It's a soft entry-level board, so it'll be good for park.

Local Boarder If you can, hit up some demo days....If you cannot, then do some research (forums,reviews etc.). Narrow down your selection and buy something YOU believe is the right board for you and your style. Then thank me later.

legallyillegal it'll be similar to a darkstar

it's basically the same thing as the Brigade

unhip_crayon Wow, this is awesome!

Would this be a good board for park?


EDIT* He's replied to my email and he told me that he purchased it last year brand new...just a fyi

legallyillegal $600 CAD when bought brand new isn't robbery, either.

Burton gets marked up in Canada over the US prices, K2 remains about the same.

arsenic0 Good to know legally..i still think its overpriced...

Admittedly i can only find 1 site on the entire internet selling this board and its a 152 but it looks like its going for 220 bucks brand new. Freestyle bindings are like 65 bucks new for 2009's...

I'd offer him 175-200 bucks for the board + him the prices for new gear and he should take it considering its used, 300 is absurd thats more than new. If he paid 600 he got robbed or has some really expensive boots...

Actually, it wasn't discontinued (well it was, but was somewhat brought back), but it doesn't appear in the K2 catalog.

That board is a 2009 AStar 159 Wide, and actually has a structured base, which isn't common on an entry-level board like the AStar.

$300 CAD for the boards+bindings+boots isn't bad.
