That depends on which your going to ride more. The Anthem which the Flag is more or less the wide version of from what people have said will kill everything, park, freeride, pipe whatever. The Slash on the otherhand is leaning more towards the freestyle/jib aspect. If you want to freeride and are looking into riding kickers and bigger features then the Flag should go good. If your looking to jib around, well buy a cheap wreck board to jib with!

But if your gonna ride alot of park then probably the Slash, but if you want to bomb the mountain and also be able to shoot through the park features then the Flag wont go far wrong.

the slash has a slightly directional shape though so it can handle itself in pow and on runs too

think about it this way... really the only place the slash will have the edge is on boxes and rails. The Flag will rip everything better including the booters, powder, groomers, etc...

slightly directional shape is that like the ends arent the same and the flag will still hit rails and boxes fine right?

slightley directional means the tail and tip are almost the same but the front is a little different so its easier to makes to ride around and in powder. if you're not planning to spend more than half your time in park then you should go with the flag
