What board?

I just started snowboarding this past season and really like it. I am thinking about getting a board. I'm 5-4, 125 lbs size 9 boot. I was looking at the Burton Blunt and K2 WWW. I don't plan on being in the park too much, maybe a rail or jump here and there. Would either of these boards be ok for all mountain or would you recommend more similar to the Burton Clash and K2 Brigade?

Thanks.

I use to ride a Burton clash, Its a great board overall for all mountain riding. You can still take it through the park but it doesnt really have a ton of flex so dont really expect to do too much buttering. But for you still kinda being a beginner you wont be doin to much of that anyways haha.

It's a tough call. Those two decks are NOT all mountain boards. They are very soft, and meant mostly for the park. That said, softer decks are much easier to learn on, so that could be a benefit. Overall, I would suggest something a little more "all-mountain" based (e.g. the Clash, etc). If you have not read it yet, take a look at this thread.
