The kink is sick for a jib deck! DON'T BUY IT IF YOU WANT A TON OF POP (PK Thunder) IT IS A RAIL BOARD IT ISN'T MADE FOR A TON OF POP JUST LIKE ANY OTHER JIB STICK! Idk how people can't flex this board, then again I've seen people trying to press out the Signal Park Rocker and didn't get it off the box somehow. I have a Ride Crush, and the bases that ride puts out are damn hard to get through, more than happy, and i've ridden the kink as well, and it is sick!
As for the reviews knocking the slimewalls, those kids must just not get it! Yes they are softer, but guess what ABS will give way just as easy and it shatters! So the advantage of slimewalls is that you can bang that shit back out and not have your board be all crappy, SLIMEWALLS IS AN ADVANCEMENT IN SNOWBOARDING TECHNOLOGY
