Unhappy Two Capita's - One Choice

Hey all, I am looking to getting my first setup to own. I have done a lot of research but just can't decide between these two sick boards. I want a "do it all" board for my first until I really discover what I love to ride. I've got my choices down to these two:

Capita Black Snowboard of Death - 2014
Capita Defenders of Awesome - 2014

DOA as it's less $$$

If you don't know what you're looking for, the DOA's maybe a little more well rounded.

DOA for a do-it-all IMO.

No kidding, that BSOD will eat you alive, and it's also an aggressive ride.

Well he said it'll eat him alive, then stated it's ALSO an aggressive ride. I feel like sarcasm was the intention. That the board is evil, and it rides aggressively.

The more you know (:

That depends. BSOD changes a lot from season to season - 2013-14 is more mellow for instance.

I should also say that I am around 5'9" and 130 lbs. The BSOD comes in at 156 at the shortest. Is that a tad too long? Also I am a pretty experienced rider, just never owned my own stuff. I'm open to any other suggestions for an all mountain board thats good in pow and trees. I've heard the YES basic is a good choice for some?
