Banana 159W (which is more like a mid-wide) is amazingly fun and feels almost 100% catch free edges. Makes for a fun board to toss around the mountain. Pretty tough too, had it for three seasons and been riding the shit out of it.

Here's what the board finder turned up, in order of match:
Process 162 (100%) CAMBER
Super Hero 157 (also 100%) FLAT TOP ROCKER
Super Hero 158W (yet another 100%) FLAT TOP ROCKER
Sherlock 163 (92%) FLYING V (A hybrid)
Sherlock 162W (92%) FLYING V
Mystery 162 (87%) FLYING V

Keep in mind the Super Hero is pretty much a jib Nug.

The Super Hero though isn't quiet as playful right? The Nug can jib pretty well already can't it? It's pretty damn soft and has jumper cable tech etc. I want something kind of fun, and I'm worried the Super Hero kind of loses the fun between the focused decks like the Joystick and the toy decks like the Nug or Harvest.

Re: Park Board Help a Brother Out
 
Eh, I guess.....It's a little more park focused than the Nug.

Ever ridden one? Got two cents on it?

Hrm, and do I go wide with it? I'm a size 11 I think I can fit just fine on the regular.
