Default Need Help Deciding b/w 2 Boards

Winter is almost (hopefully) here on the East Coast, and I still don't have a board! My old board was a Burton Dominant: http://s3.backcountry.com/900/BUR/BU...488-S146CM.jpg

I've done my research and I've narrowed it down to the Lobster Freestyle and the Lobster Parkboard.

I am 5ft 7-8in and I tend to do many jumps, butters, some rails and boxes. I would like to ride the rest of the mountain as well. I have been riding for 7-8 years now and my biggest concern is... Will I still be able to ride the rest of the mountain with a parkboard? Or would I need the freestyle board? I think I am advanced enough that I should have no problem with the parkboard, but I just want to make sure I will make the right purchase. If someone could help me out, that would be great.

As far as I know the Parkboard is the equivalent to the Bataleon Airobic and the Freestyle to the Evil Twin. Of these two I can give you an impression.

The Airobic is noticeably softer and great for jibs, rails and so on. It will do ok on the mountain. The ET on the other hand is a stiffer board that will perform better on the mountain but it will not butter or jib as easy. Better for jumps though.

It comes down to your personal preference. Focus on the park, get the park board. Focus on all-mountain, get the freestyle.
