Default Choosing a board

Okay all - first post here and I'm looking for help. Yeah, it's another "What to buy" thread! Hope you guys can help me out.

Stats on me:

Height: 6'2"
Weight: 175
Boot : 12 (suggests midwide board, but that's only what I've read)

I'd call myself "intermediate", but have only rented and never owned a board. I'm finally doin it cause I've moved to a slightly colder climate and will start going more regularly. For the most part I've been doing nothing but groomers, but am looking to get more into park riding as I get better. Not looking at any powder where I am so not worried about that.

Looking for something I can ride for multiple seasons (not looking to upgrade year after year) and something that won't break the bank (sub 400 would be awesome).

My biggest problem is that I have a tendency to want the best and newest, but I know my talent really can't justify that most of the time.

So, all that in mind - help me out! I need some suggestions and I need them fast!

Thanks much!
