Default Ride Crush vs. Flow Verve (2011)

This season I'm finally getting a new board but I really can't decide between these 2 boards:

Ride Crush 2011
Flow Verve 2011

I've been riding for 3 years now so I consider myself a beginner - intermediate rider.
I mostly ride on groomers and in powder but this season I'll try to spend more days in the park. Pretty much I'm looking for a board thats good for park progression but still performs good outside the park.

I'm 5"8' (173cm), 155 pounds.
Bindings: Forum Republic
Old board: Elan Mantra 158 04/05

Which one would you recommend?
What size should I go for? I'm thinking 152 or 149 but I'm not really sure.

Thanks for your answers

EDIT: I just came across Bataleon boards with their TBT technology. Is it really so good as they say it is? I'm looking at EvilTwin 2011.

I would go with the Wasteland or Ride. These are all really similar boards though. I would go with whatever you prefer.

Flow Era... can be found for 340, not many people will recomment a used board, especially a 2010 cambered board. its a true twin and fully rockered, great in the park, will do you fine all mountain as well.

Thanks for the answers

I found Flow Era but its way over my budget (500$) and I couldn't find any Capita Stairmasters..
(I'm limited to local shops and german ebay xD)

Look for a 2011 Signal Park. I do believe Signal has an account in Germany.

A new one is only $360 US.
Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
