I love this board for the park, i bought the 153 for an all mountain board, which was an awful choice. I am 135 pounds but still a short board. This board is not very good on ice and doesn't float in powder, but that's not what it is designed to do. 5 out of 5 for a park board, the board is very damp and although a little bit stiff it handles everything great. I feel comfortable hitting big jumps, kink rails, and basically everything besides pressing as it is a little bit more of a medium flex. Amazing pop and tons of control for giving you that extra confidence boost.
