k2 www rocker

So my GNU 11up is on its 3rd season and it's time for an upgrade, since I've been working on more park oriented riding this season I'm looking at this k2 www rocker wide 159cm currently on sale for $265 shipped.

Now I know this board is great for jibbing/buttering/small jumps, but will I be OK doing a few diamond runs with this? Most of my friends rather be booming down the mountain then in the park on rails so its inevitable.

my guess is, this will be too soft... a lot of people use this as a dedicated park board.

I figured it would be, maybe the Parkstar would be a better choice, I need a wide board at least 157, I'm 6'1 186lbs size 13.

I just took my www rocker out for the first time today. I love this freaking board! I thought it was going to be a noodle but I was wrong. I, as you do have friends that love to bomb hills and I had no problems keeping up. I did some double blacks today and I enjoyed myself alot. The rocker is very subtle but I could feel it a bit. I feel that the board is under rated by alot of people. BTW I rode this board today with my new Rome 390's and the bindings are the best thing I have ever rode. My Burton p1's made my feet ache a bit before (I was a huge fan of Burton bindings and I always hated how this site pushed Rome) but the 390's made me remember how much fun riding is. So between the new WWW and the 390's and a great day on the slopes of Vermont, I have been made a very very happy man.
