im buying an evil twin and from the reviews i read and
from what ihop(thanks) has told me, $245 is a super nice
deal. i cant wait until i can ride mine. go to the
"skate banana vs evil twin" thread to read more.

yea i was gonna get an evil twin i found a one for like $325. it got sold out before i could grab it. i dont like the graphics on the '09 one if youve seen it. its like yellow and black with a smiley face.

but yea th was the last '08 they had before they order the '09 version so it was on clearance way down

I think you'll really like the fun.kink, especially around the park. I had a hard time deciding between the fun.kink, the Evil Twin, and the Riot. I went with the ET for a little bit more all-mountain stiffness, and a little less expensive than the Riot. I also like the true-twin shape of the ET/Riot. The Fun.kink is twin shape, but for some reason they gave it a 1cm stance setback, which seemed a little out of place on a park board. I guess it makes it a bit more adaptable to riding outside the park or in powder. Did you notice by the way, the graphics on the 07/08 fun.kink were a subtle jab at the uninc base graphics (uninc has a sillouette of a pig on the base, the fun.kink shows a butcher chopping up a pig.)

Anyway I hope you get to ride it soon, you should post a review after spending a few days on it.

LOL EAT IT BURTON!!! :cheeky4:

"The guys behind the triple base technology also have lots of humor!
On the Bataleon ISPO booth we specially liked the FUN.KINK. This new board in the range is a directional twin and it’s a big “f*ck ya” to Burton’s un.inc range! Come here little piggy, the butcher’s gonna take care of you!"
