Smile help... i need new board asap!

hi. can anyone out there give me some advice on which board to buy?? i currently ride(not very well- which is why im switching boards)a 4 yr. old burton feather, but im looking to purchase the 5150 09 empress or the 09 salomon radiant. My concern is regarding the "directional" issue of the empress- i tend to switch often, and i wonder if that will be a huge problem with a directional board.... also, the salomon is more of a directional twin, but it isnt as narrow waisted as the 5150 claims to be. im 5' 1'' and about 110lbs(so, im a light rider)..and im definitely not an advanced rider by any means..but i am trying to better my skills. Help- im going on a big boarding trip in 2 weeks!!...and there are no reviews on either board anywhere!!..thank you.

08 Option Bella 142 - $252.97 (45% off) (also here if you have a dogfunk cart going)

Much better than those 5150 and Salomon pieces of shit.

It is a directional board.

Another option would be the Rome Vinyl.
