Default What set up?

I'm getting into snowboarding and have been using rentalls for 3 years now so I though it was time for my own board. My skill level is decent (180s, s turns and can ride switch pretty well) and I mostly ride park/freestyle but more on the park side. I weigh 130 pounds and I am 5'9. My boot size is a 10.
Any suggestions for what board I should get? I'm curently leaning towards a K2 Parkstar with Union bindings. Thanks.

First Suggestion

Burton Twin
Exile Bindings
or
Cartel Bindings

the exiles are softer and more ideal for park, but the Cartels are nice bindings so if you want to split the mountain up half and half use the Cartels.

Second Suggestion
Ride DH2
Cartel Bindings

Are you a guy or a girl? You listed one mens board and ones womens board. I guess it doesn't matter, I like the parkstar if you are more park oriented. Union bindings are good in the park, but you may also want to look into ride MVMNTs. I own alphas and betas and I like both better than my union forces.

Yeah sorry I'm a guy, didn't realize that the vinyl was a girls board... But the twin looks awesome, I'm considering getting that board.

twin is cool. Felt a little stiff when I rode one, but I tend towards softer boards

Any thoughts on the Burton Custom X. I rode a custom with custom bindings in Brekenridge and I loved it.
