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!!!

"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!"
