Default Need any expert opinion about boards

So I started riding last year and went up about 20 times and became (i think) fairly good. I can get down the mountain pretty well but am not great with jumping yet but hope to be this year. I rode all last year on an M3 Discord 156 and thought it was ok, I didnt know any better. So now im looking for a good all mountain board, more towards carving than jumping. Im 6'2 and about 175lbs. So any recomendations on size and type of board for that would be awesome. also, I thought it would be nice to have a board just for messing around in the park so I got a GNU street 154, Is that going to be too short? Thanks guys

Where do you ride? East or west coast?

Westcoast. I live in the cascades in Washington. I usually go to Snoqualmie, about 3,500 feet, or Crystal, I think its about 5,000 feet

Eh, it's a bit on the short side. I'd bump up to a 157-ish.

Any advice on what to look for when im looking for an all mountain type rather than a park board?

I'd say go with a board in the 158-162 range. You shouldn't really need a wide or midwide board so a regular width should do just fine as long as your feet aren't growing...
