Thumbs up

Check ebay.de for nitro, Bataleon, burton, nidecker, jones, never summer and see what they have in your price and board length range. If u find a nice board just google it for the specs and see if its freestyle- park rat worthy

.. and aslo.. on rate 1 - 10 how big flex do i need? If im right lower is more flexable right?
It depends on the brand. Some brands use a low flex to high flex rating scale and some use high flex to low. It's all about how you want to ride. I've already told you the difference between riding a stiffer board and a flexier board. The choice is up to you.

Drake is a shitty budget brand. They're like Liquid or Ltd. Don't get it. If its between Drake and stepchild and Drake... Get stepchild.

you're so cute

Jibbing is any trick that involves a feature. A grind (that is, a slide of any sort on a rail, box, bar or any other feature) is, of course, a jib.
But a stall, tap, or any other trick you can think of that involves a feature, is considered a jib.

Zero Camber is a board that has no shape to it.
A regular cambered board will have an arch between the bindings and will be flat at the tip and tail, whereas a reverse camber board will be flat between the bindings and curve up at 1 degree progressively towards the nose and tail.
zero camber is flat up until the curved nose and tail. this gives you flex as well as stability (however in my opinion, zero camber is a kind of "jack of all trades, master of none" board shape)

Once again, it all depends in what you expect from your ride. A medium flex board will give you good pop, but wont skimp out on presses. It's your call really. Pop is important, but to me, pressing and smooth butters were more important, so I finally opted for a reverse camber board. Snowboarding is subjective like that.

Slightly subjective but I think most people would agree, at least somewhat:

Raven Drake Santa Cruz Nidecker Atomic Stepchild

as stated it's subjective, but i'd think that Nidecker, Atomic, Stepchild are all of the same good quality.

the ranking between those 3 would only change accordingly to the model of board you'd compare.

ex:a nidecker megalight would be better than a stepchild recession or atomic piq.(high end model compared to entry level)

Yeah I wanted to say that, but I was literally naked about to take a shower.
