Help selecting snowboard

Hey everyone,

hopefully you have some advice to help someone releatively new to snowboarding. I have been progressing well and I would say that my skill level would be beginner to intermediate. I can do small to medium kickers and land 180s sometimes. Riding on black runs (Australian) is also fine.

Im about 6 foot tall and about 83 kg.

Im looking for a good all round board as I would like to futher develop my jumps/spins as well as general mountian riding ability.

For my size should I be looking at a board around 159-162?

I am from Australia but looking to head over the US for their winter (Tahoe).

I was hoping to pick up an 2009 board because it appears they are about half the price.

A couple of questions:

What size board should I be looking at?
Could anyone recommend some good boards given my experience/style?
Where are some good places online or in california where I may be able to pick up a bargin.
