Thumbs up Need help with a new park board

Hey guys,

Here's my somewhat tricky story.

I've been occasionally cruising local hills in Moscow area since '99 - maybe not enough to call myself even a semi pro-rider, but still I gained much experience with a now-wasted piece of wood I was riding (Burton Custom '97 - the one with a turtle and corals), so I feel myself pretty comfortable controlling the board even on high speeds.
Now I'm pretty much determined to develop my freestyle skills, so I finally wanted to get myself a decent park riding board to learn jumping.

And that's where I'm kinda puzzled - mostly because of diversity of options in overall and my inability to choose a wide board that fits for this goal.
I'm 165lbs, have 12-13 footsize, been considering GNU Pickle, Arbor Roundhouse or something like those.
Budget is around 700$.

Would appreciate any tip regarding those boards or any that might suit me better.

Cheers!
