As for the reviews, the meant that it holds fair for a FREESTYLE deck, not compared to something like a Custom. Really soft boards become unstable at speed. It's just a fact of what they are. Also, like I said before, the kink is a jib/butter deck. Even the Ride web site says it is "designed with the rail kid in mind." If you want to hit big jumps, or do some all-mountain riding, something a little stiffer might be helpful. The Kink is DESIGNED to be a RAIL deck, nothing else.

man you made me sad, i read reviews about it that it holds fair to good on high speeds. whatever. i don't know what to buy now. i can't pay more than 350 $. i know that the perfect board for me is burton custom but its for around 600$ or more. i just wish i can try the kink once. my other choice is ride fleetwood but i am sick of heavy boards i really need a Freestyle board.
but man , i don't think it'll throw me on the ground , i mean come on if i don't do something stupid at high speed i won't fall ,and i have been snowboading for 4 years i think i can manage not to fall. i am not a speed maniac although i get really insane speeds on my present board ,now with the kink i'll just need the speed to hit the jumps.

|blasphemy||am buying it because its a light flexy freestyle / jibbing board and i wanna do jibbing and hit jumps and do all the tricks , but we dont have a park over here ,and if it shakes at high speed i am ok with that|

|blasphemy||i dont think the boot size is a problem coz am riding a board with the same width 25.5 ,so i think am going for it. any other inputs??|

Weight: You need a board that will flex properly in relation to your weight.
Boot Size: You don't want your toe/heel to overhang too much.
