The Durability of Park Boards

This isn't any pressing need, but I figured I'd answer the question now to get it out of the way...

How durable are park boards?
I'm mostly an all mountain type of guy (hope to eventually get into some backcountry stuff), but I was thinking of getting a park specific board as well to dick around on. If I'm just starting should I get a shitty board by a low quality brand to start out with? Or would something higher end actually last a long time? I'm just not too familiar with park basics...

Also, is there a huge difference between directional twins or regular twins in terms of learning? There are some pretty cheap directional twins, but I'm if I should get an actual twin instead...

Finally, if I got a freeride board, do you guys think I could just use my Ride Control as my park board?

from my experience its not the riding that breaks the board its kids hitting your board in the line up.

some brands add a little bit extra into there park boards that add durability. some things that i really like is ride's "cleave-edge" and nitro's "rail-killer" edge and rome's brass edges. also ride's slime walls and nitros scratch&rip base and k2's p-tex topsheet. but as entry level park rider you would have to expect all those falls and dings to take a toll on the board. Its inevitable...

Ahhh, thank you both.
I'll start looking into those companies entry level boards and seeing if they have any of the features you mentioned.
Thanks a ton!
