Really quick k2 www rocker rome 390 review

About me 5 foot 9 145ish pounds
The good K2 152 WWW rocker rome 390 s/m K2 t1 8.5
Stance width 22" 18, -15

I loved the romes the flex was great and I felt very attached to the board its like there wasn't even a binding there. Its like I was directly connected to the board with bare feet. They are also light and VERY comfortable. The ankle strap has a great soft gel in it. I couldn't even tell the straps were there.

The www rocker took a run to figure out how to ride it and once I did it was a blast. Once I loosened up and just went with it the, board was a pleasure to ride, much more fun than my del rey and more forgiving. I haven't gotten it on the rails or boxes yet, but will update when I do.
In short I recommend both products.

I love that you haven't done any jibs or rails with the board but you're already recommending it. That's how that bullshit board got so popular in the first place...



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!

I compared it to a del rey which isnt quite the floppy noodle that your saying the k2 is, I also said I would update once I've put it on a box. The k2 www rocker is a fun board to just ride around on, one of the more fun boards I have ridden. Take it for what its worth.

I had it on the boxes today I like it. I like how fluid this board feels. Everything is loose and very controlled. It is just right for everything I want to do(fuck around) I know my next board will be the step up in this series for sure.

K2 suggests that with their "jib tip" or whatever you can/should downsize a few cm's even. So, I'm comparing this 152 to what I ride, my Stepchild Jibstick 153.

I'm not about to buy into any "you should have been riding a xxx size instead for your weight" BS, because I am comparing it to the size board I jib with. I'm not gonna jib with a 158 or some wild shit because a piece of paper says so.



Also, I am glad for Kitten Mittens that he's happy with his board choice, that's all that matters. Just saying... for me, this board was a bag of dicks.

I also looked at the jibstick, but settled on this one. Glad you like your board

LoL. Talk about being harsh

Maybe somebody wants a park board without ever going on a box?

you weight 175 now wonder. you can't compare board just cause its a "JIBSTICK" the flex isn't the same. just as if i got myself a stepchild and it's way too stiff for me for my like cause i way way less than you.
