Default Board help.

I've been riding for 5 years now and take 2-3 trips a year. I'm to the point now where I can hit kickers, rails, boxes and all that stuff pretty comfortably. I like to ride park the most, so I want a board that's good for rails and butters. I've heard that these boards don't do well on slopes and landings though. Is there any board that's good for park but can still land solid and not slide out? I also want to be able to hit slopes fairly well. I've been looking at the 2011 DC PBJ. Also, i'm 6 feet tall and weight 175... what length should i get?

Sorry about all the questions, and thanks in advance

Look at reviews on:

Arbor Westmark and Blacklist 156 ish

Never Summer Evo 155 ish (possibly the stiffer (not stiff) Proto CT 154 for landing jumps - it's awesome!)

I'm sure others will chime in

But people totally LOVE these boards!!!!

The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive 100 Days of Review Recap

100 days of reviews all in one tidy list. Written by our very own Burton Avenger who you probably saw or will see harassing new forum members (be careful you may be next )

Also Nivek has a few reviews in there, including the Westmark for 2012 (BA has the Westmark Review from 2011). I've read those reviews probably 50 times before ordering my board.
