Upgrading Boards

So I really started snowboarding last season. I bought me a burton Bullet Wide 157 and it was a great board to learn on. Save on Burton Bullet Snowboard 164 Blem - Mens Snowboard Snowboarding Gear Equipment

For some reason I am thinking that this board wont cut it and I need something better and more specific for this season. I want something that is good for specifically park but I also want to hit up the rest of the mountain a lot.
Heres my problems,I dont really know what fits me best, everything seems so similar, I have size 12 shoes so do I really need to get a wide board? that really limits my choices. Also i want to keep it around or under $250 so Im prob looking at a 2009 board.
What are the best boards for this description to look at. Right now im looking at the Forum destroyer Travis Kennedy, and Capita Indoor survival but im not set on either. I dont think i want a rocker board either beacuse i want to have plenty of pop.
Any help and suggestions would be appreciated.

Of your choices I recommend the Indoor.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Capita mid life is exactly what you're looking for. Perfect width for a 12 and you should be able to find last years for $200-$250

mid life looks like an awesome choice since its a midwide. Is it the same as the mid life lost?
