Default New to Snowboarding, Size and Board HELP

Hey everyone,

New to snowboarding, have been out twice and have become addicted. Wanting to purchase equipment instead of renting as I will be going to the slops a lot next season and want to get better.

Have picked up the basics pretty quickly and can link turns so I don't want a board that I will outgrow too quickly.

I have been told that the K2 Playback is a great board for beginner to intermediate boarders and suits most conditions and how I will ride.

I am 6'3 and approx 225 pounds with size 11 US boot.

Would a 159Wide board be appropriate?

I can get this board really cheap and well within the $250 budget that I have.

Any advice on size would be much appreciated.
