That is exceptionally vague. How much have you boarded? Have you rented? What's your style? You're going to have to put in a little of the work yourself. Narrow it down to some boards that you think would work for you. Unless you're paying me, I'm not doing your shopping for you.

The only one I've heard about personally is the Podium. I've heard it was a good all around board, but wasn't exceptional at anything in specific. If you're looking at a park specific board, you may want to look elsewhere. Again, though, I haven't personally ridden it, that's just word of mouth.

It wasnt all to bad, I dont do to much all mountain im usually in the park but its a super flexy/ poppy board so I although it wouldnt be the worst if thats what ur planning on doing for riding I would suggest something stiffer, the skate banana is more of a park board.
