I have the 09 Jam and love it. For your size a 155 Jam would be ideal for all around riding, 153 for park. I think that price is not terrible since Bataleons are not easy to get.

If you are still skid turning instead of carving, you may find TBT squirrely at first. You will appreciate TBT when you progress. The Jam is also towards the stiff side (at least to my weak legs), which makes it a good all around board for charging, carving and jumps, but is still good in the park because of the TBT makes the edges less catchy.
