Default Buying first board

Hello. I'm looking into buying my first board and wanted to get some opinions.

I'm 5'11" and ~190-195lbs with a size 12 shoe.

I have about 2 weeks worth of snowboarding experience. I've only boarded at Snowshoe Mtn, WV but I've done well on all their slopes except for their double black diamonds (haven't tried them yet).

I'm mostly interested in freeriding with an occasional jump/hop here and there on the slope. Maybe a time or two, I may venture into the terrain park to see what it is like but I don't plan on making it my focus.

Anyway, I've got my eye on the NS Premier board 161cm.

Premier \\\\ NS Factory Built Denver, CO

Opinions?

Will the board be wide enough for my shoe? (Is there a chart for shoe size versus board waist?)

Any other recommendations?

Thanks for your time!
