Post help with buying a board

hey everyone,

I am new to the forum, i am 17 years old weight around 68kg highet 1.72meters.
im snowboarding for around i think 7 years since i was 10, and im not the best but i think im alirght for my age.
im not very good though at choosing boards.. therefore if anyone could give me an advise witch sites i should search at, what types of snowboard do i need( i like doing snowpark and normal riding, so i need something that is good for both of them), his size and etc.
also it will be helpful if you could tell me a good snowboard that i should get for my weight and height. money is not the problem so any prize is alright

Thanks everyone for your help, and if i posted this theard in the worng place im really sorry about, and tell me where i should repost it.

Thanks again.

Same height and rough weight as me pal, so anything in the bracket between 152-157 will do you. If you are more focused on the park, go shorter (i.e. a 152/153).

For park work, K2 parkstar is a a good shout, will ride nicely outside of the park too. Otherwise, Ride do some good boards for park riders just look into their website. Burton, you will pay more money for but they're always a good shout. If you've got the money and are intermediate to advanced look at any board with the Flying V, good all rounder tbh.

That should be enough to get you started anyway.
