Male Need help picking out a board

Im trying to pick out my first snowboard. Ive never snowboarding before but i have been skating the past 5 years if that helps. Ive been looking for an all mountain board and ive came up with:

the k2 Brigade- K2 Brigade Review by The Good Ride
Salomon Ace- Salomon Ace Snowboard Review | The Good Ride
Burton TWC Standard- Burton TWC Standard
Rossignol Trickstick- Rossignol Trickstick 2014-2011 Review & Buyers Guide

I was thinking the K2 brigade would be my best choice. I mainly want to make kickers, go fast and carve a lot. I also live in NJ so the snow can sometimes be powdery too.
If you guys can help me out id really appreciate it and If you have any others suggestions, feel free to tell me

How about the K2 Raygun? Its a bit more than the brigade but you get a better quality deck that has more tech. Since its a beginner to intermediate board you will have space to grow in the sport.

It also won multiple good wood awards. K2 RayGun - Good Wood 2014 Men's All Mtn - TransWorld SNOWboarding - YouTube

If ur on a tight budget look for last seasons boards on sale or check ur local craigslist for a hardly used one. would save u 40% easy on last years models and more on a 2nd hand stick...
