Spark it in the park.
The Burton Blunt Wide Snowboard is tailor-made for big footed jib fanatics. The flat profile, soft flex, and heavy helping of tech make for a board that butters, presses, and jibs with a telepathic response. Your control gets a boost from the Jumper Cables, which enhance control without making the board stiffer. The scoop tip and tail keep it loose and catch-free, and Frostbite edges crank up the grip, so you get the best of both worlds. Don't let toe drag keep you from tearing the park a new one.
The Blunt's true twin shape and flex keeps it handling the same in either direction, so that switch back lip won't look switch. The tip and tail feature a Scoop profile, which means that the edges are rolled up like a spoon. That'll give you a loose, buttery feel and catch free landings. Frostbite edges bump out under your binding for extra edge hold on firm snow, so you don't have to sacrifice control. The Flat Top profile improves the catch-free ride, while giving you more pop and solid landings as compared to a full rocker setup.
Pro Tip construction in the tip and tail removes any excess material, for lower swing weight and faster spins. Jumper Cables radiate out from underneath the binding to give you extra response, without stiffening the board. The extruded base holds plenty of wax, still runs fast when it's dry, and is highly resistant to impacts, so you can spend more time on the hill and less in the shop.

I'm 6'3 200 lbs. wanted to get this board...
I'm 6'3 200 lbs. wanted to get this board to mess around in the park and do some urban/city stuff too. would the 56 be too small for me? trying to figure out between that or the 59
First lets take a look at your riding level. If you're confident you're a good rider in most terrain you probably won't notice much difference between the 56 and 59. The 59 is going to be more stable at faster speeds but since the board is fairly soft on Burton's scale and reverse camber you probably won't notice the difference between the two. You'd more so look at the 59 if you were buying the board to ride all over the mountain and have a little more of a well rounded board shape to progress your ability.
If this is going to be your primary park/urban board I'd go with the 56. The shorter length is going to give you less swing weight for rotations and a couple CM shorter on the nose and tail to make it just that much lighter and more agile on those box/rail features.
