New snowboarder - what board?

Yes, I have snowboarded before and I love it. I want to get my 1st board. I go to the ski resorts and go on the hills there (no half pipes) but will be going to Colorado to go on hills out there. What kind of board should I get? One for freestyle or mountains? I do plan on doing the small jumps when I get better.

Also, I'm 5 feet 9 inches and weigh 170 pounds with 10-11 inch feet. I was told I should get a 155 board.

Any suggestions?

I already explained what type of riding I plan on doing. Was there something else that you wanted to specifically know that I left out in regards to the type of riding?

well if that was your explanation on what type of riding youre gonna be doing, why would you ask if you needed a freestyle board?

just look for a good all around board, most manufacturers have rating systems on their websites

i have pretty much zero experience with different board manufacturers but according to most of the people on here, rome, ride, never summer, and lib tech all seem to be relatively safe bets for good boards

im sure there are other companies im forgetting

Is freeriding the same as all mountain?
