Default mountain rider to park

hey guys, 1st post here

well, I been riding for several years and for the most part, I've stuck to general mountain riding. I can basically ace any groomed trails tossed at me. I've owned 2 boards in my life and one was all mountain so it wasn't stiff or super soft. And the other one is very stiff ... it is my current board that I carve with.

I want to step it up in the parks and become more versatile with my handling, spins, jumps, etc. I settled on a K2 www rocker and was curious on your guys opinion on this jib board. I will spend 75% of my time in the park this season and have no preference (ramps, boxes, rails - i want to improve on them all).

What can i expect from this board for my goals? Would it be difficult transitioning from a stiff board to a noodly board (something I've never tried)? Any other alternatives you guys recommend?

thanks!

i have never but from what i understand the design enhances nose+tail presses so buttering and the like becomes easier. But carving can be harder because it doesn't have that "bounceback launch" (sorry can't explain it since I'm pretty ignorant on board designs) between your heel/toe transitions. _--_ is normal boards and -__- is rocker??

really naive but from watching a bunch of videos on rocker and r-camber boards, i think thats what i got

I have a WWW rocker and its great but I really wish I would have gotten a capita horrorscope because flat kick looks a little more stable.
