I'd recommend starting with some sort of hybrid version. To go from camber to a full rockered deck doesn't seem like the smartest thing. I have been riding a K2 Parkstar lately and have loved it.
This weekend I got a YES Basic with camrock and it is pretty awesome. Felt comfortable on it 20sec into riding it and on my first run was riding thru icy glades with it no problem. For a board on the cheaper end of the spectrum is def something to consider.
I have also own a NS Legacy and K2 Slayblade.
