Default need my own snowboard

so im not much into the pipe game and stuff and sometimes hit boxes cant do anything other then 180 anyways i need a boared. since now ive used rentals and want to take my snowboarding to the next level. and to do that i feal my own board would help alot plus rentals around here SUCK.what board is under 300 and is good for all mountain but mostly some carving on groomers and some powder but also for hitting some jumps nothing huge though. i can switch between both feet easily but left forward is more comfortable. just wondering when im riding a snowboard (rental) and im going straight but all of the sudden the back end slides out slowly and then i eat it what is causing this.
i weigh about 140 and am about 5"9"

I am not experienced in snowboarding at all and this will be my first season so I won't try to give you any technical information seeing as I don't have a broad knowledge base. I am in your same situation almost. I want a board where I can do some groomers and basic mountain riding but nothing extreme. I want to mainly do park riding and just cruising around. I am going to be buying the rome garage rocker 2011. 1. It is cheap. This is a pretty big deal for me because I am in college so anything price cuts I can make are wonderful. 2. The design of the board. It is a twin rocker and flexible so I can learn on it. It will be a bit more forgiving board. 3. Profit???? Haha. Anyways yeah so this is the board I am getting and I haven't heard a lot about it but from what others have said it is a good beginner-intermediate board.

V rockers are decent for people who are just getting into the game. They are a little more forgiving and a bit easier to flex and maneuver...From personal experience, I outgrew using the V to something with a little more pop. Now you can probably find just about any brand board for a decent price. Good luck finding plain boards...Snowboarding just isn't a plain lifestyle!

anything from flow in the last 2 years, the era, verve or merc would all be good learning boards, and can all be found for around 300 in 2011's
