Get yoself an indoor survival, or an Ultrafear (i.e. if you can get ahold of one) ... absolutely s-i-c-k. Horroscope is fun too if you like a dedicated park noodle.
I go the 2011 Ultrafear and it is absolutley retarded fun (ive owned most other brands and styles and it sleys them all). Raised my riding to a new level and I couldnt stop smilling for the past 3 weeks.
They do wear terribly (i.e. the top sheet will chip like a mofo over a season, unless you file back the outer edge) but the ride, feel and pop of these boards are second to none.
Amazing, amazing sticks, especially if paired with the right binding to let the board true flex.
OR alternatively if your not an anti-megacorp person, the new 2011 burton custom and joystick are also tons o fun too, as are the new NS range.
To clarify, I think you may be looking for the DH2. The DH has positive camber and would be a better board for hitting big jumps and going fast. The DH2 will serve a similar purpose but be a little more playful and better for butters and jibs. Also consider the Ride Machete. The Capita suggestions are good too.
