Default ride dh2 with lowrize or capita indoor survival

i'm looking to buy a new snowboard for 2010 that will replace my noodle.
i have been looking at the ride dh2 with their new lowrize rocker and the capita indoor survival and idk if flat kick or traditional.
i do almost all park and want a durable board that will be ridden on mostly rails but also taken off 50 foot booters.
which board would be best
for the indoor FK or no?
other suggestions welcome

Im pretty sure I'm getting the indoor survival next year. I ride rails alot, but the biggest booters I hit are around 30 feet

i can take my stairmaster extreme off 30s and feel comfy but over that its kinda ehh, the indoor survival should be better for bigger jumps and still compete in the jibbing department, because of its carbon enforced midsection...

The DH2 lowrize has a micro amount of rocker to it compared to the Capita with the FK, so if you're hitting bigger kickers take that into consideration as with having more rocker if you land forward or in the backseat you're going down. The DH2 does lose a tiny bit of it's pop with the lowrize but that board has insane pop to begin with and is geared more as a booter board than a jibstick.

is flat kick like a huge rocker?
because i was still considering getting the indoor with traditional camber so i can still jump but i do want a bit of a softer board.
