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.
Housemate has a Custom, and let me tell you, that is NOT a jib/park deck AT ALL. I wouldn't take that thing NEAR the park.

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.

If your looking to do jibs and butters and the such, the kink is a great deck. If your looking to do larger-feature jumps, consider something a touch stiffer. Really flexable boards have a tendency to wash-out when landing big jumps. This will also be further exaserbated by the fact that you are right on the cusp of the board's weight limit. Also, it won't "shake" at high-speeds, it will just throw you to the ground.

Weight and boot size are the keys.

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.
