Default Wakeboarder needs help picking out equipment

I've been wakeboarding for 15+ years, not professionally or anything and have only been snowboarding once about 10 years ago. We are planning a trip up to the NC mountains and I want to get into snowboarding. I live about 3 hours from the Sugar Mountain, NC and Appalachian Mountain, NC. That is where I would be riding at. I plan to snowboard around 3-5 times a year. I've researched the various boards, etc and I still need help or a starting place on picking out a board, boots, and bindings. Here is my info:

Sex: Male
Weight: 160lbs
Height:6'2"
Boot size: Wear a size 13 mens shoe
Riding Style: just ride down the mountain on the trails, would only do spin tricks, no rails, etc
Age: 30
Location:Near NC ski resorts
Stance: Right foot forward with binding ducked out


my wakeboard has lots of rocker in it, so would a snowboard with rocker work good for me so I don't catch an edge as much while learning? I ride both normal and switch on my wakeboard too so should I look for a twin tip board?

Thanks for the help!
