Suggestions and Preferances?

I'm in the market for a new board and decided just to see what other suggestions and preferances you guys have on some boards

Here are the specs
Weight- 120
Boot size - 10's
Riding style-Freestyle and one or two days of freeriding and I'd say I would be Intermediate/Advanced
Age-15
budget-Trying to keep in under 420
Location-East Coast

I really want a board that's easy to press but can still hold up on the mountain. Some boards I've looked into have been the Nitro Swindle 148, the Never Summer Circuit 151, the Rome Graft 151, K2 Parkstar 152, K2 Darkstar 152, and the Ride Machete. I really don't much experience in getting a new board and any help would really be appreciated.

Do you have a preference on the camber of the board?

Rook, Parkstar, Swindle, Kink, Artifact '85. I would bet thats also in order stiff-soft. Anything around a 150 will be good.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

i'd say go for a rockered jibpan but k2 isn't making them this year. i have an 09 cambered jibpan and i love it because you can push it on the freeride, but it's still got enough flex to do butters and presses.

maybe you can find a good deal on a 2010 jibpan? i think k2 made it in both cambered and reverse cambered designs for you to choose from; i love the jibpan as a do anything board.
