Talking Newby On Site Needs Help

So I have spent the last week or so looking all over the place. Different recommendations come from all over but I think it would be nice to get some information from someone on the hill all the time.
Been on a board about 4 times Mt Washington Vancouver Island. Rental boards all times. Kinda hard to decifer which boards im liking better then the others as Im so new and not sure what to totally expect. I know this year im gonna be up there a lot so I feel its time to stop renting. Ive looked around at a few. Flow, Rossignol, Forum, Burton, 24/7, LTD, K2, Ride. Should I avoid any of these companies. Basically looking for tips on better then others or what people think I should begin at. Im more the all mountain/freestyle rider, riding goofy. weigh in about 195, standing 5'8 and a bit, and wear a size 10 boot. Not fat as most would think but pretty stalky. Charts recommend between 160-170 but I feel thats a little long. I have been leaning around 157-158. Looking for size tips and maybe board ideas. Comments on the 2010 Flow Strike 158.?
Thanks in advance
