Default 09 K2 WWW or 09 Forum Youngblood

I've narrowed my decision down to one of these boards. Looking at riding park a little bit more but would also like to get my freeride on as well. Which one would be a good board if your leaning towards hitting the park more often? I'm 5"11 185 which one size wise would be cool for me?
K2-152
Youngblood 155
Any help would be appreciated.

well if ur gna be in the park like 90% of the time then the K2 will be great cause its flexy as crap! but if ur gna be on the slopes a decent amount to go for the forum cause its alittle bit stiffer... you could do what i did and find the 09' models for way cheap and get a park board & keep another for mtn riding..i got a 09' rome aritfact for $180 and ive seen the 09' K2 WWW for $220 online.. just an idea???

Youngblood Chili Dog? WWW is more of a jib board than anything else. In the K2 lineup I more recommend the Parkstar for your description.

If he is going positive camber (which from the sounds of it he is) i would say go with the youngblood if you are going to be cruising the mountain as well. The WWW is a super fun board to ride, but at high speed you are going to be getting chatter.

If you are going to be going rocker or reverse camber (etc etc) there are a lot of other boards that could fit your description.

From the looks of everyones posts seems like the youngblood might be the better choice for me since it fits my riding description. The WWW can not handle a little free riding?

Truth. You CAN ride the mountain with any board out there. However, it really isn't reccommended.
