I don't much about the boards you listed, but with size 11 boots you probably want to stay away from the boards with a narrower waist (i.e. low 250s and below). Mid 250s is probably okay, but it also depends on how big your boots actually are and your stance angle.

I do know a little about the Burton King and it is a pretty good beginner board for someone with bigger feet. You may not need something that wide, but it doesn't really hurt either. Of the two burtons, I'd go with the King over the bullet for sure. I don't know much about the other boards because I have big feet so have only researched wide boards (260+).
