It is a floppy, flacid, wet noodle of a board that has no pop and makes park rat kids have no style on presses.

But yeah, its awesome I totally recommend it!

you don't even really need to ride a noodle stick to say it isn't for the park.

flexible board = better for park
stiff board = better for pow

after that its preference on how much flex you like it to be.

not to mention the price makes it even a better park board. go ahead spend $400 on a park board.

Yeah and my point is that there is no way that I'd actually jib with a 158 or something "proper" for my weight.

How do you not get THAT?

From K2's website:
"K2's JIB TIP design integrates a longer effective edge with shorter nose and tail, allowing you to drop down 5cm in board size without losing the stability of a longer board. Perfecting jibs, butters, flips and spins has never been easier!"


So you're saying I should size UP? C'mon....

I don't get your post. Like... what are you arguing? Do you ride in pow a lot? You think that's what stiff boards are for? I don't even know what to say to that, other than I don't like riding stiff boards in pow at all.

Also, just want to say that every board is rider preference, so I understand everyone is different. I am just offering some of my experience with the WWW, if you'd rather have it in another thread, I will just start one. This is Kitten's review thread.

why can't you jib like a 153ish or around there? how did you get that i said you should size up? sizing up ain't going to make the board less fleixble. more stable most likely.

maybe i should of put mid but mid would go both ways.... i put "stiffer" that can range from mid to upper


i've already seen one of your other post and already know how you feel but wth. everyone knows the board is a noodle and you act like your all surprise about it. and no its not why it became popular board for jibbing cause of some bs review. what i meant to say was soft boards are pretty much certified for jibbing. just cause it didn't suit your 175 pound ass doesn't mean you can go around saying it suck.

I was comparing a 152 WWW to my 153 Jibstick. And in that comparison, I felt like the WWW was going to fold in half on every landing, every boardslide, every press, etc. I would do a nose press on a flat bar and almost front flip off the damn thing because the board was such a noodle. AND it has 0 pop; it would just kinda sputter off the end of a rail where my jibstick would actually pop and give you some time to spin, etc.

Then I think of all the park rats out there who have no style when doing their "butters" or whatever and I know why... these noodle boards just ask you to lift one foot slightly to "press" on a box or rail. It takes no balance and leaning and tweaking to hold a "press" like it would on a stiffer board. This might feel playful and fun but just coming from someone who could care less about how many 360 butters you can fit into 1 box, I would rather see someone crank out a real committed nose press (spins on or off optional) anhing over the nose of the board and flexing it out for as long as possible. You can't do something like that on the WWW because all you do it lift your foot. If you try to crank out a big lean, the board won't support you. THAT's my problem with this board and why I think its making these kids have a severe lack of style.


Basically: just because 2 companies make "jib" boards, doesn't mean that they are even close to the same flex. Honestly on a scale of 1-10 I would put the Jibstick at a 4.5 and the WWW at a 1.5.

i don't know about all that... is a matter of opinion and we know everyone rides different. 360 on and off a box or rail is retarded..i get what your saying. and thats when i know that guy didn't come from skateboard background. it should be a damn prerequisite

the board doesn't support YOU! 175lbs! get it yet? and its YOUR problem and so it doesn't mean it's will be everyone else...unless everyone on earth weights the same and board like you.

I agree with everything skateboarding background usually promotes better style, etc.

But a 152 jib board you are supposed to downsize 5cm as per the company's recommendation should support someone my size. I would agree with that if I was talking about a 147...

My friend's Horrorscope has too small sized bindings on it to just swap for a couple runs. But when we compared the 3, the Horrorscope was definitely between the WWW and the Jibstick in terms of flex. I'd be interested to try it out one day.
