board buying help!!!

So I'm looking to buy a new snowboard for the upcoming season. I'm looking for a good snowboard for someone who is new to freestyle snowboarding, but also one that will still be good when I am more advanced. I want it to be pretty flexible so that I don't have too much of a problem doing manuals and things like that. Also, I want it to be lightweight so that i can do spins, and durable so that it will last me at least 4-5 seasons (I only snowboard about 10-12 times a season). I am not a millionare, so i don't want it to be too expensive. Your help is greatly appreciated.

P.S. I also need bindings, so plz help me with that too

How about the Capita Horrorscope FK?
Capita's have a great value... awesome boards for much less than competing brands.

Thanks chupacabraman. That board is pretty much everything i'm looking for when it comes to specs, but the graphics on it are just too weird. I know I sound a little stupid right now, but i don't want to be stuck with a snowboard that in my opinion is ugly

Get a Burton Method or Vapor...those are pretty.

I would, but unfortunately I can't afford the vapor and I can't seem to find the method.

I agree about the graphics... terrible. I don't know what Captia was thinking last year and this year.
Their 2007 boards were so dope looking! I had a 2007 Indoor Survival: http://www.evogear.com/imgp/320/8689.Image.1.jpg

Also, just out of curiosity, how much would a 2006 flow dagger snowboard with rossignol bindings go for? I bought it for about $200 in '07 at skidazzle (ski and snowboard convention) in Chicago. Its only been used for two seasons and only has a few scratches on the top and is barely worn at the bottom.

Lightweight, Durable and lasting 4-5 seasons is a tough chore for a dedicated freestyle board...You want something tough look at the Never Summer Evo-R IMO!!!
