NS Legacy a good beginner board?

I posted this in the wrong section so I'm moving it here.

I'm a beginner rider. I'm 6'1 185lbs. Size 12 shoe size. No park or pipe, ahh maybe once I get better. I just like cruising down some nice groomers and maybe the occasional kicker if it's there.

Is the neversummer Legacy an ideal all mountain board for me or would something softer be better? Softer boards all seem to be very park/pipe oriented so I wasn't sure.

I haven't tried the rocker version of the legacy so I am not sure what it feels like. But the cambered version was my first board and it kicked my butt over and over again. If I could do it over again, I would have bought a softer board.

In that case, would you suggest the Revolver over the Legacy even if it'll see minimal time in the park? Or maybe something like the lib tech skate banana?
