First do a little research here or other online sources. There is a TON of good stuff out there.

What size boot? What make/model/size board have you been riding? If you ride the entire mountain...where do you spend most of your time?

my boot size is an 11 and iv been riding an old burton board that was my friends but it doesnt really fit me since he was like 5ft 6in. i dont spend much time in the park since i just started but i want a board that will be able to go there if i choose to at some point. mainly i want to just go fast down the hill with good control and jumping ability

You might look into a never summer revolver, judging by what you've mentioned. It's kind of one of those all around sticks.

yeah the never summer would be a good choice. also look at the k2 darkstar or parkstar. you can get em in a 54 wide and they have the right flex, sidecut, and shae to get you all over the mountain. there killer in the park if you want to go there as well.
