i just got the nitro team and it seems like a good transition board from allmountain to park. I had a stiff allmountain board before, the nitro team is much more flexible (and has twin ends)

I also own a nitro team, it is a transition board but if you want a pure park board i'll probably go for something else imo.

indoor survival FK or non-FK.  For an advancing park rider, I'm making an assumption, but you'll want a board stiff on the outside, but flexible on the inside.  The stiff ends are good for pop.  Also, if you're advanced, stay away from reverse camber, or if you want reverse, go with hybrid camber.
Did you google it?

I agree that if you are looking for all around park snowboard, stay away from a reverse camber. Although they can be really fun to press and jib, I think they get sketchy on bigger jumps. I would recommend a hybrid rocker like C2, maybe EC2, Flying V, etc, to get the best of both worlds. If you are looking for a more jib specific deck, then maybe try reverse camber. If you do get a reverse camber, maybe try a BTX snowboard because IMO, magnetraction really helps grip onto ice and sketchy terrain.

Go with a hybrid.  some sort of rocker camber... right now im riding a signal omni which has camber between the feet and rocker after the bindings.  The rocker makes it fun to press and the camber helps on big jumps.  Ive taken it on upwards to 50 footers.
I make handmade longboards PM me for info.

I would say Capita Indoor Survival. You could go either FK (reverse camber) or regular camber I don't think it would make that much of a difference in your situation. The FK is going to be a little bit easier to play around on with presses and butters if that interests you at all. I was between that and the Horrorscope FK but I ended up going with the horrorscope because it's a little softer. The Indoor is going to handle better all mountain though because of the stiffness it will be more stable at higher speeds.

I ride the 2011 DC MLF. It's a great freestyle twin, regular camber, for the mountain and is extremely stable on large kickers and booters. I feel it's the best of both worlds. Its alright on boxes and since i dont ride rails, i couldnt tell you how it performs there. Not the #1 park board and not the #1 all mountain board, but this board can do park and mountain, both, equally very well. I'd highly recommend it since it handles both aspects of riding very well.

Ive got an MLF too. I agree it's not #1 board for park or mountain, buuuuut, do you think you can find a better board all around, Im not sure, but you will not hate it. The tailpop is great for kickers and I think its a stable board at high speeds. Switch riding is a breeze.

Hawkeyepnx is absolutely right. Switch riding on the MLF is a lot easier than other boards I've ridden. I agree with Hawkeyepnx 100%. You definitely won't hate. By all means I am no where near a pro, but I charge the mountain hard and the MLF has never let me down. Good edge hold, a ton of pop, very forgiving on landings, turn initiation / transitioning from edge to edge is very smooth, and this board is extremely playful. Can I say any more positive things about it?

I've found that the Burton Custom is too stiff for a park board.

Something like the skate banana or park pickle are primarily park boards, but are also capable of all-mountain riding.

Things to determine:
Park riding preferences-- % of jibs/jumps ratio
Camber prefernece--regular, zero, reverse, hybrid etc.

Long hair don't care!

Agree with the above...the Burton Custom is a fairly stiff all-mtn board. I've put it away for all but the biggest hills I can get to. Otherwise I'm riding a Sierra Reverse Crew. Too fun to put down.

What about a Stunt?

I wouldn't go with a Burton Custom. I think it would be too stiff for the kind of board you're looking for. Capita and Ride both make a couple boards that would fit this description pretty well.

Burton Hero is my favorite go-to board  for everything, park, pipe, black diamonds, anything I throw at it. Soft enough to be really fun, but still holds a good edge on the steeper stuff (and that's even after I took a file to the edges).
''Growing Old is Mandatory, Growing Up is Optional''..............          +18/-12 degrees goofy . Burton Hero 152 and Triad EST,    Burton Dominant 146 and P1.1
