Exclamation Park board - suggestions

I'm looking to pick up a park board for this year, don't normally look into that kind of park so I was just wondering what you guys would suggest. I've been looking at a few; Burton Blunt, Skate Banana and the Box Scratcher...
What board would you suggest for park riding?

Skate banana is an amazing park board. Also take a look at the Gnu park pickle if you like it I have one and it is AMAZING. If you'r on a budget the newer burton blunts have a lot of tech for their price and are pretty good for park since i've demoed one. Capita stairmaster or the Capita indoor survival are great boards with pretty soft flex. But if I were you I would go with the Skate Banana or the Park Pickle.

Yeah I don't have a budget so any board, I'll check out the Park Pickle for sure though.
Thanks!

I'm looking for an all round good park board, I just moved to quebec and figured I'll start spending more time in the park now so just going for a park board to accompany my Stepchild Corporate. I'll check some of those out though

dont count out the box scratcher either. its amazing and does what it is made for quite well. and who can deny that burtner and think thank are dope. see if you can find the 2010 model though because its a bit softer at the tip and tail (they stiffened it up a bit this year) and the graphic is better in my opinion.

BA-NA-NA. Say it again now BA-NA-NA

So would you say Box Scratcher over Skate Banana for park?

in my opinion, yes, but if you want a more all arounder go skate banana or park pickle. the box scratcher is decent on the mountain, but is mainly DOPE in the park

Alrighty, I guess that one is now at the top of my list. I'm going after a pure park board, as I said before I have a Stepchild Corporate for elsewhere so I only need it to be good for the park lol
thanks mate, much appreciated
