Agree. But dampness is part of 'going up' the scale.

Mostly true, but most people would consider the SL to be the better park board. It might lose out a bit to the Heritage in the jump line, but is way better for jibbing.

Most people would call that big mountain/freeriding. All-mountain includes that, as well as park, etc.
I prefer Heritage as well, but the SL is clearly more of an all-mountain board. On balance, the disadvantage the SL has in charging is smaller than the advantage it has in the park.
