Progression-inspiring performance that shines in the park.
Dialed to press, spin, and slide through the park and beyond, the K2 Parkstar Snowboard delivers a buttery, fun ride that makes landing new tricks easier than ever. Thanks to the Jib Rocker profile and just enough carbon in the tip and tail, you’ll ride out of more sketchy situations and still pop like the dickens.
- Jib Rocker shape is 80% flat with a reverse-camber tip and tail to reduce hang-ups yet maintain edge control
- V-shaped Matrix I carbon stringers improve edge control and add extra spring in the tip and tail
- Hybritaper construction uses larger sidecut radii at contact points for more forgiving landings in either direction

Parkstar should be called MountainStar
The Parkstar kills it! I switched to this board based on a friends recommendation and could not be happier. I was previously riding a 2010 Burton Hero and MAN am I glad I switched! The 80% flat base actually lets you TURN and hold an edge with confidence, seriously you can lay it down on this board. The jib rocker also makes it very forgiving! Consistent flex and twin shape kills it in both directions. The Parkstar is super responsive to every input yet not catchy or edgy. The name does it no justice, it should be called the mountain star. For the record I had previously ridden Burton for the past 10 years and I likely won't be back there for a while!
what flex rating out of 10 would u give...
what flex rating out of 10 would u give this board? how much stiffer is it then the www. im in a pickle on weather to get a www or parkstar... iv only done one previous season on a libtech TRS and i rode a ride machete for a while .. i was looking for something softer. but not sure weather to get a weapon or park star seems the park stars quite simlar to the machete witch was a stick board but stiff for park and rails... im more into my jumps then rails but thats probably because all my other boards have been 2 stiff. any help... will a weapon hold up on the jumps ill be hitting "40ft max" maybe bigger by the end of the season .
p.s. witch board would be help me progress faster. "easyer to use and learn new tricks" out of the www and parkstar.

I have a K2 WWW and saw this board realizing it's practically the same board. Does anyone know what is different about this compared to the weapon other than having a fiberglass top sheet rather then p tex?
the park star dosnt have the jib tip like the www. so ull have to ride it normal size not 5cm shorter .. and the parkstar also has carbon web in the tip and tail to give it more pop and make it a tad stiffer/stable.
I know I am late to the answer party but for future reference the biggest difference is that the WWW is a rocker snowboard and the Parkstar is a flat base with rocker only at the nose and tail. They will ride differently and the PS is going to be a more stable board overall.... The WWW is going to be more playful with slightly softer flex and more forgiving overall at the sacrifice of stability.

Im 5'11 140lbs. I have size 13. Should I go with the 154w or 157w, I spend most of my time in the park! Thanks!
154W is what I would ride. Did you ever wind up buying a PS if so how did you like it?
I'm about 155 pounds with a size 12 boot....
I'm about 155 pounds with a size 12 boot. Would I be better off with a 149cm or a 152 cm?
deapends on how tall you are. if ur like 5"5" or less get a 154 wide. if your taller than that get a regular prolly a 157.
or if u had an old snowboard that fits you take that size and take away 3cm or so and then make sure ur feet are small enough that u dont need a wide :P. I have a 161 darkstar and i bought the 159 parkstar which is wide enough for my 13 size boots and xl burton freestyle bindings. unless you way overweight, i wouldnt let that be part r your decision because this board is so stable and responsive you just want one the right height and boot width.
