CApita Indoor survival 156 VS K2 Parkstar 155

Hi guys,
I'm trying to find a new board for this upcomming season, but i'm kind of lost, it's stupid but i'm sort of scared to buy the wrong board,
even if i know that i can ride any kind of board and have fun with it. So after reading alot of topics on those boards i need to choose one board pretty soon without being able to try it..
I have been riding since more than 10 years, i love to ride on every kind of terrain (i live in the swiss alps) but this next season i really wan't to focus on park riding (medium size kickers, rails, jumping arround and buttering on the slopes) but i want a board that will allow me to ge rather fast on the slopes.

So wich of those boards do you think is the best for me? why? other ideas?
i'm 6' tall and and 175 pounds.
thank you for your insight..

for a better all around board, i think the cambered version would suit you better. i picked up last years cambered indoor survival for a park board that can handle the entire mountain.

K2 Parkstar all the way!!!

I made that same switch last year. I love to ride all mountain but wanted to get more freestyle/park into my game. I picked up the 09/10 Parkstar and what a difference from reg camber! I buttered, jibed, and jumped all the way down the hill effortlessly. Then in the park it handled all the boxes and rails with no problem. I think one of the most fun things about the board is that it is FAST!!! You can scream down the hill!! There were also a few days last year where I had some deep pow to play in and it handled that with no problem also. This is a great board for the all mountain rider that also likes to hit the park. It's fun and playfull but when you want to turn it up and hit the extreme button it's right there with you and wont let you down.

Well if you want softer in the middle get the Parkstar, if you want softer in the tips get the Indoor.

I lie my DH alot, it's a great board, but it has already more than 120 days on the slopes, so it's kind of beaten up..
what i like about it is that i could take it anywhere and it would do fine, but i would like a board that is a little more playfull and maybe a little softer and easier to press. are the parkstar or indoor survival like that or am i completly wrong?

could you still straight line a rather steep hill with the indoor survival or park star?
