Snapped board, advice for new one?

Hi, so I managed to snap my Capita board in the park, on the nose end next to the binding, I'd only used it about 5 times, and I'm wondering if the next board I should buy needs to be softer?
Or what I need to buy to prevent it?
My board was a 4/10 and 143cm.

Any advice?
Thanks

Maybe buy a park specific board...???

How old was the board? I know you said you only rode it like 5 times, but you don't state how much before you if 2nd hand...

That may be a good board for you, Marcus hammers his boards, i mean really throws them through the ringer, and they don't break...

It was brand new.
I thought traditional camber was best for park because of the pop - that's what i've been looking for anyway, and I like to bomb it down the mountain too.
Or do you recommend another one?

Smaller boards are better for tricks and stuff, I'm apparently recommended for a 144cm, so if I get a smaller one will it break?

Sounds like you were just unlucky!!!!!

A stiffer board will be harder to snap, as they are more likely to have carbon fibre inserts, etc!!!!!

Profile is really a matter of preference in the park (dependant on what features you're hittin), but generally camber is good for bombin hills/groomers!!!!!

Maybe shoot Capita an email and see if they'll help ya out in anyway?????

Stiffer board? Ugh, okay, I was hoping to get better at buttering lol.
I mainly do kickers and boxes.
I tried to claim on my warranty with Capita but they said it was abuse that broke the board, so that's them ruled out!
Thanks

You can always go for somethin with a CamRock Profile, so you have Camber for bombin the groomers, and a bit of Rocker in the Nose/Tail for Buttery Stuff!!!!!

Shame about the Claim!!!!!

Yea I think I might go for CamRock, seeing as there's hardly such thing as a Camber true twin board anymore.

There are a few out there. I'm like the burton process I picked up for park, and its true twin camber with a soft flex.
