Which board is best for me?

I posted last week about the Burton Love, but I've come to terms that it doesn't make a lot of sense to buy a park board just for the design when I don't spend a whole lot of time in the park.

I'm 5'5 & about 155 pounds with I think about a 9 boot size. I'm an intermediate-advanced rider & do mainly freeriding. I don't want to completely rule out the park though, as I'd like to spend a little bit of time there as well. I figure an all-mountain board would be best for me.

I know there's some guys who aren't big Burton fans here, but it's my preference. These are my options:

Burton Jussi 156
Burton Custom 154 or 156
Burton Custom V-Rocker 154 or 156


What do you think? Also, what would you say my ideal board length is? I'm still iffy on that.

If you are going into the park as well and would want a twin I believe the Jussi is. I think the others are directional.

I'd say 154 for size

Thank you for letting me know. Now do you have some input on my actual question?

Anybody else?

I found a great price for all 3, so I'd like to be able to narrow in on one so I can pick it up.
