Default Beginner/Intermediate Snowboard Recommendations

If I can sell my Head Intelligence board (haven't gotten any offers yet.. also where else is a good place to sell other than craigslist??)

I was looking at Ride Agenda 155, Ride Control 155. From what I hear these are pretty good board for someone at my level.

I'm 5'9 155, hopefully go out a bunch this year. I havent snowboarded in 5 years at least, and even back when I did I wasn't very good.

Are these boards good or are there other ones I should be looking at?

Anything around 350 max I'm willing to spend.

What style of riding u do? More like charging,carving slopes in high speed , deep pow ..or for messing around with butters ,small jumps ,180's , maybe some park ? Thats the most important thing when u choose your board.

there arent any big mountains around here, so i wont be going down anything too serious. i dont plan on going too fast, just cruising around and maybe some small jumps. i dont think i'll be doing any rails or anything anytime soon- i'm pretty beginner level. i don't want a board thats going to be too fast and hard to control, i mainly just wanna cruise around have fun and keep falling to a minimum.

i want a board thats forgiving enough where if i slightly mess up it wont have me face planting in the snow.

I think u want some medium flex board , to be forgiving enough but not wet noodle for rails. Around 152-155 is your size. There are many boards which fits this demands.Just find some good deal on last year models. Check some good brands like Never summer , Mervin (lib,gnu) , forum , rome , k2 , capita , arbor , maybe burton if u can find good deal.
