the dh is the perfect balance of a board this great for jumps and rails, wheras the www and kink are better for just rails. i say, get the dh or the darkstar, they are stiifer than the www, better for jumps and going fast, but still not too stiff

expanding on wut mike said.
 
The DH is great for rails, although not as good as the kink. The DH is the perfect mix for jumps and rails, I rode one for most of the year last year. This year they added slime walls (adds rail durability and dampening especially good for rails), never mind on the nose shortening, only the dose. It is also noticably lighter then last years
 
I would definately get the DH or Darkstar if your looking to start shredding jumps along with rails
