Need help choosing a board

I picked up snowboarding last winter after about 10 years of skiing. I would classify myself as intermediate; I mostly ride all over the mountain and hit the park a little. I want a board that I'm able to ride now but that I won't grow out of in a year, something that allows me to get better. I want a board that allows me to fly down the mountain but still works well in the park. The local board shop here has some good deals on last years models and I'm stuck trying to decide which one might be best for me.

Capita Black Death Speed Tribe 156
Ride Timeless 155
Ride Control 155
Venue Onyx 156

Any advice on any of these boards or any other boards would be excellent.

People are going to need your weight and boot size.

Some might like to know your age, single/married, and maybe a picture too...

Scratch the Control, it's an entry level board, which may benefit you if you are JUST starting out, but you claim you are intermediate, so I'd probably go with the Timeless.

I personally like long walks on the beach... But boot size and weight would be fine for now. Lets not rush things.

The Capita board is going to be relatively soft in comparison to the Timeless for example. But you could get away with it, depending on where you ride. (East coast? West coast?)
