Default Buying my first board! Help please!

Hey guys!

I am currently shopping for my first board, but I don't know what exactly to look for. I have been around 5 times and I feel I am a very good intermediate even for how little I have gone. I am 5'7 1/2 and weight 144.. I think I rode around 151 but I tried a shorter board last time (around 145) and it felt a lot more natural to me.

I also don't know any good online places or the new current boards to get. Help if you can!

I am new as well and here are some sites I have been going through. Snowboarding Clothing and Gear from Burton, Volcom, DC Shoe Co., RVCA, Nixon, Oakley, Vans, Reef, DAKINE, Forum, and Zoo York The House Snowboards Snowboard Boots Bindings Clothing and Burton Snowboards, Burton Bindings, Burton Boots, and snowboard reviews - Free Shipping - US Orders Over $50 The last one has a lot of good deals going on but not the selection as the other 2. I am sure some more expirenced people can help you out more.

I'm about your height and weight, and I ride a K2 Fuse, although I don't think they even make those anymore

I would definately ride a K2 WWW (152) is a great park board. Or like mentioned earlier, a rocker/banana board would prevent catching edges (very beneficial for learning to ride switch, when everything seems reversed) So a Lib Tech Banana might be a good choice as well.
