I am looking for a new board for next season. I ride mainly park, so what board would i want to buy. I do jumps up to like 35ft, so i need something that can take hard landings.

Go for a burton seven, great board for park riding and very forgiving with the spoon tips.

Burton clash is more a beginner board that's what I stArted riding with. I highly doubt it would perform well off anything over 30

Im riding a DC MLF and I am very happy with the speed and pop off the the tail i am getting. Hits the rails pretty well and easy to adjust/control the board. If you can demo one, I would suggest it.

I think you might have to get something a little more expensive than you may want if you want something that will be good for the park and last for awhile.

The kink is a good intermediate park board.  But also look at the skate banana, pickle, ride machete, ride crush.
I make handmade longboards PM me for info.

Capita Indoor Survival
Ride Dh or dh2 
K2 Parkstar or Darkstar
Rome Postermania or Agent
 Those are the boards I know that are park oriented and aren't super noodles. 
They are generally at most mid stiff compared to the rest of the park boards in comparison to each brand's quiver.

Long hair don't care!
