Whoever told you slimwalls are weak doesn't know much about slimwalls. Urethane is used in skateboard wheels, which is what slimwalls are made from. They are less likely to break than regular UMHW polyethylene sidewalls most other boards use.
If urethan was week than I don't think skaters would be riding away from 16 stair drops to flat.
The ride kink won't break when you hit jumps, its just not that great for bigger jumps because it is so soft so it won't have as much pop going fast. Its built for park riding, and handrails so it has a super soft flex. It does have a slower extruded base though, that is the only issue I had with it, but you don't really need to go that fast when hitting rails.
I'd probably try and find a medium stiff park board, so you can still go fast and still have fun on rails.
If your looking at Ride, the DH would be better in my opinion for park than the Kink.
