Default what size board do i get?

i'm bout to invest in my 1st snowboard. i've been looking into wide freestyle boards because i want a twin tip so i can learn to use both feet and i wear a size 12. i am about 5'11 and weigh about 185. i've been looking at a lot of charts that put me right around a 160 or somewhere around that size, but i've also seen that on some introduction sites they say freestyle boards generally size down a little bit. so around what size do yall think i need? i've been seeing a lot of discount sites because its off season so been looking at k2, nitro, rome and forum boards. so far people have told me to stay away from the burton wide freestlye ones. what do yal think?
