Help and Opinions

I have been riding for multiple years now and am finally getting into freestyle. I have been doing some research but am looking for some opinions. I have a local shop that has a GNU Street for 150 or I have been looking at the GNU CHB for 200ish. Any opinion is appreciated!

Mainly park and some jibbing... we dont have to many pipes around. Also im 6" and 180lbs. Im still riding my original board that i learned on and i rode a friends board which had more flex and pop. So i decided it was time to get something new.

You're gonna want a mid-wide at the very least, unless you like toe/heel drag. Rome Slash would probably rock your socks and oh shoot, pulling a brain fart right now.
