Beginning tricks and board stiffness?

I used to ride a 164 custom x wide- I could never even do a butter on that thing. I don't know if it's just that I suck or the board was too long and too stiff for me to get any bend.

I really want to learn some of the basic stuff- butters, nose and tail rolls, 180s.. just small stuff.

I have a brand spanking new lib tech hot knife 159 on the way... its rated as a 5-6 for stiffness. Is this an okay board to learn these things on? Im 6'0 and 175 if that makes any difference.
