What board size is good for me?

Weight: 150
Height: 5'7" / 5'8"
Boot size: 9.5
Riding style: Park Only
Age: 18
Body Type: Built
Budget: Within moderation.
Your location of riding: North East

Hey guys.. I have been riding for about 7 years now.. loving every second of it. Right now I ride on a Burton Bullet.. I dont think its flexable enough for me.. I have been looking at the K2 WWW boards.. All i do is ride the park..

1. What size board do you guys suggest? For the K2 WWW board. And also other boards.
2. Do the type of bindings really matter as long as they strap you in tight?
3. Any other board you guys suggest I should ride? I want a noodle pretty much for the park.

I'd add

Bataleon Fun Kink and Aerobic
Nitro Subpop

If you're looking for an absolute noodle under your feet, 148. 152 if you want the noodle to be al dente

Union Contacts are soft for freestyle, I prefer the forces though

Didn't notice your second question re bindings. If you're going to be riding a noodle, you'll probably want a flexible binding for the tricks. Favourites around here are Union Contacts and Rome 390's. You also have the Ride MVMNT series.
