Default Shop recommendations - am I getting upsold?

I called one of my local shops for for board suggestions. I said I'm 5'11",145 lbs, beginner, looking for a forgiving board to learn on. I don't have any park aspirations. Just all mountain cruising and eventually the occasional jump. Here's the list of boards he gave me, all in the 155/156 range. He said he was recommending some freestyle boards for their softer flex, saying they'd be more forgiving. Is he trying to sell me more board than I need? I was thinking more about Ride Control, Nitro Revolt, Forum Stomper/Recon FYI, I already bought a 158 Forum Warrior which I've decided is too much board for me at this time - so I'm looking to go in a different direction than that. Here's his list.

Never Summer SL
Burton Custom
Rome Graft
Ride DH
