looking for a good board

i've been snowboarding many times and now i'm looking into boards. i mostly ride park and rarely ride anywhere else. i'm 5'9" and 135 lbs. i'm not new to riding, just new to buying equipment. i need a board and bindings, but anything suggestions will help.
i've looked at Ride DH and Forum Grudge, but they're a little pricy. i just need something that will do me well while getting air and sliding rails.
any suggestions? money isn't too much of a problem, but i'm not going to spend a crazy amount

Atomic Hatchet is right up your alley. Get something in the 147-150ish range. It's cheap, and retardedly durable. Or an O-Matic Wigg.

What kinda of air are you planning on getting? No more than 45ish? If so I love my Kink... it's a jib board, but I can make it work on 45ft airs. It can get a bit squirly, but it works. Anything more than 45 ft, and it would suck... but it is a jib board. If you're planning on getting more air, look at a Hachet.

life IS good.
