Need help deciding on a new board

So last season was my first season snowboarding and I bought my first board from a friend for less than $100. Only problem is that its a 145 cm board (and its a few years old) and I need something around 154 cm. Can't complain for $100 however. I pretty much learned everything on it. I have all of the basic stuff down. I've started to hit the boxes/jumps. I just want to get the message out that I'm not a complete beginner, but I still have tons of room for improvement. Anyway, before I go to the store and buy whatever I can find, do you guys have any suggestions for me? My budget would be around $500. As much as I like riding in the park, I also like to ride the mountain. Please take that in consideration. Also, I have some Union Force bindings which are orange (lol, I screwed up buying the orange ones). It would be nice if they matched the board because I don't want to go down the slopes looking like an idiot. =p I was thinking about getting the Ride Buckwild or the GNU Park Pickle. Suggestions?

hey man snowboarding is the one sport where what color your shit is doesnt matter. my shits a rainbow man.

the buckwild is a very nice board. fits right in the middle of everything. i vote no for pickle. look into capita as well, they've got great boards for the price and i love the graphics. stairmaster extreme would be my vote (im a huge fan of camber).

but if you decide on buckwild, i have nothing bad to say about that board. i demo'd it after 3 guys from my local boardshop bought them.
