Yes Jackpot VS Bataleon Whatever??

Hi I'm new on here and would love some help with what board to buy please lol..

I would say id be beginner to intermediate boarder. Im looking for a board that is good for all round but i would like to try more park stuff this season.
i Really like the look of both of these boards and can't decide, they are both the same price and both 2012 models. Bataleon is 159 and yes is 156 and I'm 6'1 and around 160 pounds. This will also be my first board as i have been renting

Damn. Neither? The Whatever is a better board but that's too big. The YES is the right size but it's not a great board.

Budget? And what else does your local shop have?

Goliath hands down. No contest. If you choose the CC I disown you.

Right that's it! The Goliath it is. I love the graphics on it and really wanted a bataleon (for a reason I'm not sure of :/) thanks for the help. To put my mind at ease I don't need a wide board do I? Boot size 11.5 US

At least you would be safe then. I road the last years 157wide in size 12 boots and was close to get some overhang. So, unless you do have any crazy reduced footprint tech, I would recommend you the wide version.
