Help me find the right board?

Hi, excuse my mistakes, I don't speak english very well, but I'll try.
I've been looking for a board, but I haven't found the one I want. It has to be 153-157cm long, equal nose and tail length and it must look beautiful. By beautiful I mean.. well, I really like white and black, it should be mostly white with black marks and/or base. I like flourishes, vector art and things like that.
One example of what I like: [clickie]
And another: [clickie#2]
I would buy the first one immediately, if it would have equal nose and tail.
It can be with other colors too, but I like minimalism, so nothing too colorful (colorful base is ok, but the upper part should be mainly white).
Of course, the price matters too. Nothing too expensive, please.
Anybody help? Thanks in advance.

What kind of stuff are you going to be riding? What is your budget? The burton Custom X looks like what you want.

I googled that Burton Custom X, I like it a lot, but it's too expensive to order from US (I live in Estonia and all the shipping taxes are going to kill me ) otherwise it's exactly "on the edge" price, I cannot pay much more.. I'll look around to find some estonian shops that sell it. Thanks!

you really shouldnt buy a board based only on looks and colors.
the way the board performs is much more important, graphics should come second.

Like I said the first time, What are you mostly going to be riding? Powder, Park, Groomed, Everthing, etc?

snowsam17, I know, but... I just can't buy a board that I find ugly, I hope you understand.
Metalhead505, I guess that a little bit of everything, but more groomed and park, not powder. I want to ride both regular and goofy, so I don't want a powder-board with really big nose that would be annoying.

I found Burton Custom X from an estonian shop and if recalculated to USD... well, $1034 (in US it's ~$500).

yeah i understand, just make sure what you buy is right for what you ride. sexy boards are always nice

thats a pretty steep price for the custom x. i dont have any experience with the board so i cant tell you much about it, but im fairly certain if you spend a lot of time in the park, its gonna be to stiff for your liking. id definetly get some more opinions on it before you spend that much to make sure it is exactly what you are looking for.

Of course I search for opinions first, I'm not going to buy anything just because of its neat look.
Anyone has something to say about Santa Cruz Gian Simmen TT Pro? It's cheaper and I can afford it, but is it good?
