need help with buying a board!

hey guys! so i want to get a new board this year but i really need some help cause i have no clue with this stuff
i have a firefly board but i really dont it cuase its too stiff and its getting old
so can anybody recommend me any boards?
im probably at a intermediate level.
im looking for a ride or k2 board (or if anybody can recommend anything else), doesnt matter if its from an older season, im willing to spend a max or $400cnd, but preferably 200 to 300.
im a female, but i really hate pink or girly boards, i want something with like a neon colored bottom
i usually just carve but if i see bumps i like to "jump" them
never been in the terrain park or on the big jumps but i want to try this year
so perhaps an all mountain board?
and i kinda want to try a rocker board
i'm 5'2 so prob a board size of 142-145?

any recommendations or suggestions?
and oh, any online stores that i can order from that ships to canada?

-----edit------

and also, when`s the best timing to buy cheap boards? beginning of march or end of march?

i'm not a girl, but i have a friend that just moved here from colorado. she's a regular at breckenridge, and she just bought a Rome Lo-Fi 1985, and she absolutely loves it. I don't know much else other than that. And the board got Transworld Good Wood. A bit on the pricier end of your budget range.

I wouldn't know where to get it other than try googling it.

i love my life
