Yeah, if your all about speed, then stay away from pure park boards.
Park Board: small, flexible, unstable at speed, but great for jumps, spins, and rails.
All-Mountain Board: longer and stiffer than a park board. It will be more stable at speed, but won't handle the terrian park as well.
Freeride Board: Even longer and stiffer. These things are speed demons, but can be hard to ride for a newer rider. They are far less forgiving of minor mistakes (b/c of the stiffness). They are horrid in the park.
So based on what your saying, it sounds like you want an all-mountain board. Great companys to check out are Rome, Atomic, Never Summer, and Burton. Take a look at their respective web site for their all-mountain boards. See what seems to jump out at you, and then come back with any specific question you may have about a given deck.
