k2 www "too soft?"

ok i hear alot of this from people that the k2 www is too soft for big kickers and stuff like that, however i have seen this video and this guy rides a k2 www, granted it is not the most recent yr, but i think its a 08 k2 www which i would assume could not be too much different in flex. I would assume this guy proves that a www can jump?

check it out and leme know wut u think

YouTube - Danny Toumarkine sponsorship video

sry bout the sound YT is being ugh bout copy right i guess.
but this guy is good

well for one, that dude is really sick. i cant imagine a sponsership being too far away.
second i do not think its a www
third even if it is a jibstick, you can still jump it and tear it up especially when your as good as that dude. a stiffer board would be better for jumping. i love soft boards but they do suck for jumping sometimes. i dunno but i find a twin shaped deck with a stiffer tail to be the best for jumping, i think that shape would be called directional twin but im not 100%.
