The blunt is a softer freestyle board, it would work but won't be ideal one you start to push it harder.

Check out the gnu carbon credit or k2 raygun, both good boards for all types of riding. You should be able to find deals on them too. The rocker on the gnu will make it quicker and more nimble to turn, the k2 will feel more stable.

At your weight id be looking for a 157 to 160. With a size 12 I would opt for a wide board, I have size ten boots 22in stance and +/- 15 angles and get drag with boards with a waist width of 25cm or less. Others will tell you your fine on a normal board. It depends on your style of riding I like to carve turns with speed which is when drag happens. It you just cruise around and slide turns drag is less of an issue.
