|jdang307||I'm hopping on a westmark next year probably. Similar requirements as you. I rode a Coda and loved it. Want to hit more rails this year, but also want to be able to speed a little and hit some jumps.|

|Casual||Since you mentioned it, I have a Ride Kink and love it. It's just really strong all around, great flex and plenty of pop. I find it very stable on landings as well as on boxes/rails. The sidecut raius is also great for a somewhat wide board so you are still able to carve at pretty high speed without the flex and sidecut digging in scrubbing all your speed like a lot of park boards do. Its also pretty impressive in the pow even with my centered 23.5 stance I float in 2 feet of pow. In 20 years of riding this is the best board I have owned... and it's fairly innexpensive too!|

|killclimbz||That's funny linville. Got to think this person meant 220. At 6'9" and 120 lbs, I am imagining some sort of Close Encounters alien looking person....|

|linvillegorge||6'9" 120#? I'm gonna assume that's a typo. Even if it's 5'9" 120#, your ass needs to hit a buffet and the gym. You gonna break yourself trying to ride.|

A new board!
I would be very appreciative if some of ya'll could help me out with picking a board.
Now, about me:
I'm roughly 6'9" and 120 lbs. I guess I would qualify as a average all mountain boarder, but beginner Park Rider.
What I'm looking for is a good all around Park Board. I'll be spending the most of my time Lapping the Park, taking about 50/50 Jumps to rails/boxes. So I want a board that is soft enough to press and preform well on rails and boxes, but also will handle jumps and kickers without washing out on me.
So far I have found 3 hat I am pretty interested in. 1 being the Ride Crush, 2 being the K2-WWW and the 3rd being the Ride Kink. That being said, I am open to other suggestions that are in the same price range as the 3 boards listed.
I know this Topic has probably come up on this site 100's of times, but after Googling the 3 boards and trying to pick a board out, I thought I'd come here for maybe some beter opinions from boarders who have had experience with these boards, or similar boards.
Looking forward to hearing some opinions,
Thanks in advance!!
