Help on a good park board

so im relatively new at park and have never bought a brand new board(just a used POS). I'm not a beginner at snowboarding just at park i can get air and do boxes alrgiht but i need a board thats light but strong enough to take lots of impact when i biff it. so i'm basically looking for a good board for park but strong, i've been looking at the K2 darkstar is that any good?

the darkstar is a pretty solid all mountain board

Have you looked into the Stepchild brand, Bataleon, or looked at the Never Summer Evo?

This site may help you come to a decision

I ride a Darkstar and think it's a great park board. My question is, what do you consider a beating?

157 seems huge for your weight. I weigh 135 and am riding a 148 and planning on getting a 149 k2 parkstar next year, which is the darkstar with jib rocker. I would say 152 would be a good size for you if you still want to ride some light Pow.
