Default help on a good park board for under 250

so im getting a new board this year. im pretty strapped on cash but want a good park board for <$250. im looking for a good board for the park, and the ride agenda seemed like a decent buy. i want a board that is nice and flexy, but not a wet noodle. any input helps. thanks

Thats hard, If you want a GOOD park board under 250, your best bet is to find last years gear somewhere.

Look for the k2 darkstar/Jibpan, rome agent/graft, atomic hatchet, flow era/quantum, bataleon evil twin, salomon scout, ride dh, and I'm sure I missed something, but that should get you started.

Look for a last years atomic hatchet. You can usually find them for like 150 to 200 bucks check out froogle.com to see if it can help locate something for you.

most of the boards previously listed dont come in my size . im only 5' 3-4" and 100 pounds, but im growing pretty fast. the hatchet comes in a 145 but i think that size will be too short for me fairly soon. what board would anyone recommend for someone my size
thanks for the input

Look for a 149ish would be my guess maybe even a 151.

Because its a generalized chart. That probably goes off your height.
