Default 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?

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.
