Default board and binding question

hey guys, so im thinking about getting my gear for the upcoming season. I consider myself an intermediate boarder. This year i want to progress in jumping and jibbing. I always ride park, with a little mountain riding. So i have decided on getting a k2 www rocker and burton mission bindings. Any insight and suggestions will be great =]

I own Burton Mission 2009/10 and I'd say you look for something else if you're interested in jumping and jibbing. They are pretty heavy and the highback is pretty big - IMO you don't need it for what you want. Very recently I looked at all the Burton bindings in terms of weight and I would recommend you look at other brands. Some of the other guys on the forum can chip in here - Union, Raiden?

My Union Forces have held up pretty well for a couple seasons. Also look into some K2 Formulas riden before seem to hold up really well.

390 bosses, Union Force SL's, K2 Hurrithanes.

Honestly I think that the WWW is past its time. In the same price range I think the Kink, Artifact, Artifact '85, and Horrorscope are all better boards.
