New Board Help!

Hey.
I'm looking for a new board for this upcoming season.

I used to ride an Arbor Draft 154, and it was fine.
I'm looking for something more flexible (literally), and that can do well in the park but not suffer on the mountain.
I also need a board that is a bit bigger; perhaps a 158, or anything near that.

Price range? Nothing above $600.

Thanks!

What's your boot size? And what's your weight as well?

Boot Size: 10
Weight: 145-ish.

And I made a Slight mistake. Make that a 156.

EDIT:
I was thinking about the Burton Elite.
Okay choice?

Yeesh, at 145 lbs, a 158 is going to be a nightmare in the park, unless all you hit are big booters with absolutely zero jibbing. Just curious, where do you ride?

Yea. I was overestimating.
155-156.

Mammoth Mountain in California.
Mountain High in California.

Pretty much it.

I'd go smaller if I was riding Mountain High or stick with something in the 154ish size.
