Since Atomic Boards no longer avaliable...

I was going to get a Atomic Axum or a Atomic Hatchet for my first board but all the stores around me decided to stop carrying the atomic brand since a year ago and Now i have to look for alternatives

A bit about me
Height: 5'8"
weight: 156 lbs
Skill: I suppose intermediate? been snowboarding for 6 years on and off (taken all the snowboarding courses possible except for half pipe or park but its something i want to try in the future)
Feet size: 10
Age: 22 Male

Ideal board: something twin shaped as i like to ride switch sometimes, prolly mid to hard flex
I will not be going in deep powder with this board nor off the beaten track into the wood but more on the slopes and attempting to try out the pipe or park.

So I went into the store for some suggestions and the store clerk suggested a few

Salamon Drift Rocker (seems a bit soft on the flex for me imo)
Ride DH2 ( my pick so far... it somehow caught my eye but the store said it might be too stiff?)
GNU Carbon Credit (i looked it up myself on the internet and it seems pretty nice)

If it matters i am prolly going to put burton mission binding on whatever board i find...

I was just wondering about the 3 boards and if there is anything else i can choose from since there will be a huge sale of last year's equipment with discount this weekend i was hoping i can pick something up from there...
