Scratch the Feather if you want to progress, specially on the East Coast.
It's a beginner board. Easy to ride since it doesn't catch (and doesn't grip either...)
GF swears by her Infinity. Can't tell much about the other boards but I don't think you can really go wrong with either of them.
Oh okay. Yeah I wasn't that keen with the feather either and was leaning more into the neversummers. My younger brother rented a 2013 NS at the snowboard shop and he loved it.
