Any good boards for around 200

I live in the UK and have always wanted to go snowboarding in the french and switz alps but my family isn't really the active holiday type, im going to be 18 soon so i will have the chance to go out and learn to snowboard.
I am looking for a board around 200 with a maximum budget of 260 that will work for some jumps and just downhill stuff. No half pipe or park specific boards, but a board that will allow for jumps, flips etc
This budget is in GBP not euros or dollars.
Im don't care about looks if its a good board.
Cheers for any help
Also I am size 6 height 5 ft 4
And weight varies from 48kg to 60kg depending on how often im weight training

Honestly.. I'm not sure if you can buy a good board in the UK for 260gbp. Maybe check UK classifieds for used boards?

I should say board, bindings would be hard to buy at that price new.


Check out this site...

Hope it helps.

I got a YES Basic for 270 from SS20, which is a class board. Just look for stuff from the previous seasons and you'll be good.

Ok
So change of plan then
What would be the cheapest board i can get that is a good all rounder, and good flex for jumps and tricks.
Its seems hard to find one for someone who is 5 ft 4 and size 6 feet so help is appreciated.
And what are some good bindings for that size?
I have seen some cheaper Burton boards but they seem a little big and are around 300
