Which board?

Yes I recently just made a thread, tried to delete it but i'm a noob so this will be my last thread on this topic.

Yesterday I went to the snowboard asylum in london to try out some boots which were the burton ruler, 32 lashed, vans aura and salomon launch.

The launch boots were perfect, I either need a size 10.5 or 11 UK (I have big feet) that is my main concern,

I am 6 foot, 120lb and I believe I have found a good board and bindings (the burton custom reflex)

The rome factory rocker is 155cm (the guy in the shop recommended a smaller board), the main concern I have is are my feet too big? Do I need a wide board? He said to try and avoid it because I will mainly been doing rails and piste in the snow dome.

The board is hybrid, is this good? I don't need speed so much because the slope is only a few hundred metres and there are too many people to avoid.

I'm a confident rider but only have couple of weeks under my belt.

Is this a good board?

Any help will be appreciated, thanks.
