Default Best Freestyle Board for me

weight 126 lbs
height 5 ft 6
boot 10

i was going to get a 152 rome agent( only size in stock) but have realized its way too big for me so im looking for something abit smaller in the 148-149 range i can spend about 200 on the board and am looking for something that excels in the park but is still good on the whole mountain, like one board for everything. also please suggest somewhere i can get it from if you know somewhere and some bindings that would go good( am thinking about getting ride contrabands).

also im in the uk so if you know somewhere that ships to there please include the site.
am thinking about the simon chamberlain stepchild or the signal park but am open to suggestions
cheers

there isnt a better allmoutain freestyle board IMO.
betaleon ET is great for jumps but not fantastic for jibs, burton custom is to much freeride, ride society < rome agent. all the boards i considerd were great but not as good as the agent.

You are better off on another freestyle board that is shorter in length, rather than the agent that is too long for you

getting it a little two big for you will result in a trade off. It will help you in the freeriding as it will be more stable in hard turns and speed, but it will be a little heavier and harder to spin. So if you are looking for more park, then I'd keep looking, but if you're comfortable with that trade off then great. I've never had the chance to ride an agent, but most people say they are a good mix of park and freeride.
