Talking Looking for new board

Hey
I've recently been looking for a new board for next season. I mostly ride park but will occasionally ride all mountain on the pow days. I would be setting the board up with 2012 Raiden Zeros and burton freestyle boots size 9.5. I am about 5'7" and 160lbs and would love a board that was flexy enough to butter and play around the park but also handle a bit of all mountain riding. Sadly, moneys tight so something under $300 would be ideal. I've been looking at the Rome artifact and the 2012 K2 WWW but im not quite sure what size to get.
Cheers

Look for a 2012 Flow Verve or Signal Rocker Light.

Those are probably your best bet to find something under 300 that fits your description. The WWW and Artifact are jib sticks and thus a chore outside of rails and 15 foot jumps.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

151 for a butter/park board you want to ride all mountain? Yeah, I would say so. Unless you get a Rome Shank.

154 I would guess would be ok for you considering you felt a 156 was too big.
