The Heritage is an amazing board and perfect for what you're looking for. It goes really fast, is damp but still capable of a bit of freestyle. The TRS and the SL that have been recommended here are also great but a bit more freestyle oriented. You would have to sacrifice stability and speed with those other options and that only makes sense if you plan on jumping lots (which the Heritage can do just fine). At your weight I would size up a bit though and go with the 160. And don't worry about having to concentrate all the time on a Heritage. I used to own one and it cruised just fine.

Also, forget GNU bindings. They are terrible compared to Flows. If you really want rear entry, go with Flow.

Have fun shredding!
