Trying to find a Board?

im 5'9 130 punds and shoe 9.5 . ive been looking trying to find a board trying to find one thats good for park but also able to do the 40ft jumps at least. i was looking at the whammy bar but ive been reading that its not good for going over jumps higher than 20ft. i have also been looking at the burton Hero and so far ive seen only good reviews about it for being able to do rails and the jump just fine. i just need help deciding if one of these boards would be good for me or if theres a better board out there that i may not know about. thanks.

The Burton Hero would do well for sure. Whammy Bar if you wanna die off jumps.

I highly recommend a look at the Signal Park Flat, Arbor Westmark, Nitro Rook, Flow Verve, or a Bataleon FunKink.

Now im trying to decide between the Arbor Westmark, the Funk kink and the Burton hero. so i want a board that is ok for buttering some rails and jumps. and all of these boards seem to be able to do that. its hard for me to decide what one to get because i don't know snowboards very well. right now i have a salomon drift and i don't like it very well first because its way to big for me its a 156 or 57 not sure but i cant do anything but bomb the hill on it haha. out of these three boards do any of you have a preference.

Westmark > Hero > FunKink.

Or whichever can be had for cheaper.
