Default Help me choose a board!

Ok so I'm looking for a new snowboard this season, I ride park almost all of the time (70% jumps, 30% rails/boxes).
I'm not very good yet and I know only some basic tricks and grinds.
I'm 180cm (5.9 feet) tall and weigh 68kg (150 pounds) and my shoe size is 42/43 (american: 8/9).
I'm on a budget so I'm choosing between some last years models that are very cheap.
So please help me beacause I don't really know much about snowboards.
I found some boards that fit the criteria (or at least I think they do)

(poll coming up)

I chose darkstar. Would be really good board to find out what you like. It's a do everything board with a mid flex. I am looking at the parkstar for myself which is the same board with rocker. Also the believer is a good choice although it's a little stiffer and less useful on the boxes and rails.

Darkstar is a fun board. A little soft for bigger riders but really smooth and pressy
