I would suggest a Never Summer SL or Cobra. Probably a 161. I am 200lbs 5'10" and I find the SL to be a great go anywhere, do anything quiver killer. The cobra is a little stiffer and struggles a little bit in the park for me but still slays everything else.

check out Capita's Black Snowboard of Death. It's a rocker/camber hybrid with great control and stability and nice pop. A bit more on the agressive side, but you can still flex it when you want to. They have a patented tech called Death Grip which is similar but not equal to MagneTraction but way better than Frostbite edges. Makes for great carves. Plus it's a sick graphic this year. Almost bought one myself but settled for a Mod Rocker instead

NS Sl, Heritage, or Cobra. I have a Heritage and it's one of the best boards out there. It beats any of Burtons's $800+ boards.
