broke board, 2 choices for a new one

Hi guys, just busted a board and am replacing it i have narrowed my choice down to these 2 boards.

Flow ERA 2012 Snowboard - Men's Snowboards - Snowboards - Snow

Nitro Rook 2012 Snowboard - Men's Snowboards - Snowboards - Snow

200lbs, 12.5 boot, 18 and-18 stance.

jumps and fun on the mountain are my priority, boxes and rails are secondary.

I have a ride highlife for deep and steep days.

The Nitro board sounds good, but I don't have any experience with them..

The Flow board has all of the same technologies in my board, and I love it. The 'I-Rock' tech. is a rocker with slightly cambered zones under the feet. I use it for everything and it works well..

That nitro board sounds pretty legit too, but seems like a more park oriented board.. You're the same guy that snappe dthe nose doing a 180 huh? I take it they didn't replace it for you?

lol ya no go on the warranty. I can't believe i broke it on a 180... i should just say it was on a double cork.

I think im gonna go with the flow because it is wider, cheaper, and has a camber profile i have never tried. The nitro has a sintered base and is flat but i have had 2 flat boards already so i kinda want to try something new.

What size are you going with? Do a review on whateber you purchase.. I really do like my Flow Infinite '59W, but it's directional. The more I get into the park, the more I want a twin stick, and the Era has everything I like in my board with softer flex and a twin shape..

I really want a park pickle though..

For the record, say you it broke while you were doing a double cork to handrail frontflip out. Ballin' ass shit right there

lol that would be quit a feat!

I had an infinite 163w last year and sold it when i decided i was going to go with multiple boards. I did like it as a do it all, fun, nice side cut, poppy, pretty damp, and fast.

I will let you know how the new one rides. it will be a bit though, its gotta come from the usa to canada and im going to panama for a week at the end of the month.
