Lightbulb Buying First Snowboard

So I've recently started snowboarding with a basic all mountain 154 snowboard and they were great but they were extremely flat. I felt like I couldn't get any pop as I try to progress with my level with the park and jumps.

I've decided to buy my first personal one and was looking towards a Burton Custom 154 cm (Camber - not flying v, x, or process)

Height: 5'10
Weight: 155
Shoe size: 10.5 US

I can easily ride down black diamonds and would like to start learning tricks.

What do you guys think about this board and if its a right suit for me. Thanks in advance.

Custom camber is a great choice. Enjoy shredding.
Snowboarding, the pure awesomeness of it trumps all possible injuries.

Hey there, personally I'd say you're pretty much on the money. Burton Customs are a solid model - and with a camber board you'll get lots of control - but heaps more pop than a flat camber board. Flat boards feel dampened and unresponsive - and are suited for boxes and rails. The length seems about right for someone your height and weight too. Good work...! Dave
