Beginner/intermediate board advice
 
Hi,

I've gone riding 5 times now, and though I'm still on green runs, I'm steadily getting better. My stats:
Age: 31
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 160
Boot size: 9
Style: Regular groomed slopes mostly. Not interested in parks, but may eventually try some powder riding.
Budget: $300-$400

Here are the boards that I'm considering:
Ride Antic
Ride Decade
Ride Control
Salomon Tracker

I'm looking for a board that I can progress on, but it has to be the kind that won't kill me if I make a mistake :) I'd appreciate any advice from you folks.

Id recommend the ride control 158.

I learnt to ride on one and they are great. They are pretty forgiving but have enough performance that you can enjoy riding them for a couple of seasons. They are really good value boards.

Just what you are looking for.
