The first board is a bataleon goliath with beta movement bindings

the second is a lime green burton dominant with purple cartel bindings

use the one you like riding better. you have both so ride each and decide which one you prefer in the park.

IIRC the dominant is pretty much a strictly jib/street/park board whereas the goliath lends itself better to freestyle.

no one on here is going to be able to tell you anything unless we at least know what kind of riding you plan to do. i would just ride whichever one will be better for what i want at the time.

From my experience, I prefer riding an all-around board in the park and still be able to ride steeps rather than riding a jib board all over the mountain. So if you have to choose without riding either, I'd go with the Goliath/Beta. Like the others said though - if you can, ride both and just go with the one that feels the best for what you're going to use it mostly for.

"tricks" is a pretty broad spectrum of things which is why i asked. you could be doing tricks off a bigs jumps in which the goliath would be better or maybe you want to just butter around.
