Need a good Park board

So I am trying to get into Park riding a little more cuz I am usually an allmountain-freeride rider. My ability level in the park is intermediate, i can do a 180 jump boxes, do some grabs (nose tail indie) and 50/50 a straight rail.
Does anyone have a suggestion on which board i should get for riding park?
The boards that I found are the Salomon Villian, Salomon Sabotage.
I also want to get into buttering a little more so i thought about the Ride crush since its a really soft board.
I am 188cm tall and have a boot szie of 12 so i would need a wide board.

Not sure what your price point is, but maybe just wait this season out... And this summer pick up the 2012/2013 Skate Banana. Great board, and it'l be a good price!

Maybe should have said that i prefer Camber boards over reverse camber, i have ridden a lib attack banana before and i didnt really like the feel of BTX Cuz its just not that clean oft a Riding style. Also There is no real price limit.

If your looking into park boards with a camber profile check out the Signal Park, Arbor Del Rey, and Bataleon EvilTwin/Whatever.

Sabotage has the camber profile you're looking for, plus you can find a 158 wide on the-house.com for $300.
