Its ok to be a noob, you have to start somewhere.
The LF Trip is a tried and true classic shape. I would not characterize it as a beginner board but you could progress faster on this board. The LF Watson classic is a softer landing board and more forgiving board for someone like yourself. It is always hard for a new boarder to pick a shape unless you can ride it before you buy it. With the fins removed for the park, the Trip is still a great board. I would go with the Trip or Super Trip if you want the best for what you are trying to accomplish. You also may want to try the RONIX Vault I think you will like this board alot! Good luck to you!
