Default Equipment Help

Weight - 150 pounds (68kg)
Boot size - 10 US
Riding style - Freestyle/Freeride (Leisure). Like it on the slopes and in the park mostly. Jumps and tricks. Not into steep areas.
Budget - Moderate budget. Save money where I can, but don't mind putting in a bit extra.
Your location of riding - Been to Japan only so far and enjoy winding trials and the park.

I've only started snowboarding recently and thoroughly enjoyed it, 5 days riding so far. I know it's something I want to keep doing for the rest of my life, so I decided to invest in my own decent gear. Been researching and I came up with a few boards that might be good and would like some opinions on whether I'm going in the right direction, or just some general tips would be appreciated too.

What I think so far: I should be going for 'all mountain/freestyle' boards. Around the 155 size. I would prefer a lighter board since I don't have the best stamina.

Burton Custom Flying V
Burton Joystick
Burton Hero
Ride Machete
Ride DH/DH2
K2 Turbo Dream

What do you guys think? Any comments would be appreciated. Cheers!
