Stoked to hear that you are ripping it up in PA.
You will get a lot of great suggestions here and there are many solid boards out there that will work well for you.
We sell boards, so I am very biased but here are 3 that I love that won't break the bank:
Gnu Carbon Credit 153 - Amazing for what you want to be doing, Good Wood Winner, Magne Traction
Nitro Sub Zero 152 - Sold as a Street / Rail board, but WAY more versatile than that. Gullwing Rocker comined with a slightly convex/bowed base underfoot (Drifter Base). SICK TECH!
Flow ERA 152- Carbon Rocker dream board. Ultra fun for all mountain freestyle.
