Question Which snowboard?

Hey guys, new here, but basically I have a semi important question. I have the opportunity to get one of two snowboards. Salomon Acid or a Salomon Special. I am not a park rider, but I am looking to start heavy park riding next year, or at least attempt to. I current have a K2 satellite which I need to replace with a more flexible board. This season I have been doing a lot of trail blazing, hitting fresh powder, getting big air of cliffs and random jumps off of runs. Next season I hope to try more park, and finally get the 540 out of my system, without falling. The Acid is a 155 and the Special is a 159. I am around 179cm, or around 5'10 for you imperial guys.

Both boards seem like a good deal, and I can get both at the same price... so which one?
Or is there another board I should consider at the $250CND price tag?

Thanks,
(I kinda wanna get it quick... before the snow's all gone)

I'm pretty sure the weapon would work perfect for heavy park riding, but yeah I guess I don't know where you could get it for 250 out there, dogfunk doesn't work for you right?

I looked at the WWW awhile back, but I don't know how much time I will spend in the park. I guess having a flexible light board for freestyle won't hurt. Right? lol
