Between those two: t-rice for sure. The skunk ape is too wide. If you want a directional board the Darker series, Landvik Phoenix, would be much better options than the skunk ape. 160ish size.
Other cool boards from other companies- Salomon Mans board, Capita totally FK'N awesome, YES PYL, K2 Slayblade, Slash Straight, NeverSummer Heritage or raptor.
Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'
