Poppiness, not floppiness.
Don't let the name fool you, sure the K2 Parkstar Snowboard slays the park, but it loves to have freestyle fun pretty much anywhere else you point it. Equipped with a Jib Rocker shape for playful poppiness, weight-shaving Hybritaper technology, and a 4000 sintered base, this crazy freestyler is just as fast as it is fun.
- Jib Rocker profile is 80% flat with 20% rocker by the contact points to eliminate edge hook and offer a loose and forgiving ride
- Hybritaper gradually thins out the core of the board towards the nose and tail to reduce swing weight
- Carbon Web places carbon strands under the bindings to deliver sensitive response and increased ollie-power
- 4000 Sintered base is durable, absorbs and retains wax superbly, and is the fastest natural base material available

im 5'11 and weigh about 158.. should i ride a 152 parkstar or a 154parkstar wide.. boot size is 10.5.. help me out yo..?
For a 10.5 boot you should be fine without going to a wide board, as long as you ride a little angle on your bindings. If you ride bulkier boots, that could be a different story, but I would the not wide version myself. As far as which size, that depends more on what you're doing and where you're riding. If you're going to spend most of your time hitting rails and what not, go with the 152. If you live out west and want a board that will be fun if you get some fresh snow, go with the 155. Both sizes will be a fine size for you and work well for park riding, it just depends if you need something more versatile.
Go anywhere, do everything
The K2 Parkstar is an amazing board for the person looking to turn the whole mountain into their park.
Sintered base for speed. Triple fiberglass top sheet teamed with a carbon fiber webbing that starts directly underfoot for exceptional flex and snap. Once you add that with an 80% flat/20% rocker, called "JibRocker," the Parkstar is your anywhere everything toy.
A board designed to slide that kink rail, hold a strong fast edge on groomers, ollie anything pop, and float in the deep stuff. What else could u ask for!
