Default I want my own board

I've only been twice, but have fallen in love with snowboarding. I really want to grab a board sometime in late March because I know they'll be cheaper then. Obviously I'm a beginner, but am doing really well getting down green and blue trails, I still fall often, I can turn and stop well heel side and well enough toeside.

I want a beginner board that will last me a while and allow me to progress. I want to be able to learn on the slopes and in the park!

Some boards that I've looked at:
Burton gypsy
Rossignol frenemy
Rossignol gala
Ride compact (I'm leaning towards this one)

Any suggestions or advice would be sweet. Thanks!

*****By the way:
I am 5'4 / 5'5
I weigh about 110
Any suggestions for board length would be good too, I was thinking something like 143
