I would say neither. Both of those are very "terrain park" decks. You shouldn't get a pure freestyle board for three reason. First, you shouldn't be going near the terrain park until you know how to ride. Second, if even you wanted to go in the terrain park, you said there isn't one at your mountain. Last, if your just going to be doing mostly trail riding, get a board that is specifically designed for that. It will help you learn faster, easier, and allow to you progress further. Thus, you should be looking at an all-mountain type deck. Once you heave learned how to ride, then you'll have a board which you can take anywhere the mountain (blacks to terrain park), and be able to handle anything you throw at it, If you later decide that you want to mostlly do some specific type of riding (park or big-mountain), then you can get a board for that purpose. So, skip the Graft and the Machine. Take a look at the Vinyl, Lo-Fi, Crail, Slash, Agent, etc.
