Default Board and/or binding suggestions

So I'm pretty new to riding. Spent a few Christmas breaks and spring breaks riding. Spending my first full winter on the snow here in Salt Lake City and am considering a new board.

I'm going to mostly be riding groomers buttering a little, jibbing on boxes and maybe rails, and small jumps.

I've only ridden my Burton ConDom and have some EST bindings so if someone can suggest a good Burton board for my style I'd appreciate it. I'm open to other brands I would just need to find some other bindings first and may have to wait for the board one extra season. If you think of a good board that I'd need new bindings for could you suggest some bindings too?

Found a great deal on my current board and bindings on eBay and couldn't pass it up so I never did too much shopping around or demoing first so any experienced input is greatly appreciated!

you can ride a 155 easy for a park board, I have ridden the www when my friend was trying out my parkstar and I did not like the feel at all. Way to soft for me if you ever plan on taking it out of the park. It is a really great board for buttering and jibbing, but so is any board if you put some power behind it. I would just wait if you can and demo this winter then get a board after you try a few.

Get a Burton Dominant, I ride a dominant and it's amazing. It says it's mostly for park but I think it's great for all mountain, the highest they make in the dominant is 159, I ride a 159 and i'm 5'10 155lb and size 9 boot and it's a lil on the big side for me, it should be perfect for u, I ride it with burton frestyle bindings, they work pretty good as well. Hope this helps!

The ConDom is the Dominant with a slight convex from heel to toe to add some playfulness.

I like it but I got it used and it is getting to be in not so great shape..

Oh haha my bad, oh ok, well I've been using mine for about 2 1/2 3 years and it doesnt really have any damage, just miner scuffing. Another board I would recommend is the Burton Custom, my friend has that, he's said before its a pretty good all mountain board, he is mostly in the terrain parks though.
