New board for 560$

Hi, I been riding for a couple of years and looking into buying a new board, I been looking on the burton custom and burton process, I am looking for a Board that is really good at the park and at big jumps and rails( no pipe I am scared of them), and also is good for fast going and regular snowboarding. powder isn't that important but it would be awesome if it was somewhat good at that too.
I am 5.11 and my foot size is 12 or 11,5 depends on the boot.I am open for any board brand, do anyone have any suggestion?

I would go a Gnu Forrest Bailey Space Case 159.
Maybe like a 160 wide Jones Mtn twin.

Sorry man, I meant pipe, not park. My English isn't good, the Norwegian in me is screwing it up

Oh shit sorry just read that you were 5'11 thought you were 6'5 don't know where that came from.
Alright I would definitely go with a K2 fastplant 156 wide. With your feet you're going to need a wide board.
If you had smaller feet I'd tell you to go Yes Asym but your feet are too big.
