Exclamation Park Board Help!!

Hey guys,

I've always been riding Burton but I've been told that I should expand to new companies. I rode a 151 Burton Twin last season. I've been riding for about 7 years. I am 5'9" and about 175 pounds and i wear a size 11.5. I want a board for the park and for jibs. *Mostly for jumps though*..

I've decided on either to go with the:

Ride DH**
K2 Darkstar
K2 Jibpan
Rome Graft**

** = favored

I don't know which company to go with, and I really need help with this. So please help XD!

Thanks

I'd suggest the Capita Stairmaster 152...perfect size and flex for your stats and what you're looking to do on it.

capita's an awesome brand. they're a small company and they definitely take time to interact with customers. don't be fooled into buying only from large companies. i find that being able to talk to capita pro riders on a whim (instead of just random sales reps trying to earn their money) and receiving tips and whatnot on anything from board purchases to riding advice is well worth it. plus their boards are on the lower end of the price spectrum and surely compete with more expensive equivalents, which i'm sure quite a few people on these forums and elsewhere would agree with.

i have a capita scaremaster myself, which is a stairmaster with different graphics.
