Default Suggestions on a park setup post-newb

Hey guys been lurking these forums for a while now just checking things out. But it hasn't been until now that I actually need advice from people who know what they're talking about.
Alrighty so here I go...

I'm 5'10', and 135(140ish)+ lbs, boot size 9.5/10. From the Midwest, specifically Michigan, most of the runs are groomers and the verticals aren't higher than like what, 700ft?
First season snowboarding, actually from when I post this, I've only gone 5 times. But I'm absolutely in love with the sport and plan on going out at least another 5-6+ times this season. People have told me I'm a pretty fast learner and have already hit rails & boxes in the progression park. Jibbing around is really fun and I'm looking for a park board. Okkkkayyy, so now what I'm asking you guys.

I need a board and bindings. I know there's alooottof topics on this out there but I've been researching many, many different boards, bindings and boots and want to know your guys final say on my decisions.

Indoor Survival
Stepchild Latchkey
Horrorscope (HATEEE the graphics but I guess its a really nice board)
K2 Parkstar
K2 WWW rocker
Burton Fix (EST :$$)
Signal Park Rocker?

Union Force
Union Contacts
Rome 390's

I am open to all suggestions, comments, remarks, any post really. I'm just kinda not sure on what direction to go, they all seem really good/techy/newbie friendly and they'll let me advance in my riding.
Feel free to ask any questions,


need new board halp plz

Firt of all..u want strictly jib board or something that will handle bigger jumps and carving? If its just for jibbing go for rome artifact 1985, horroscope, k2 www, if ur looking more for bigger stuff look at parkstar maybe jibpan from k2 , indoor survival , NS evo-r, ride dh2..just to name few. For bindings id look for forces , 390, k2 auto , flow nxt or even burton cartels..u have so many options u can go with freestyle park setup.
