Default looking at a new board...

I'm looking to get a new board for this season, and as well as doing my own research I thought it couldn't hurt to ask around. I've been snowboarding for about 2 1/2 years, but I live relatively close to the mountains and I try to get up there once a week during the season.

I mostly do all mountain stuff, but I dabble in park and I'm thinking about doing some more this year. So basically I'm after an all mountain board that can handle itself pretty well in the park when it needs to.

Any suggestions? It would be appreciated.

Not sure what your price range is but the Ride Machete might be a good fit.

I would Look at the DH2, Salomon Drift rocker (Grip if you get powder days), K2 Parkstar, Nitro Rook, or a CAPiTA Indoor FK.

Sorry to bump my 5 page old thread, but I was checking out the DH2 the other day, seems pretty good for what I need and I'm leaning towards that one after doing some more research. While I was at the store I saw the Burton x8, that thing looked pretty bad ass. How does it compare? According to the sales guy it was a beast in the park but how does it handle the rest of the mountain? Also according to him it was a pretty expert board. I wouldn't call myself an expert but I do want something to "grow into". Not quite sure if it's what I'm after or not.

On a miscellaneous side note, I have a very irrational dislike to Burton as a company. I dunno why but I always associate them with all the annoying 12 year old kids in the park, probably because I always see kids with their t shirts.
