Default Freestyle board

Im looking for a new freestyle board that would work for me.

Im 6 foot and 205 pounds, but im 5% body fat so i think i could go for a smaller board than one for my size.
another setback is I wear a size 13 boot so I need a wide board.
Budget is 700 with some freestyle bindings to go withe the new board.

thanks in advance

All mountain freestyle or park?

If park, jibs, jumps, or equally both?

If all mountain, twin?

Check the 158 Signal Park Flat. I'm riding the Flat right now as my park board and it's solid. Really really fun.

I know its not a "wide" per se, but with a nearly wide classified waist width of 25.8 and an 8.0 sidecut its basically a wide. I guess more of a midwide, but either a midwide or wide is what you should be looking for.

How's your leg strength? Or is most your weight more up top? This will influence board choice if you are as "strong" as you are ensuing.

leg strength and upper body are about 50/50. Squat around 550.

Cool. Also look at the Nitro Rook and Flow Era. Same sizes pretty much.

You've got some good leg strength, so boards will generally feel a bit softer for you than for others like me that are built like athletic 13 yr old girls.
