Default 170 lb 5'11 male 11.5 size feet - Need help finding a board

So I went snowboarding for the first time last weekend, and I had an absolute blast.

Just like what everyone says, I was on my ass for the first half of the day, but things started clicking and I was riding a lot better by the end of the day. For this trip I used a friends snowboard that he bought at a garage sale.

The width of the board was too small, and as a result my toes hung off the edge a good amount, which resulted in my toes catching the snow and me wiping out when attempting to do toe-side turns.

I am wondering what size board I should be renting/buying since we plan on going up either next week or the week after. I've already read and learned a lot on this forum and I really hope you guys can help me out!

Thanks!
