Intermediate Boarder need advice for first board!

So it's finally time to stop wasting money on rentals. And I need advice for what I should get, I'm prob gonna be getting into some park stuff this year but not like hardcore. The board I've been looking at is the K2 Fuse from last year. Its a 155 and from what I can tell looks pretty good for me and I found a used one for $165. Want to keep cost down, like below $300 for the board. Anyways more recomendations would be nice or is the Fuse good?

Also I'm a little nervous that 155 might be too small for me even though I like small boards. I'm:

about 5'11 or 6'0
and a mere 130lbs

Appreciate it so much if someone can help me with this. If you'd rather chat my AIM S/N is: VMattyV

Thanks!

First off, 155 probably isn't too small for you, my roommate rides a dh 156 i believe, and he's about 5' 10". I haven't heard anything about the k2 fuse, you might wanna look into the lib tech youth in asia. I was in my local shop today and that is what the guy recommended to me, since I too am looking into doing more park stuff and jibbing. He also said the youth in asia board handles pretty well at high speeds. I was just on ebay and saw one for like 200 including shipping. I think it was last year's board, cause that seems ridiculously cheap.

Board length goes by weight more so than height. Your weight determines the length based on the flex pattern of the board... you should be fine with that set up
