advice for new board

hey guys, so came across some money so now I'm potentially looking into getting a new board, a little bit about me:
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 170
I have k2 cinch bindings that I would like to keep and just use those on a new board.

Riding style: I am still kind of a newb, this is only my second full year with my own gear and I am kinda in between beginner and intermediate, I like to just screw around on the slopes, all groomers for me, ride everything from green to blacks, and by screwing around I mean buttering and hitting natural jumps, I also do ride in the Park but only jumps mainly, hit a box occasionally but not much.

Budget: About 450 dollars, and the only brands I can get from my store are burton, forum and k2, everything else would have to be shipped to Southern ontario.

I was thinking regular camber for the jumps and stuff, but I hear k2's flatline tech, I think thats what its called is pretty good.... would like to stay away from complete rocker. Twin shaped or close to twin would be ideal too. Any suggestions? would really like to stick to one of those three brands.
