Question Choosing a beginner board

I recently started snowboarding and I love it, my birthday is coming up soon and I've saved some money so I've decided to buy a board my budget is 250-300 (not including bindings), I have found a few boards in my budget that seem somewhat suitable, I will list them below.

I am 14 (nearly 15)
6 foot
9 stone (126lb)
Size 10-10.5 shoe

At the moment I only ride at the snozone in Milton Keynes, it has a small park mostly consisting of rails and a couple of kickers, then a slope which isn't deep or powdery (is that the right word?) well whatever, here's a picture:

The boards I have been looking at are the

-burton ration - 260
-DC MLF -240
-DC PBj - 160
-DC tone
-DC focus

At so on, next year I might be going to a mountain in France or whatever so yeah,

Also do I need a wide board?

On another note I want to get better at rails e.g.

Any help will be much appreciated, thanks!
