you defiantly dont need a wide board. I havent ridden either the park pickle or the hero but a few of my friends have and they say they are both good. I rode the Ride Machete and that was pretty fun. This is a fun site to read gear reviews http://www.angrysnowboarder.com/

well the price range doesn't really matter honestly, i just want a nice and flexible board that has a lot of pop...i hear v-rocker boards are the go to boards and the park pickle, ride has some nice boards but i have no clue which ones are flexible and which ones have a lot of pop...

i ride the burton custom rocker. its a good solid board and should work for you. only buy it if you are also getting est bindings with it. i have cartel est bindings for this board.

burton is using a different system to mount the bindings. they are only using two screws and call it "the channel". see here: YouTube - Burton The Channel with EST How To

all bindings are compatible with it but est bindings are meant to be used with it and the system works very well if used with est bindings. the only drawback is that you have only a limited number of bindings to choose from (burton only).

next time please just google easy questions like this one.

if money really does not matter: go get the evo-r (never summer). its similar to the custom rocker just better and ns gives you three years of warranty.
