Default Switching from a freeride to park board?

Hey all, new to the forum and just wanting some feedback on a new board, as I demoed the 08 Burton UNinc and the 08 Jeremy Jones today, having come off a K2 Nemesis 161 for the last 2 seasons, and had a damn good time on both boards. I'm about 6ft and probably 210lbs with size 12 boots, I love carving pow and riding trees, but also like hitting the jumps in the park and on the side of the runs, and am looking to steer away from an all mountains board to something a little more park friendly.

The boards that I rode today were soooo playful and light compared to my Nemesis, and I am looking for something that is going to replicate the rides I had today for a little less of the price, looking at spending around 450. I was looking at the Lib Tech Dark MTX, but its a little pricey.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

I would recommend taking a look at the Rome Anthem or Neversummer SL. Both board are very versatile. I think the Anthem would handle freeride speeds better (especially in pow) but both boards will definitely take whatever you throw at them. I have both and think both are excellent boards.
