lisevolution Rome is great... the Carbon High Beam is an awesome all around board though for peeps on a budget. A bit soft from what I'm told but that should suit what you're looking for

mcgee1516 yea i'm seriously considering the Gnu Carbon High Beam now. Does anyone have thoughts on Rome? or maybe Capita?

Lasto I would like to try to take a Bananna Tech out for a ride this season. The reverse camber seems like a pretty interesting take on a board. They market it as working perfectly as a jibbing, carving, ice jumps, parks, pow, and steeps board.

djcuba908 Lib Tech Skate Bananna is a great choice, but again will take getting used to the first couple of times. However, some good options that fit what you're looking for might be the Gnu Rider's Choice or Lib Tech Travis Rice (for the Travis Rice choose a park specific size, they have sizes for park riding and sizes for pow-pow). The Lib-Tech TRS is also a good choice for people with bigger feet. However, if these boards are out of your price range, check out the Gnu Carbon Hi-Beams; they come in a ton of sizes and are a great all around choice.

boarderaholic Banana Tech/MT is try before you buy though...remember, these boards don't have your typical camber/straight edges (respectively), which means the feel of the board changes, and some people like it, some don't.

storrisch this is going to become my default mindless plug but I recommend the LibTech SkateBanana. Stiff tip and tail, good flex in the center, and magnetraction.

direct recommendation for someone your size from Pete Saari at Mervin Mfg. would be to ride a 156 SB.

mcgee1516 i had an old k2 was riciulously wide and really stiff. i would probably want something in between park and freeride flex, like something i could butter around on pretty easily but not too soft to manage.

alaric What type of K2 did you have? Are you looking for a noodley park flex, or a soft freeride flex?

Hey, im getting a new board this season and i def want something with a softer flex. My old k2 felt as stiff as a 2X4. I was first looking at a Forum destoyer but i started to hear bad things like the topsheet cracking etc., a lot of people say their qualities gone down since they got bought out by Burton. I'm looking into Rome's and possibly Burton, but im trying to steer away from Burton because pretty much all of my friends have them. I want something that has a decent amount of flex but not too much, any suggestions? im 6'1, 170, 12 boot. thanks
