Default Choosing gear for beginner snowboarder

Hello

I'm looking to buy my first snowboard gear. I'm a female, 5'6", 130 lbs (so I'd be getting a 147cm board)... I've been up at least 5 times, still can't do S-turns though but that will come in time. I've been looking at different stores and so far I've narrowed down my boots and bindings to the Burton Sapphires and Burton Lexa.

For a board though, I have several choices...

K2 Skyla - K2 Skyla Women's Snowboard - Snowboard Shop > Snowboards > Women's Snowboards
This one I really like.

K2 Luna - K2 Luna Snowboard - Women's from REI.com

Burton Troop - Burton Women's Troop Snowboard - FREE SHIPPING at Altrec.com
I don't like the graphic but I know it's a good board.

I think I take a long time to learn, so I'd like to get something that I'll be able to learn on pretty quickly... at the same time, I won't be doing any advanced stuff anytime soon so maybe I don't really need a more advanced board. Which of these boards should I get? And if anyone can recommend another board, that would be awesome.

Thanks in advance!
