Eh... do you want board for the park or board for boarder x? You can compromise but then you probably won't be going as fast as you'd like.
The Palmer Carbon is supposed to be pretty fast. Not exactly cheap. If price is more of a concern then you probably need to look around more or wait a little longer. I just picked up the '09 women's version of the Forum Symbol for $140 and it's pretty damn good for the price I paid.
