Park board suggestion

Looking for a jib board, jumps are a plus. Basically want to get more advanced with rails/boxes without beating up my current board.

Looking at:
152w K2 WWW
154w Ride Crook
153w Skate Banana
152w Rome Artifact
153w Gnu carbon credit

I've never ridden any of these, so if anyone have experience please chime in!

Cheers

May be wise to look into the Lib Tech Box Scratcher.

A tad too small for a size 12 boot

He said he'd like his board mostly for rails so I'd say that's why he wants rocker. To the OP, I had a K2 WWW and loved it so much for rails, but it was somewhat slow and washed out on jumps because it was so soft. Although you didn't mention it in your list of baords you were looking at, I'm currently riding a Capita Indoor Survival FK and I like it a lot more all around. It is a bit stiffer than the WWW so it handles speed and jumps a lot better and has more pop. It still performs nicely on rails too.
