Default Looking for a freestyle only board

I am looking for a board to use for park and rails only. Not really looking to drop over $300. I am 6'3" and around 180-185 lbs and I wear a size 12 boot. I'm new to the park stuff, I've only been riding for about a year but have gotten pretty decent at riding the blacks and have recently found a fondness for hitting jumps. I ride a Flow Infinite 164 wide and I am very pleased w/ its performance. I'd like to hit some rails but cant stand to scratch up my Infinite as I am very fond of it. I also ride Flow M11 bindings due to the fact that everyone I ride w/ skis, and would like to pick up some decent freestyle bindings to pair w/ the board. I would like a board and bindings setup I can take to the park and beat up and not feel bad about it. Any help would be appriciated.

Also,I've been eyeing the forum youngblood but im not sure what size I should get

im gonna throw this out there for bindings because i can guarantee this i what people are gonna suggest for park bindings. Check out the Rome 390's, I haven't ridden them personally but i have a couple friends that ride them and swear by them, and I plan on picking up a set for my new park board I just ordered.

As for a park board, I just picked myself up a Neversummer Revolver-R, its a wide park board with rocker/camber tech in it, I dont get mine till tuesday so again i cant tell you personal experience about it but I've heard nothing but amazing things about it. And i know its over the $300 you were looking at, but daddiesboardshop has it on sale for $385 ride now, normally $450 on most sites.

Go for Nitro T1 158cm. U'd have to spend more then 300 bux tho.
I've heard good things about this too, Ride Kink 159 Wide Snowboard*::*Mens*::*Snowboards*::*Outkast Sports | Buy Snowboards and Skateboards online at Outkast Sports Snowboard/Skateboard Shop

Is the scaremaster 156wide a large enough board for me?

Yes. It should be just fine. I'm 6'3", 215lbs and size 11 boots. I ride the Stairmaster 156W (same board different graphic). If you wait a bit longer, sierrasnowboard usually puts their current year gear on sale for 50% off. I bought my Stairmaster last year for ~$150 sometime in Feb IIRC.
