The Kink has been a go to deck for riders for since 2003. It has always been reliable for a soft deck that is playful and tons of fun in the terrain park. Ride has made a few updates to it to make it even more fun.
* Prorize rocker keeps you from catching your edges, makes pressing & buttering your board easier but is about half as much rocker as the Lowrize rocker used in other decks in the Ride lineup. The flat stable platform from the center of you board out to where the rocker starts gives you a stable platform to set up for rails & jumps and when you do want to point it down the mountain.
*85A slimewalls give you durability. Lets face it, you're probably going to slam this deck into rails, boxes, tree stumps, etc... The slimewalls is a polyurethane sidewall that flexes naturally with your deck for a better feeling under foot, but is also going to take those beatings against rails.
*Cleave Edge - When you slide down a metal rail, your edge heats up from the metal on metal friction. When you hop off the rail and your hot metal edge hits the snow it is vulnerable to cracking with the instant cooling. Cleave Edge is 50% thicker then your average metal edge and when this happens you have a better chance of riding away without a cracked edge.
*Extruded base that is durable and can survive the constant bashing against rails & boxes.
If you're a park rat, you're going to love this board. If you're a rider that just likes soft playful decks anywhere you ride, you'll love this board.
im 5'8 145 will the 152 b a good all around park board or should i go with the 147? i tend to shred rails more but im starting to spin 40 ft jumps as well.

I'd say 152. If it were just a jib stick you'd be better off on the 147 but for jumps that size you'll want more stability.

This board is amazing i went from riding K2 WWW the past few years and well i wont be going back i rode it all winter in australia and pretty much only jib and well it works amazingly and is still good to go on jumps upto 40ft the PROrize rocker design is also a huge upgrade from rides LOWrize rocker they use on other models i highly reccomend it rides nice and just moves with ya body so effortlessly get on one homies!
ps, the graphics are pimp and the base really stands out on photos..
is the 147 going to be too small to fit med bindings. I've been wanting to try a smaller board around the park

the waist width for the 147 is 249mm if the bindings are much longer than that you will have hangover. denpending if you angle your bindings and if you have toe or heel adjustment it gives some options. the pic below is of the tech specs for the kink.
