Default Looking for a good park board (seeking experts advice)

I have been snowboarding for about 8 years, I am a park rat. I have a burton uninc 154 and want something strictly for park. I am willing to go up or down in size depending on what is better suited for me. I spin a lot but I also hit some big jumps that requires a lot of speed. I need something that won't be too squirly at higher speeds but can be loose and forgiving when spinning.

Anyone have any suggestions on a board that would be perfect for me? I weigh about 155 lbs., 5 10, size 10 boot.

I second the Jibpan. Such a good park board. You really cant ask for much more. I'm on the Darkstar right now which is similar but if I had to buy another board it would be the Jibpan hands down. For your weight you could get away with the 153 but if you wanted more stability off big jumps you could move up to the 156 and probably not notice the difference on jibs because you're a taller guy. Oh yea the 156 would be better for your boot size too.

I'll throw the Rome Graft in there, too. It is soft enough for butters and the such, but also isn't as floppy as the Artifact/WWW/etc. Thus, it will hold its own off big kickers as well as rails. It's a nice happy medium between the various types of park riding. I had a NS System last year (supposed to be their softest board), but I thought it was way too stiff for the park. Keep n mind NS boards are know to run on the stiffer side. No idea if that has changed for 2009.

I'll throw in the Ride DH, will do what you need. At the same time I would also look at the NS Evo, a couple of my buddies have it and it rocks on the jumps but still flexes nicely on boxes and rail.
