Description: K2 Parkstar Wide Snowboard
K2 took everything good in the Darkstar and created their new board, the Parkstar. Don't let the Park in the name fool you, though - the Parkstar edgy freestyle heritage shows through strong and clear. Under the triaxial glass top is K2's famous W2 core and under that, a flexible and strong biaxial glass layer covered with the industry standard sintered 4000 base that takes and holds wax. Whether you're cruising the back country or tearing up the slopes, the Parkstar follows you every step of the way without limits.

i demoed the 153w, i hit everything possible groomed,trails,powder,park,trees.... it was awesome! it doesn't catch edges, it handles great! it has a good surface for landing jumps and even for a 153 it shredded the pow! it was an all round smooth and fun ride. it is of course favored in the park, hence it's name (parkstar). i would definitely recommend this board to anyone!
"Best Board i have ever ridden"
Best board i have ridden so far and Ive ridden several. Since i am in the east coast we do often ride on icy mountain at time and this board held is ground, was able to link my turns and it handled awesome at high speed considering is a park board. When it comes to the park this board rocks especially on rails and boxes. Overall a great board to have. I am 6.1 208 and this is a 157w.
I'm 6'3 and 210lbs. I've ridden this board in pow, hardpack, groomers and jumps. It handles everything pretty well. It's a touch rough at super high speed, but you can hit the big line in the park. Excels at sliding boxes and just old fashion playing around. You can even ride it in pow and the jib rocker helps it float better than most camber boards.
Demoed this board for acouple of runs and I ended up loving it by the end. The parkstar will defiantly be my next board that I purchase. The first thing I noticed was how fun it was just to butter and mess around with. Great flex for pressing but not soft that it will wash out. It held a edge well and felt very stable while riding. I next took it into the park and it exceled. Great for jibbing and locked into presses easily. Going off jumps it had great pop and felt stable when landing. I would recommend this board to someone who rides park first and then wants a board that can handle its own outside of the park.
I have the 2010 model of this board, and it is amazing. it one of transworld's over $499 good wood last year, and i'm pretty sure it got the award this year too. last year there was this on big storm on the east coast and i went riding with this board in waist deep powder, but the board floated like a feather. being the east, i also had to ride some ice, but it cut turns fine, and i ride as fast as a lambo. great all around board. and i put that it's an intermediate board, but it can be used for all skill levels.
