Out of those i would say the park pickle. Although my real vote is to suck it up and order a never summer evo.

Bubba he is in Canada though. I am not sure of the taxes and what not for buying a board in Canada.

What size jumps are you planning on doing?

Probably 40 foot-ish or less. But I spend more time on rails and boxes.

Also I just realized that shop stocks bataleon boards, so how do the Fun Kink and the Airobic compare the the pickle and skate banana?

Swindle. If you're jibbing a lot a Lib wont hold up. One bang on the tail or nose and it'll delam. The Swindle is soft enough for a jib day but with enough pop and stability so send good sized jumps.
