Default Give me a list of boards to take to a shop!

Hi

I'll be going into a shop late next month / early April to fully kit up and would love a good list of boards to help get me started. My specs:

5 foot 10
160 pounds
Size 9 shoe (haven't tried on boots yet)
Will be riding mostly groomers and powder, with maybe a bit of park
Still learning, but working a full season so will be riding every day and (hopefully) progressing

The boards I have on my list so far are:

Burton Joystick
Burton Flying V
Burton Custom
Never Summer SL-R
Ride Machete
GNU Riders Choice
Lib Tech TRS
K2 Darkstar

I'm not bias towards any brand - I just want the best board I can get.

How's my list looking so far? Any other recommendations or comments would be appreciated.

Thanks

That was on my list, but I took it off because I really wanted a shorter board - 155 preferably, to help me out at the start. The T.Rice looks good but the pointy is huge, starting at 161, and I got the feeling that the blunt was more of a park board?

Do the actual brick and mortar shops usually have more stock than the online shops?

The two boards I'm most interested in are the NS SL-R and Burton Joystick, but I noticed they are selling out real fast online. I won't be in Vancouver till the first week of April and I'm worried that they will be sold out everywhere...

Will I have better luck with availability in-store?
