I have nothing bad to say about those choices but I would look at the Rossi Templar for what you want to do. I haven't ridden the Tour but it's rated noodle soft. Templar is a solid intermediate board, very cheap on sale, and more suited to learning carving and riding groomers. Higher quality base as well. $150 at evo outlet. Check the reviews on goodride and angrysnowboarder. I keep pushing it on intermediates and they love it.
