well, of the few park boards i have ridden, the K2 WWW is an excellent one. Very poppy, soft, easy to jib.

I second the WWW. I have one. I love it. It is amazing in the park and can definitely hold up to most other riding conditions. For park/urban, I hear the Artifact Rocker is a great board as well. There's also a few other threads on here about park board preferences. I'd look around. There's a lot of great info on park specific decks.
Shop smart... Shop S-Mart.

What do you prefer to ride?
something ridiculously soft?
camber,rocker,camrock,flat?
try to remember past experiences with boards and the details of what you liked and didn't like.

Rome Artifact, K2 WWW, Arbor Draft

Basically the top of the segment where jib and buttery goodness is concerned. The board won't make you a superstar, but selecting the right one will at least help you develop.

You can find out other professional, no-bollocks recommendations here: http://www.thegoodride.com/ It cuts the crap that you'd normally hear around here or other forums.

I would not advise the k2 WWW. I personally have ridden it for 150+ days and the only good thing i will say is that that board can take a beating .Other than that the board carves terribly and the pop isn't anywhere near good. As the, "All black shredder" on youtube said, "This board carves like a door." I would have to agree with him 100%. And good luck charging on a WWW. Speeds over 25 mph (Clocked on EndoModo a cell phone app) are extremely sketchy.Also the Rome artifact is a wet noodle as far as flex goes and i have first hand watch that board snap while hitting a pvc rail. My friend loved the Salomon drift. Also i would check out the nitro currency, i have heard great things about that. The Signal park rocker light looks like a fun park board. Then of course you have the good ole capita park boards that everyone and their dad loves... Capita Horrorscope, Capita Ultrafear.

Cant go wrong with a Capita Indoor or Stairmaster/SMX either.  Me personally, Im a fan of cambered decks and some hybrids (mainly C2 and Camrock).  Personally, I feel no real difference in difficulty of messing around and jibbing on cambered vs. rc or flat camber.  I feel that if you know what you are doing, you can do just fine on pretty much whatever is thrown your way.  Its your preference though, as I am not you, nor do I ride the same exact way you do.  

Think about what you are looking for as far as flex, shape, bend and what not, and go from there.  Basically, do you want soft/stiff, twin/directional, camber/reverse/hybrid etc.  Now reading a bit I realize that I am almost reinforcing what has been stated above.  Good luck and happy shredding

If your looking for something to beat on, I got a 157 ration (used) for $50 which is an awesome board, great flex, something you can beat on.

I have a 2012 forum destroyer 158 for my park board, things bomb proof, takes so much beating and always performs.

2012 Salomonder 156, Its a fun flexy board, I broke mine after 5 rides, havent tried to warranty it yet, but I snapped it landing bad.

2009 K2 WWW, I got this used (and trashed) from my buddy for $30 and it was my old park board, I beat it until the edges fell off, awesome board.

My top two are the ration and the destroyer.

I find myself admiring the Never Summer boards right now.  I'd say you ought to check them out as they look good and some might still be made domestically.  As to performance tho, there haven't been many reviews for the new season's stock yet.

I have never tried their boards but they seem like a rad, solid company. 

I have a Capita Indoor Survival and I love it man. Its pretty flat here in Ohio so I'm at the park the whole day. I feel like I really stepped up my tricks when I got this board.
