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

i am partial to UNION bindings but whatever floats your boat!
