What to get for my first board

So I have been snowboarding for a few years now and always rented and decided I wanted my own board this season. I want an all mountain park board. I was looking at the Burton Hero, Arbor Westmark, and the Bataleon Evil Twin. I am looking at the 2012 model of all this boards and was wondering which would be the best.

I haven't ridden any of these boards but from what I've heard I'd rank them 1A) Westmark, 1B) Evil Twin, 2) Hero

Well I can't find the Arbor Westmark 153 or the Bataleon Evil twin 152 anywhere so I guess I won't be getting either of those unless someone knows somewhere I can get one of them. Any other recommendations, I don't really want the Burton Hero because of the EST bindings but I might up end getting it anyways.

Why did you ask about those boards if you can't get them anyway??

I don't have a lbs, I have to get it online. I didn't look to see if I could find these because I figured I could find them on ebay or something. Now its between the hero and whatever you can recommend

Yea but I want the 2012 not the 2013. So anyone have any other recommendations on boards. Is the Rome Reverb Rocker better than the hero?

I own a 2011 k2 parkstar that i got at the end of last season. i've only got a chance to use it twice so far but i couldn't be happier with it. i think its supposed to be geared a little more toward the park but more than capable of handling all mountain. i'd suggest checking it and reading a bit about it to see if it fits your preferences. here's a link to the 2012 model. it's less to $260! and they have it in a 152.
