im looking at getting the parkstar or the ride dh2, but im thinking the parkstar because of the price. im 5'10: and about 160 lbs with size 10's would a 155 be the right size to go for the parkstar?

Get the parkstar for sure. They both ride about the same. I rode the dh2 last year and I own the parkstar now. Get a smaller board if you plan on staying in the park. You don't need a wide board either. I wear a size 15 on mine and its fine.

Dave, the K2 Parkstar, is the same as the Darkstar, and the WWW Rocker, they are compressed boards... the size you pick will actually depend on your skill level a little more than your normal board which usually differs to weight. I'm 6'0, and 190 also, and I use a WWW 152. It is the equivalent to using something at about 156+, if you're really skilled, try the 156+. Don't get a wide though, you don't require it. Wide boards typically begin at a boot size of 10.5 and up.
