Question Capita Stairmaster = Arbor Westmark??

been reading some reviews Shayboarder, Angry Snowboarder and anything else that popped up from google. When you get into this kinda board they are so similar is there really a difference.

This is for my 14yr old boy. All mountain, park (rails & boxes), some small - med park jumps. Midwest icy, mostly man made snow, crowded hills. I think this is most of the details.

Any info you can share would be great.

These are two completely different board. One is full camber the other is tip to tail rocker with grip tech.

Westmark. Absolutely worth the extra $50 or whatever.

Nivek with more research I did see that my bad.

With my very limited knowledge why is a SM with reg camber loved in the park so much. It seems to be a good rail board from what I can tell but a so/so all mountain board. Does the reg camber give way to more stability on the rails. Some reviews mentioned it's not so bendy in the park cuz of the reg camber.

All the board specs and techno jargen make my head spin

I still have my SM from four years ago- beat to death but still going fine. The perfect soft flex for park, mid-wide, cheap, and built like a tank. That's all most kids need thus the popularity. The camber just adds a little pop and the board is so soft it hardly matters.
