Need help on first board

Hey guys, ive been snowboarding for about 2 years now and ive decided that im going to finally purchase my own board
5 foot 11
205 pounds
size 10 and a half boot
budget about 450$
I usually fly dow blacks and have not really touched the terrain park but I would really like to get a park board and spend most of my time in the park since im pretty good at the mountain
I ride on mostly groomed packed snow and since I live in New york most of the snow is gunned soo its fake..

I have been looking on craigs list and found a 2006 never summer evo 161 only ridden twice that comes with tech 9 bindings for 400 is that a good deal?
I would love some suggestions thanks

for the evo i think it might be a good deal but i dont know anything on the bindings. There are a lot of good park boards out there. I ride an 09/10 rome artifact. I got it for 200 off ebay, new. You can always find some good boards online that are cheap and new. Ive only had a few companies where i coundnt i find a good deal on a new board like Never Summer, GNU, and Lib Tech
some boards to search are:
Rome Artifact or Artifact Rocker
K2 WWW Fastplant Parkstar and Darkstar
Capita Indoor Survival
Salomon Salomonder
Ride DH2.5 or Kink

these are all strictly park boards though seeing that youre just starting to hit the park you could get a Ride Machette, Rome Agent, and a K2 slayblade. That way you can still go cruising if you dont feel like hitting the park

I have a capita indoor survival I just love the flat kick technology it still holds stable at high speeds in the back country. But you can hit the park and feel like you are on a park specific board. I used to have a never summer evo but I did not like the rocker camber. You should demo the continuos rocker flat kick and a reverse camber board and see what you like best. I would size down also
