New Rider, New Board

I just started snowboarding this past season and really like it. I am thinking about getting a board. I'm 5-4, 125 lbs. I was looking at the Burton Blunt and K2 WWW. I don't plan on being in the park too much, maybe a rail or jump here and there. Would either of these boards be ok for all mountain or would you recommend more similar to the Burton Clash and K2 Brigade?

Thanks.

If you don't plan on being in the park, I'd probably suggest a K2 Brigade I suppose... I'm not too familiar with the WWW, but I have a feeling the Brigade will hold up better on the rest of the mountain. (Not that familiar with Burton products, so I'll let someone else talk to you about them)

What's your foot size and what's your budget? If you have enough money we could probably do a lot better (not that they're bad boards, but they're definitely entry level).

I have a friend who has a WWW. I think you will love this board. While it is made for more Park it does excellent on all the mountain. Because it is not as stiff as the Blunt as a new rider you will probably enjoy it more.
