snowboards don't really work that way. back in the day some of them were so stiff they were hard to learn on, but thats not the case so much anymore. they do make some learn to ride rental boards that make learning much easier but most people can pick up the basics of snowboarding on almost any board.
with a board like the custom x, its not like its too advanced for you, but you will not be able to ride it to its full potential for a while, its the kind of board that really gets into its own the faster you go.
the custom x is not a great park board especially if you are going to be smashing it against features and obstacles, it has a vaporskin topsheet construction and its just not really meant for that kind of beating. i think you would like a regular custom more, its more of a playful board.
not sure why the roundhouse is in your list since its a wide board and the others are not, but the arbor wasteland might be a good choice.
