StepChild Latchkey vs Nitro Subzero

Ok, so first off, hi, I'm new here. I've lurked for forever and finally had something I felt like I needed to post.

I have a question for you guys. I'm getting a new board this summer and I thought I had my heart set on getting the Nitro Subzero, but recently I've been scared off of it in favor of other boards, specifically the StepChild Latchkey.

If I went with the Latchkey, should I get the rocker or camber version? I'm leaning heavily to the rocker.

Height: 5'9"
Weight: 150ish
Boot Size: Like 9-10
Riding Style: My passion is riding park (Rails and boxes). My resort doesn't a ton of snow, so the jump action is limited, but I like to be able to ride around and hit random stuff and jumps that me and my buddies make. Kindof all-mountain with a heavy park focus.

Every board I have ever owned has honestly been worthless. I rode a prototype Able board from the 90s for a while until just recently switching to some sort of Rossignol budlight board that my friend gave me after I blew out my inserts, I'm looking to get something nice finally, any ideas?

Well just an FYI on the Subzero, one of the loosest boards on the market. It's super soft and then the rocker.

I don't know much about the Latchkey. I want to like Stepchilds, but I just haven't ridden any to know.

If you're into other options take a look at the Flow Verve, Slash Happy Place, Yes Public, or Salomon Salomonder.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

don't go for the Subzero without trying it out first. you may or may not like their "hotwing" camber.

Has anyone heard of Braedon Wheeler? He rides the latchkey and he looks like he knows whats up, which doesnt mean anything, but its still a sweet edit:
