Is this board ok for a beginner ? I have been looking at either the Rome Manual wide or the Ride Kink Wide
The Kink is a very forgiving board, so yes it would be an alright board to start out on. Altho pro's ride this deck aswell. If you want the Manual, you can also look at the Machine.I ride an 08 Rome Machine and I love that deck to death. Its held up on some pretty crazy missions, and is still kicking. Now I have ridden the Kink wide aswell and that deck is very nice for presses, jumps and its alright on steeps and trees. But yes the Kink would be a good deck to get you going. Also this deck is not a reverse cambered deck or anything like that, it is a traditional cambered deck, if that matters to you. If you go for a rocker, its way more forgiving that a traditional cambered deck. This being said tho, it makes it more 'loose' feeling or more 'noodley'. Some people who start off on those will never go back to a traditional cambered deck bec of the way it feels. But either one will do just fine. I would say the Kink is a bit softer than the Manual, and you get added 'slime walls' with the Kink, whitch are really nice when you are riding park or flying at high speed on hard pack. Its pretty much a dampening strip, for less chatter, that runs along the side wall. Hope this helps
This thing is like putting butter on mama's home made bread. Absolutely kills it on the "kink"ed rails and can nose press a box like a small child looking in a pet store window. If you're going for the big boy booters, you may want a little more structure under your feet, but if you'd slaying the urban streets... Ride the Kink.

im 6'1 and vary between 170 and 175. i mostly ride all mountain/pow but have been getting into park more n more every year. 156 or 159. i currently ride a 161 and want to go smaller, but i dont know how much smaller to go (add kinky girlfriend joke here)
I'm 6'1 and weigh 185, I've never ridden anything over 158 unless it's for powder. I currently have a 155 kitted up.
im 6'1 or 6'2 and about 140 is 156 to big...
im 6'1 or 6'2 and about 140 is 156 to big for me i ride park but i got a big foot so i need wide
You could ride anything in the 152-158 range. Seeing as your height has nothing to really do with sizing, you can ride the 156 no problem. I mean height does in a sense, but at your weight, it wont make a huge difference. The kink has sick flex, rides like a dream, is a nice light board, even in wide, and Ride uses Slime Walls whitch is sick when ur always killin the park. I demoed this board and every one before this one and I love this deck. I have the Kink from 2 years ago and its still kickin like the first day I got it. Changed over to a Rome Machine 154W for last season and this upcoming one, and im 6' 165lbs. But the 156 should be fine for you. Gives you a little extra length to take it everywhere rather than being stuck with a deck that really only does well in the park. Hope this helps brotha
Im 6'2 and 160 pounds should i get this...
