Just like everybody else....Which Board?

Hey Everybody, I have been riding for 10+ years, mostly East coast and I am looking into getting a park stick. I don't necessarily need a stick of butter(skate banana, K2WWW) however I still want enough playability to mess around from the schoolyard to the box. I am 5'10 and weigh 185-190 with a size 11 boot. I don't have too much trouble with regular deck width however it is still a concern. I currently ride an Alibi with Cartels(awesome setup), and for a straight mess around stick an M3 Heartbreaker 151(horrible board)with 390's. These are the following boards I have been looking into...

Never Summer Evo-R/Revolver(wider)
Rome Graft
Ride DH/Kink
Atomic Hatchet/Axum


I am open to any and all suggestions and or more board ideas however I do want to pull the trigger for this season! Lastly what size should I push? I have fun on that 151 however I would be real scared to take it off a good size booter/kicker. Thanks in advance...

Travis

All those boards would be good...

151 at your size though would most likely be a pure park board...that seems rather small for someone of your size...maybe someone else can chime in though..

Thanks for the reply, yes my 151 is way too small for what I am looking for but I do not want to have to muscle around my board on rails boxes etc. I think 154 is the smallest I will be looking into and 156/7 on the high side...agreed?

capitas a nice choice..also agree with the 151 range...im 5'7 and like a 154 but it tad feels long in the park but perfect on the mountain..i would go for 153 if i was in the market but a 154 does the trick, i wouldnt go 151 again..

Agreed...at your size i dont think you'd have much trouble throwing around a 154 if you wanted to do some park...

I have read a lot of good things about both the Evo-R from Shay and some others that are big park riders, as well as the Ride DH from other sources..never ridden either though.

Haven't heard much about capita boards other than their existence...but am always willing I will take a look at the horrorscope if i can still get one locally since its limited production/hot ticket
