What board, and bindings should i get?

I'm 16 years old and i live in Minnesota. I weigh 165 lbs and im 6 ft tall. Ive been riding for 4 years and im looking for a new board. I spend about half the time in the park and half the time just riding. I want a board with a little more flex because my last board was pretty stiff. I also need the board to be wide because i have bigger feet. I have been looking at the Burton Hero but im just not sure.

For bindings i have been looking at union force because people say they are really responsive and durable but there are a lot of people that say rome and ride bings are good. I don't really have any idea what board or bindings i should get so help any would be nice.

What size are your boots?

If you do need to go wide, Never Summer Revolver-R.

Bindings, Union Force and Rome 390 all have bandwagons. I, myself, just got some 09 K2 Formulas that I'll be trying tomorrow instead of my Force and Contact bindings.

Board wise...id say get the hero. I have the 09 board and its a great twin park board, and I can still freeride well at my local hill.
