If you can afford it get a LibTech Skate Banana, they be so mackin' Mr T would be proud to shred with ya. Basically, they're awesome, they have so much tech in them, you get an almighty jib stick, crossed with a free ride plank.
Look for em at SierraSnowboard.com, heapsa people off here have dealt with these guys, and their primo.
About ye booties, myself and few others on here feel that, DC build quality of their boots are sub-par. But that could come down to a lot of manufacturing flaws, basically get something that supports your foot with enough flex for the park.
Props for the street jibbin'.
