Choosing a park board is all about preference. The place that I normally find really good information on is Transworld Snowboard, or even the Burton Good Book.

Every year they layout the best new park boards and the makeups of each of them. I think last years good book actually broke down each board and what it was best intended for in a big circle chart, it was pretty cool.

Hope I helped

Hey I have a quick question for you guys. I am looking to get a park board and currently have a 2011 Rome Garage Rocker, which I find is too stiff and not flexible enough for me.

Would you recommend the Rome Artifact Rocker or Sierra Stunt for something that's strictly for park riding and jibb.

The Artifact is a noodle, especially the rockered version. If that's what youre looking for, it's perfect.

He's right; i rode a rockered artifact once and hated it. I sold the thing the next week. I personally like a mid flex board for any kind of riding. A super buttery board will make sticking bigger jumps a real pain in the rear, but allows you to lock on to rails waaay easier.

In return, a stiffer board will give you some jumping capabilities, but tends to slide off of rails easier.

The box scratcher is stiffer than the Artifact rocker...the Artifact makes the box scratcher feels mid flex.
I've the '11 Artifact rocker, is a noodle, will be great for parks and jibs. Newer models suppose to have more pop.
I've been told that the K2 WWW offers similar flex as the Artifact but rides better.
Signal park rocker is ultra fun too.
If women's boards fit you, you'll have more options.

Hey, I know this question is prob asked a million time. Im buying a GNU pickle but cant decide between a 150cm or a 153cm. Im 5"6 150lb and consider myself an intermediate to advance rider. I mostly do ground tricks and all mountain here and there. My current board is a 151 Reverse camber from TruSnow I need a board that I can get better. Should I stay around 150cm or go 153cm

The last post before your insightful post was 8/22/13, why would you drag this topic back up?  And if you are dragging up an old topic at least put some thought into your post.

This one's for you, manda:

hahaha, this thread will just NEVER go away...  some people will never grasp the most basic of principles about personal preference and will continue to spew the forums with nonsense.  backup your stance with valid arguments... don't just make foolish claims and expect people to listen for no reason...
