Are any of these boards worth buying at 35% off?

I'm a beginner, learning how to carve, hope to start riding some small boxes by the end of the year.

I have a 35% off coupon for Sports Authority on Thanksgiving day. I looked at their boards and this is what they have- original price is listed...

Burton Clash $279
Burton Indie $259
Burton Verdict $259
Ride Impact $249
Ride Kink $319
K2 Illusion $249
Various Sims models

Thanks!

I've heard pretty good things about the Ride Kink but that's the only one on that list that I know anything about by 1st or 2nd hand.

i looked at the list without reading any of the original post and i said sounds like a bunch of sports authority boards but along with Fallensaint, the kink is the only thing ive heard anything about. its a pretty whippy board though i believe.

The Indy was a decent board for learning, I think they last made it in 2k7.
Is it the one with the camo print

Yeah I've noticed that SA doesn't exactly carry the high end gear. The Kink, from what I could find, sounds more suited to the park which I am not there yet skillz-wise.
