Default Help with choosing a board

Weight: 140
Boot size: 10
Riding style: Mostly pow and backcountry with some groomers, thinking of hitting the park a little bit
Age: 35, yeah I'm old
budget: $450 max
location of riding: NW (Summit at Snoqualmie to be exact)
Ability level: Beginner

Background: I'm pretty much a noob at snowboarding lol I've been reading up a lot recently trying to get as much info before the season starts as I can.

I've been riding for 2 years. Last year was when I got really interested and now I'm hooked. I only went like 6 times last season but I'm getting a season pass
this year so I'm going to be out as often as I can. I usually hit the pow in the backcountry and go on the groomers every now and then. I'm thinking of trying
out the park this year. From what I've gotten so far, I think that I need a camber or a camber hybrid (tell me if I"m wrong). I'm looking for suggestions for specific
boards that you think I should get along with the recommended size.

I've been looking at:

Ride Manic
Manic Snowboard | All Mountain | Ride Snowboards 2011-2012

Burton Barracuda
Barracuda Snowboard | Burton Snowboards

Salomon Titan
Salomon Snowboards & Bonfire Snowboarding Titan-Color - salomon-gear

Salomon Burner

Salomon Powder Snake

Ride DH
DH Snowboard | Park & Pipe | Ride Snowboards 2011-2012

GNU Dirty Pillow
GNU Snowboards Dirty Pillow

Rome Agent
Rome Agent Snowboard | Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate 2012

I know that this a huge selection but I'm trying to narrow down my choices and looking for any suggestions/tips.

Thanks in advance!
