Default What do YOU suggest?

Hello, I am new here. I live in NW Indiana, I do most of my snowboarding in MI.
I'm 6'2 180lbs and I ride size 13 boot.
Anyways I've only rode three boards the whole 4 years I have been boarding. I spend all my time riding in the terrain park hitting tables and rails. I own a 159 Forum Destroyer mid-wide that I have risers on to help me from hitting my boots when I take hard turns.
My question is what size of board should I get for riding in the terrain park and doing spins? I can do 360's, but I just feel like my board is holding me back from doing 540's and what not. I've borrowed a few friends boards, one being a K2 154W and a Burton 157W. These boards felt like they rode better, but I'm not sure what is best for me. Any recommendations would be much appreciated, thank you.

I put this in the wrong place, my bad.

Happy ThanksGiving

Try and find a 156 mid wide, or 156 wide board.

You probably liked your friends boards because they were a little shorter and had softer flexes.

Also make sure the flex isn't to stiff, as a softer flex will be easier to spin and ride park.

Thanks jaaxnikols. I was looking at this 156cm/26cm Capita Stairmaster Wide.

I was also looking at these Forum boards
Save on Forum Raider Snowboard 157 - Mens Snowboards Snowboarding Gear Equipment
Save on Forum Stomper Wide Snowboard 157 - Mens Snowboards Snowboarding Gear Equipment

What do you think, any more advice is much appreciated.

Well since I ride a size 13 boot I didn't really think a mid-wide is the best choice because with my 159 even with risers I can still catch my boot in the snow. Thanks nos, hmmm I'm about ready to order this board because I'm heading to West VA soon for some boardings. Any more suggestions of what really is the best board for my size for riding terrain and basically everywhere? The 156 Capita is looking like the one right now.

The Capita stairmaster is a great park board, even better if you can find a Stairmaster extreme as it has an upgraded base.

Will the 156W be to short of a board for me to use on the mountain? My brother just bought a board that's 157CM and has a waist for 26cm. I was planning on getting a board this width but it seems like my boot still has a inch overhang...still confused on what board is best for my size. Any more suggestions?
