Default K2 WWW or Ride Kink - both 156 wides

Looking for some opinions on these 2 boards. They seem very similiar and both made for park and jibbing so I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. Found good deals on both for about the same price in 2011 models. I already have an all mountian board, 2009 Ride Antic 158W, so this will be more of a play board that I will use at my local small midwest resort for playing in the park, jumping more than rails or boxes, and jibbing around. This will also be my first rocker style board too. Which board is more versitale as far as being able to ride outside the park and doing a couple high speed runs here and there when riding with non park riders?

I have ride an older kink before they added rocker technology and had a friend you had the WWW. We both loved our boards to death and rode them anywhere on the mountain, anytime. Not the best carvers due to them both being flexy. I don't think you can go wrong with either choice.

maybe instead of a www, go with a fastplant or parkstar from k2, supposed to be sligtly stiffer and wont feel completely like a wet noodle, also the dc pbj is a little firmer and supposed to be able to handle booters

The PBJ is not any stiffer or more capable of jumping than the WWW or Kink.

Might I suggest a Signal Park Flat or Rocker light though? Both super fun to jib around on but also very capable of some higher speeds and jumping.

Faster sintered bases on both too.

I have tested both the www and kink as a snowboard buyer. I recommend the weapon rocker for your needs because the www rides better all mountain than the kink. The Kink feels really good on Jibs but the weapon rocker was better everywhere else. hth

Thanks for the replies guys unfortunetaly the answers were about 50 50 so I'm still in the air on what to get. I currently have a Ride so I know the quality of them are good and the slimewalls take the abuse. How tough are the K2's? Last K2 I had was an old Fat Bob years ago and I actually still have it but don't ride it anymore.
