Default Bataleon Goliath?

hey everyone, I'm pretty new to snowboarding and I'm looking to get a board for next season. I heard the Bataleon Goliath is a pretty sick board and i'm considering to buy it when the new 2012 model comes out.

I'm about 153 pounds and 5'8, and have 9.5 vans mantra boots. I aim to do quite a bit of park but hit the mountains as well. I like hitting jumps which are on the mountain, as well as the ones in the park and i hit the rails for the first time a few days back, so those are definitely in the equation. i was also wondering what size should i get. i was thinking the 151? Basically i wanted to know peoples feedback on this board and if the board is a good choice for me and what i wanna do.

also if anyone has a board which seems to fit my preferences go ahead and post them on. i'm pretty open minded so i dont mind looking into other boards too.

the GOLIATH is an amazing board
freestyle twin allows you to do anything and everything on the mountain
it is a stiffer flex

if you want a little softer flex try the WHATEVER
i am 6 ft tall and 160 lbs and the WHATEVER is the board i LOVE
i can take it in the park and shred the whole mountain

both great boards you just need to figure out what flex you want

any binding you choose should be fine
i am partial to UNION bindings but whatever floats your boat!
