Snowboard Park question

Hi Everyone.

I have a had my K2 Select Wide for a year now and i been riding park all the time now.

I have noticed that the K2 Select is a Directional Shape Snowboard and from what i experience it is VERY stiff. ( Very little pop if i must say so )

I am debating if i should get a new PARK board. Will it make a HUGE difference? for Jumps and Rails?

Like right now when i land Switch it is hard to control sometimes after.

What do you guys suggest?

It is not going to be the best park board and if you have the money to get a new board go for it but if you dont you will be just fine with it.

a softer board will definetly make a different on rails and butters. i would never ride a VERY stiff board maybe if you doing the mount 180km/h hehe and with no pop i would go for a new board. go for a softer with true twin and zero camber or rocker.
recommended boards
nitro T1: a very good allroud parkboard but still you can ride the BC
K2 www: funny playboard for the park and butters sooft with a nice pop
