Need a 2012 board, want to try something new.

First off: Some stats!
-----------------------
Height: 5' 5" (Short, I know, right?)

Weight: 165

Experience: 3rd season. Beginner-Intermediate. (Some small jumps. Blue trails.)

Style: Freeride (Fast!) Some Park, Some freestyle. (Mostly Freeride / All mountain)

Size: Rode a 148 last year, gonna go for a 151/152 this year.

Price Range: Probably somewhere around $420 usd.

Boot Size: 8

Surface: Packed Powder/Granular (Man-Made/Real Combination) Grooms.
-----------------------
Enough of that! Last year I hopped on a GNU Carbon Credit 148 with Union Force bindings and had a hell of a time.
While I would like to get another Carbon Credit, I would love to try something new, Maybe a Burton or CAPiTA.
I was looking at the Burton Process V-Rocker, or any CAPiTA, really, I don't know.
Any board you can think of will be appreciated.

I'm assuming you want small cause you have a small hill to be on?

At 165 you should be aiming for like a 152-154...

Look at the Signal Park Flat, Arbor Westmark, or Bataleon Whatever. 3/4 of my favorite fun time boards for 2012 that I've ridden*. The fourth is the Arbor Blacklist, but its a midwide and smallest is comes is 154.


*Haven't ridden a Park Flat, but I have ridden enough Signals and enough zero cams to know I'll love it.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Right, I hear a lot about the Bataleons, do they really shape up to what people make them out to be? At my skill level, will there be any downsides I should worry about?
