Thumbs up Need help with a new park board

Hey guys,

Here's my somewhat tricky story.

I've been occasionally cruising local hills in Moscow area since '99 - maybe not enough to call myself even a semi pro-rider, but still I gained much experience with a now-wasted piece of wood I was riding (Burton Custom '97 - the one with a turtle and corals), so I feel myself pretty comfortable controlling the board even on high speeds.
Now I'm pretty much determined to develop my freestyle skills, so I finally wanted to get myself a decent park riding board to learn jumping.

And that's where I'm kinda puzzled - mostly because of diversity of options in overall and my inability to choose a wide board that fits for this goal.
I'm 165lbs, have 12-13 footsize, been considering GNU Pickle, Arbor Roundhouse or something like those.
Budget is around 700$.

Would appreciate any tip regarding those boards or any that might suit me better.

Cheers!

Hey have you considered any bataleons? an evil twin or global warmer would def suit the kinds of riding you are looking to get into and when you start going for spins the tbt is very forgiving.

If it were me, Salomon Villain 155w, Nitro Rook 156, Flow Era 155w, K2 Parkstar 154w, or a Fastplant 156w.
