capita, I watched a friend break his dom first day after airing an A frame and landing on the flat. board should last a little longer than that in my opinion.

mostly park but ya know the occasional run around the resort, i think 152 should be fine don't you guys?
also i have a size 11 boot, they're ride, and say "their two sizes then the regular boot" or something like that. i read last night about people saying people wear boots that are way too big but im pretty sure 11 is my size. i went to the local shop and tried on other boots too and 11 seems right. i think the board is like 25.2 or .5 something in there is that too small?

no need for a wide board with size 11's. and the stairmasters a much better choice not just for durability issues but because while being a jib stick it is stiffer than the dom and will actually handle itself decently on the rest of the mountain.

Nope. Save the 80 bucks. Some models do change year from year but I think the stairmaster is the same stairmaster.
