First board

Okay so I am looking into to buying my first snowboard. I'm an intermediate rider. 65/35 between mountain & park. I like carving down the mountain but I also like flying down. I'm just beginning to do some grabs while going off jumps. Being that I'm only gonna get better I want a board that's solid for my current experience but also one that I won't outgrow after a few seasons.

That being said since I'm gonna be hittin the park more often I wanna board that is all mountain but it also a good park board. I've looked into the fastplant and I'm getting mixed reviews on it. I can't tell if it's too parky or not. Anyone have any advice or previous experience with it or other boards that are similar? Also any recommendations for other boards

Check out the Rome Reverb Rocker. I have an Agent Rocker, and I've heard the Reverb is similar, but it leans further toward park than the agent. More flex to it for park.
