If you want your expierence to be easier, I would go with the clash. The issue is that you will probably outgrow it in a year or two.

why did you put 'mcdonalds tray'? you know every person is going to vote on it and you're not going to get the answers you're looking for. rofl.

I made it so you can vote on more than one answer, in the hope that people would click McDonalds tray, have a giggle and then actually vote on a real board.. More fool me hahaha

Not sure there is an answer to this poll.
First, most are going to be brand loyal - the Burton hater will always pick something other than Burton.
It also depends on what your intended use is. The best beginner board for someone who wants to stay in the park might be different from someone riding all mountain in Colorado compared to someone riding in the east (different conditions).
Age and size would be a factor. My little girl is on a Burton Chicklet with Easy Rider Technology (convex base that lifts the edges off the snow making it harder to catch an edge). While it is the perfect board for her, it would suck for you (unless you are a 6 year old girl).
So I went with the McDonalds Tray.

I heard Torstein's riding a McDonalds tray disguised as a DC MLF.

K2 Raygun. Great board that you can learn on and grow into. Has K2's all-terrain rocker which is 70% 0 camber between the feet and 30% rocker in the tips. The nose has a medium rise while the tail has a mellow rise. This shape is great for a catch free ride while giving you tons of float in pow. The flex is dead middle so it's going to be good for all around riding.

I forgot to mention, the price for the quality is absolutely sick.
