Depends on how soft of a board you want.... The Sierrascope is gonna be a little bit softer then the Indoor Survival. The IS is going to feel better if your hitting bigger jumps but the Sierra will be a little more playful and dorkable. Both wicked boards...

The WWW is more of a throw away board and the Blunt is a low end Burton board so the chances of it holding together for more then 20-25 days is slim to none.

Your not gonna go wrong with the Capita sticks....

I would recommend the WWW and please do not buy the blunt, whatever you decide.

Custom is all mountain. So in the park it will be better at kickers and pipe, average on rails, and average on jibs. WWW will be strong on rails, jibs. Average on kickers and below average pipe.

I highly recommend the Capita Horrorscope FK. $349.99.

That's what I will be rockin' this season and the next since I'm buying it late.

If you are looking at all park, don't get the Sierra, get the Horror. You will not regret it I promise you.

Im pretty sure that the 09 customs are still more suitable for park than this years. If my knowledge is right,

the board has everything you want from a park board, such as twin shape, and it has a 4 or 5/10 flex rating...

No, like the post above. The Burton Custom is an all mountain board. What you want out of an all park board is flex, pop, and stability. The Custom is to stiff for an all park board.
