Question Need some help with boards

So I'm looking to get a new board in the off-season when they go on sale. The boards I'm looking at are the Ride Fleetwood 158w, The Ride Machete 157w, or the Ride Antic 158w. I'm 6'3" and I weigh 180 with a size 13 boot. I like to ride everywhere. I've begun learning park stuff and I love to cruise the mountain. What board do you guys think I should rock? I'm open to suggestions and opinions. I want to spend my money on the right board for me. Thanks in advance for any help you guys offer. Also, I'm not stuck on Ride boards, they just seem to offer a lot of wide options. EDIT - In searching around I've come across a '10 K2 Anagram 161cm for $130 still in plastic. Is this a pretty decent board? I have also come across a '10 Jeenyus Fester 155w for $219.95, no tax and no shipping. What do you guys think is the better board? Or should I just hold off until the real off-season sales start and find a better board? I ask because I've only ever bought a brand new board once, and that was 12 years ago, and I got shafted. I had to ride a K2 Dart 167cm for a long time because of it. Anyways, sorry for the ramble and thanks for the help hopefully.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Well, no one even bothered to reply. Oh well. I'm about to buy this board http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT. Any thoughts on it? Just curious if anyone has ever ridden one, or at least has a friend or something that has.
