Default New board for a vet

I just recently got back into snowboarding after a 3 year break and I just found out about all these cambers and shit..... So I decided I want to invest in one of these new boards (Primarly for park). Anyways currently I'm riding a 2005 Nate Bozung 157 Technine snowboard with team tech nine bindings I forget the name but ones is red and the other is black and they're from 06. I'm 6'4, weigh about 190 lbs, size 12 boot, and I ride primarily at 7 Springs outside of Pittsburgh.I love to ride park and I'd say I jib just as much I hit jumps so I'd like a board that can do it all in the park. So does anybody have any suggestions for a rider like myself? I've been checking out the skate bananas, but they seems kinda pricey Im trying to stay around the $400 range. Also should I be looking for a wide board since I'm a size 12 boot, but I've never experienced any problem with toe drag?

With a size 12 shoe I would look into a wide board. I have own a wide board and my shoe size is a 12 as far as boards go there are a couple of shops around 7 springs that demo boards, I have the places and numbers on my work email and will shoot you a pm tomorrow
