Buying a new board for the first time

Hi everyone. Wondering if you guys can recommend some boards for me based on the following:

-Male
-Between 5'10" and 5'11"
-165lbs
-Not sure about boot size (standard street shoe is 11US)
-all mountain riding style
-27yrs old
-$600 budget (not averse to saving money though)
-Location: vancouver,B.C./whistler,B.C.
-Background info: I consider myself an intermediate rider (snowboarded about 10 times or so). I was a skateboard fanatic for several years prior (skated every day)which i think helped ease me into snowboarding.

thanks for the help

wow no hits, lol. thats never happened before? must of left out some info.

anyways, i did do my research. I just wanted to know what you guys at the forum might buy if you were me.

I have narrowed my board research down to a few:

Rossignol One - really interested in this board
Rossignol Angus
Never Summer SL
NS circuit
Ride Machete
Burton Custom
Lib Tech skate banana

I hear the skate banana is a reverse camber and is wishy washy at higher speeds. But i used to skateboard so i have been told it has that skateboard feel which sounds nice. I have been told by some sales people thatr are snowboarders ( i think) that hybrid camber boards are superior so i am thinking of the NS SL or the Rossi One with magnetraction. I dont have the luxury to demo these boards and compare them although i can exchange a board once i buy it and test it out that way. just seems like a lot of hassle. if any of you have ridden these boards I would be happy to hear what you have to say about them.

thanks
