Park Board - 3 choices, help

Alright, so this is my situation.

I'm going to be riding mostly park this year. I went to 2 different shops and what they had to offer for the lower price range was the:
-Capita Stair master 152
-YES Snowboard - The Basic 154
-Endeavor Colour series(the whole range) and a High 5(the whole range)(but the high 5 is a little high for my range as of now)

Now what i'm looking for is a softer board so i don't have to put as much work into my presses and stuff, i really just want to have fun this year and goof around. I'm 6feet in height and 145lbs-150, i'm a lanky guy, Oh and the snow here is normally packed and icy, on occasion i get to go to decent hills like Tremblant but thats rarely.

I'm not moving away from those choices so any suggestions on what would best suit me would be highly appreciated.

I'll be the voice of dissent I guess and say Yes. I've always wanted to try a Yes and never been impressed with the durability I've seen from Capita. I'm not easy on gear, so I value durability highly. I can't say anything about the durability of Yes though. I've just always been curious.

I know Capita is the proven one out of these boards. The colour by endeavor is a really really fun board from what i hear. And it has an extruded base so they can take a beating. But YES looks like a cool company, they are branched off from burton by a bunch of guys the apparently from what i heard were fed up with Burton so they decided to make their own boards and they do perform well. The Yes basic supposedly outperforms most boards at its price range and boards above it. But the colour just seems so sick. I'm stuck between Endeavor colour and Yes the basic.

Anyone got first hand experience they can throw my way?
