Buying a new board, any suggestions? + random questions

Ok,little background story, I'm about 16, and 2 years ago, I took a spill and broke my leg badly and was out for the 08-09 season, during which I grew a lot and needed a new board.

I used to generally grab whatever board was availible and use it for a few seasons before I grew too much and had to get a new one, but since I'm nearing my adult size, I think I might as well take a little more time selecting, and decided to come here.

Height: 165 cm/ 5'5
Weight: 140 lbs
Age:15 (16 in about 15 days)
Size 8.5 feet
Freestyle board

I have an unlimited budget.
I generally ride groomed trails, around Mt-Tremblant, Ste. Anne, St Sauvre.
I rarely do rails, mostly kickers, with a lot spin.
I'm not sure if I'll be needing more or less flex either.

Also, I'll be needing new bindigs, any suggestions?

You are more or less exactly my size and ride exactly as i do with the exception i tend to go off groom to do powder runs, i think a 151-153ish Never Summer SL-R fits your requirements exactly.

That or something like a Lib Tech TRS-BTX

'09 Burton Cartel Bindings

Yeah, it seems to be the kind of thing I'm looking for, what about bindings though?

You will probably wont a Mid to high stiffness binding for maximum control if your not doing park jibs and what not...
I myself use Burton Cartels with my SL-R, another binding i've heard good things about are the Rome Arsenals..there are a lot of different bindings out there that would fit that style of riding...

SL-R as Arsenic mentioned would be perfect. Look into the 2010 K2 Believer as well. I have an 07/08 Believer with Rome Targas and find that to be a great combination for pipe and kickers.
