Does the Burton Cruzer work as a learning park board?

So i want to get in the park, but I don't want to damage my new all-mountain board. I'm looking to get a cheap board to stomp on rails without guilt or fear, and hopefully i can use that board to practice over the summer as well (jumping on home made rails and all).

So far one of the cheaper options i've seen is to get a used Burton Cruzer for $57 shipped. It's supposed to be a soft, beginner's all-mountain board. I've seen reviews that say it's pretty heavy, but i figure if i get a smaller one for park it shouldn't be too bad to turn and catch air. And if it is heavier, i figure that would be good training until i can bear to bring my all-mountain into the park.

Do you guys think that works? Or is the Cruzer too soft/heavy/all-mountainey?

Thanks!

Skill isn't going to save your all mountain deck. Riding park with leave any deck in pieces if you slash rails and boxes all the time. As for whether or not a board is a good learners deck, the universal answer is "Yes." As long as it fits your size reasonably well, you aren't going to notice most of a boards defining characteristic while you're learning. For $57 shipped, its hard to be disappointed anyways.
